Can someone help! Probably simple for most, but I am trying to upload Video to Istock. I sucessfully uploaded one end of last year, but I can not remember the magic recipe again. The Video training manual just confuses things more.
Can anyone give me the recomended step by step work flow to get an AVI video from Photoshop CS6 into Istock? i.e. Rendering set up, and then if I need Quick Time what that set up should be. I have Quick Time Pro 7.7. Oh! I hope you can help, I am very frustraighted. Thank You Charles

I can't give you a step-by-step, but your objective is to upload in Apple Photo JPEG format, for progressive (if appropriate), or as interlaced if not. Quality setting between 95 and 99%.

This is from an old discussion we had on the subject:
Note: Quicktime options in PS CS6 will not let you export on Photo JPEG for iStock but it does export to uncompressed which can be imported to any Quicktime compatible video application including Quicktime Pro and Exported as Photo JPEG Progressive or MJPEG for interlaced for iStock.
Here is a Screen grab of the export video dialogue and scene file of a quick try I did on it.

So Export Uncompressed and then open in Quicktime pro and export to PHOTO JPEG codec at 92% and up. for graphics 95% and up. For footage 92% looks to be nearly identical due to the noise component. If doing green screen 95% plus on footage too.

It's really handy to keep CS5.5 around to avoid the CS6 shenanigans.

This software gives me the most reliable resuls for export: Mpeg Streamclip
