No 4K Export possible? Reason: Youtube quality!
Hello, I'd like to know if it's planned to support exporting videos into 4K anytime soon?
I've made a test on Youtube, one video in 1080p 60 FPS, 1.6 GB large.
For the second video in 4K I took the original video and simply upscaled it via a trial software that can do that upscaling. The resulting video was only ~600 MB large, as it wouldn't let me insert a higher quality, but despite all of that, the upscaled 4K video looks so much better!!!
The reason is that the way Youtube compresses uploaded videos is dependant on the uploaded resolution; Youtube apparently uses the VP9 format if you upload in 4K, which means even the (way worse) upscaled 4K videos looks better, also in 1080p, than the original better-quality 1080p video I uploaded!
As I love to do music video animations with a lot of movements and dark areas, it'd be a dream come true for me to be able to export in 4K with Hitfilm Express so I got no pixelation on my videos, due to Youtube's bad compression
Thank you in advance for a reply, have a nice weekend,
