    When I watch the videos on my computer before I upload them they look perfect, but once I upload them via youtube they look grainy, not smooth and crisp, so I'm obviously doing something wrong.

    I play at 1920x1080 resolution. My upload settings are set at 15000 kbps, 60 fps 1920x1080. I record at 2160p 4k Resolution, 100 mbps, 60 fps. Feedback would be awesome, thanks guys.

    Upscaling a video makes it look better and disable resample if your using Vegas

    I think I may need a better video editing software. What do you use?

    Always upload in 4k even if it means you need to upscale your content in your editing software! It forces YouTube to encode with their VP9 codec which looks significantly better even when a viewer watches in 1080p

    You've told me this before but i'm confused. Is rendering the same as exporting? I don't have an option to render, So i'm assuming it renders it before I export it. It asks me for bitrate, resolution, fps and whatnot. When i switch the Resolution to 1440 it looks bad

    EDIT: Figured out how to render in 1440, but the video doesn't fill the whole screen

    Hey man,

    If you're recording at a high resolution and render (export) to a lower resolution, it will cause the renderer to merge pixels, which gives it a grainy, smudged-up effect

    The general rule is export the same resolution as recording, and if possible, upscale with ai upscale rendering.

    If you have any questions just google the pieces of information i have shown here. "Upscale render" "free export software" "how to upload to youtube" etc will get you fruther, make you learn better, and provide you with a far quicker resolution.

    Also, if youre into this kindof stuff, i hoghly recommend the adobe package. If you have a student email you can get it for 30 bucks a month. You can make 30 bucks off youtube with like... idk 10k views per video, could be wrong dont quote me. But thatll give you a goal to work towards as well.

    Goodluck!
