To answer all questions about how to mix multiple shows into 1 big video, here's how we created the promo video of the latest BixPack:

BluffTitler settings

Every template has been exported as a separate video file with the following settings:
-Super high quality: Choose SETTINGS > SUPER HIGH QUALITY
-A resolution of 1920 x 1080 (FHD): Choose FILE > Set show resolution...
-UNCOMPRESSED AVI and a framerate of 30 FPS: Choose FILE > Export as video...


The mixing is done in VEGAS Pro 16:


The audio is also added in VEGAS.

Sync audio and video

Most music is built out of melody lines that last 4 bars. And every bar has 4 beats. When using a 120 BMP audio track, 4 bars last exactly 8 seconds. This works perfectly
with 8 second templates.

Now watch the promo and notice that the intro lasts exactly 8 seconds. This way the 1st template starts beautifully right on the 1st beat of the new melody line!

MP4 encoding

For maximum quality, all temporary files are uncompressed and encoding to MP4 is postponed until the very end. The encoding is also done in VEGAS.

Here's the result!

Here are the encoding settings in VEGAS Pro 16.

Make sure the resolution and FPS is exactly the same as the exported BluffTitler shows.

Since the target platform is YouTube and YouTube is going to re-encode the video, use a high bitrate.
