Please follow these guidelines to create video and audio files that will upload successfully and work well in Easygenerator.
A codec is the format in which your video will be encoded. Easygenerator accepts most major video codecs, but for the best results we recommend using H.264. If you’re uploading High Definition (HD) video, choose the High Profile H.264 setting instead of Main Profile.
When preparing your video for upload, it’s best to maintain the video’s native frame rate when compressing your video. If your footage exceeds 60 FPS, we will automatically reduce the frame rate. If there is an option for keyframes, choose the same value you used for frame rate. Important: Always choose “constant” frame rate instead of “variable” frame rate.
Bit rate (also known as data rate) controls the visual quality of the video and its file size. If your video editing software gives you the option, choose a “variable” bit rate and select a value from the ranges below. You can experiment with different rates if your file is too large or you’re not happy with the quality of your source file.
|Quality||Bit rate (kbit/s)|
|SD||2,000 – 5,000|
|720p||5,000 – 10,000|
|1080p||10,000 – 20,000|
|2K||20,000 – 30,000|
|4K||30,000 – 60,000|
Videos come in all shapes and sizes but these are some of the most common formats.
|Standard Definition (SD)4:3 aspect ratio||640 × 480|
|Standard Definition (SD)16:9 aspect ratio||640 × 360|
|720p HD16:9 aspect ratio||1280 × 720|
|1080p HD16:9 aspect ratio||1920 × 1080|
|2K16:9 aspect ratio||2560 × 1440|
|4K16:9 aspect ratio||3840 × 2160|
Codec: AAC-LC (Advanced Audio Codec)
For the best results, we recommend using AAC-LC (low complexity) for the audio codec.
Data rate: 320 kbit/s
For the best results, encode your audio at constant rate of 320 kbit/s.
Sample rate: 48 kHz
For the best results, set your audio sample rate to 48 kHz. If your working setting is already less than or equal to 48 kHz, leave it as it is.
