I hope you can see how pixelated the face is. But the video file that is being used pre-render is very clear, and I can't figure out why blender is outputting such low quality.

Here's the information on the input files... (i haven't checked all of them but I don't mess with them so hopefully they're all the same info)

  • Quicktime
  • Dimensions: 1280 x 800
  • Codecs: AAC, H.264
  • Encoding software: Mac OS X 10.14.2 (18C54)

I've messed with blenders settings as much as I could, and can't seem to make it work.

Here's all my settings:

I've tried setting the output dimensions to 1280 x 800 because that's what Quicktime gives me the raw video files as... but that didn't help at all.

Any suggestions?

I'm putting these videos on YouTube if that makes a difference.

  • $\begingroup$ @Yash It's a real life human doing a screen recording. Video editing... Edit: Anyway.. Switching to H.264 codec fixed the problem. $\endgroup$ – John Curry Feb 9 '19 at 19:35

Switching the Codec to H.264 fixed the quality.

  • $\begingroup$ Thankyou, you are literally my temporary god and savior, I need to create a lovely little montage for my fam, and I kept getting a pixelated output from high quality photos, I did the same thing, I remvoed the H.264 (I forgot that in the YT tutorial, they said dont touch it) $\endgroup$ – Mister SirCode Apr 20 '20 at 22:14
