using Camtasia 2019.0.2... I recorded some videos with my iPhone xs and uploaded them to Camtasia to edit together as one project. it looks good in Camtasia preview but when I export it to mp4 it always comes out low -quality, unlike Camtasia preview. (I'm trying to upload it to Facebook as an ad.) in camtasia, i have my dimensions set to 1280x720 and when i share the project as a local file my settings are as in this pic..
 

i can't figure how to solve this issue and i fail to find any videos on youtube. although i'm sure there are some out there

is there a certain way i need to go about trying to make facebook video ads with an iphone so that they have good quality?

thanks.

My first thought is to set the project settings to 1920x1080 as the image will likely look a lot better, even if you have to reduce the file size later. I have not tried performing the steps you have, but think you are using decent settings for the output. Hope this tip helps and maybe others that follow your workflow can help further.

The profile I use is H264 (High Autolevel), so try that if it's still an option (I'm on an older software version). Also, I was wondering why your key frame rate is so high, and whether or not that will make a difference, as I use 25, and I get good results.
