When you use the YouTube 720p HD or the YouTube 1080p HD preset in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014, videos with high frame rates (50 / 59.94 fps) default to smaller sizes than the frame size the preset indicates.

Also, an error message is received when changing to a higher frame rate, and the change is not allowed.

Solution

The YouTube HD presets that come installed with Adobe Media Encoder 2014 have the level set too conservatively for higher frame rates. It's necessary to adjust these settings manually.

  • For the 720p preset, change the level under Basic Video Settings from 3.1 to 4.0.
  • For the 1080p preset, change the level under Basic Video Settings from 4.0 to 4.2.
