I'm shooting AVCHD video on my Sony A65 @ 50fps. I'm then taking this footage and editing it in Cyberlink PowerDirector 10 Ultra. Then I use PD10u to upload the video to YouTube directly in 1080p format.
Resulting videos can be seen here as examples. -- http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLB57BB6A867F7D7E2&feature=plcp
My problem is that although the resulting video is good, even the 1080p is not completely smooth and if compared to the original footage obviously not as good.
Is YouTube limiting the FPS / bitrate ? Is the 50fps (I believe this is AVCHD2?) causing the issue ? Are there limitations in PD10u ?
Any thoughts appreciated.
