Compressing video is the final step in producing video for distribution. There are a few things that should be constant for all video used in  CenarioVR:

Max frame rate

We recommend encoding videos using the following compression guidelines:

Samsung Galaxy S8+
Google Pixel+
LG G6+

To get started, we recommend using Handbrake to compress your videos, along with presets available here you can download and use in Handbrake:

To use these presets in Handbrake, select the “Presets” menu item from the menu, select the “Import from file” menu item, choose your preset file, and start encoding!

If you use Adobe Premiere or Adobe Media Encoder, you can get that preset here: CenarioVR4K preset
