Adjusting the Bitrate

Adjusting the Bitrate

By Maliek Whitaker

Pinnacle Studio Pro Maliek shows you how to adjust the peak or average bitrate when exporting or rendering your video files. Bitrate refers to the amount of data required to encode one second of video or audio. It is usually measured in megabits per second for video and kilobits per second for audio. Bitrate affects the video quality, the file size, and the bandwidth needed to view the video online: the higher the bitrate, the better the quality and the larger the file. Remember, all of this is independent of video codec and resolution,which also affect the video quality and file size.
