In our untiring commitment to being the ultimate resource for those seeking factual information on uploading HDR videos to YouTube, we’ve added another comparison that aspires to settle the question: should you be transcoding XAVC S-I to HEVC or to ProRes 422 when uploading to YouTube? This 10-second clip took 83 seconds to finish processing in Compressor, creating a whopping 335 MB file in ProRes 422, whereas the job was completed in a mere 40 seconds in HEVC, with a ridiculously tiny file size of only 14 MB – and I struggle to tell them apart when seated just two feet away from my LG 55CX.

One thought on “ProRes 422 or HEVC?
