My videos are so grainy. I need some good vegas render settings. I record my gameplay using an Elgato HD60 at 1080p 60fps 40mbps. I record my facecam using OBS at 1080p 30fps 1000 kbps.You should follow Google's recommended rendering settings as close as possible. Link your video so we could judge it ourselves.
My general rule for High Quality is:
-Encode using H.264 codec (.mp4), Sony Vegas calls it MainConcept AVC.
-At 50 Mbps Bitrate.
-30 fps, though the framerate value might change soon on YouTube.
-Encoding Method: VBR 1-pass
-Field Order: Progressive
-Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square (1:0)
-Make sure video is recorded and rendered at valid 16:9 aspect ratio resolution (e.g. 1280×720, 1366×768, 1600×900, 1920×1080, 2048×1152, 2560×1440).
-If video has too much high detail and fast motion movement then consider upscaling video to 1440p to force higher bitrate stream on YouTube.
-If you are Sony Vegas user and rendering in AVC makes your video darker then you have to apply the Sony Levels Effect.
