Avid DNxHD Codec
As recommended by Sam and Niko, this codec allows for zero data loss when encoding your video footage while keeping file size manageable. This makes it great for HD editing! We wouldn’t want any data loss when exporting between software packages, e.g from after effects into premiere.
While in the media encoder, choose quicktime as the format, and select the avid DNxHD codec. In options, pick RGB for color levels (709 color space is primarily for HDTV), choose whether you want an alpha channel, and pick the resolution that you are working with for your project.
