After capturing the video last night, I decided it would be a good idea to resize all the captured frames and add the vignette using Lightroom before encoding, that way i can control the quality of the resize and also get the vignette exactly how i like. This should not only improve quality, but also take a lot of pressure off the encoder and speed things up, so any future encoding changes wont have to repeat so many processes.
Anyway, while the video encodes, here are a couple of shots from the first half.
Edit: Just to clarify, I said in my previous post I was going to capture the frames at 1920×1221, but after a quick test, the quality was nowhere near what I wanted. So again i captured at 3840×2441 and I’m downsizing to 1920×1221. I’ll crop out 141 pixels from the top and bottom to get the 1080 required by the codec.
