Just thought I’d post an update… I got my first upload accepted, yay! However I didn’t use Photo JPEG encoding. I had some problems with some strange gamma/white balance shift in rendered video. Instead I used 4-pass MainConcept H.264 encoding – rendering was done with Sorenson Squeeze.
Hey videologio, thanks for your quick reply. I mostly don’t have to deal with QuickTime files so I wasn’t sure about that type of encoding. I’ve tried png encoding, but produced files were unreasonably large – anything longer than 25 seconds in 1920×1080-50i resolution was over the 500MB upload limit. I guess I’ll use jpeg encoding for larger files…
I’m preparing some of my footage for my first upload here. I have read the Stock Footage Upload Instructions and noticed that is says the only format that will be accepted is QuickTime MOV . However, while browsing other recently uploaded files I’ve noticed not all of them are in this format.
Since I as many other Windows users have various problems rendering to QuickTime container, my question is: Is from some point on the only acceptable format really QuickTime MOV or would it be okay if I upload my footage rendered with MainConcept AVC or MPEG -2?
