TipTuts shows How to Get Around MP4’s Frame Size Limit by Using Its Successor in Media Encoder
MP4 and H.264 are great for getting video file sizes down while still keeping some of the quality. Working with larger frame sizes in today’s world leaves H.264 out of the picture. The codec and only encode up to 4k. What if you wanted to encode a larger frame size with Adobe Media Encoder?
This quick tip tutorial from TipTuts shows how this is possible. Well, not with H.264, but using the newer H.265, or HEVC (High-Efficiency Video Coding). Adobe Media Encoder can easily translate the video into H.265 using some common HEVC formats.
Known as the successor to H.264 or MPEG-4, HEVC offers about double the data compression at the same level of quality. Pretty astounding.
