If you have a good upload speed and enough memory.
Well it's really up to you to decide sure full HD is considered to be better than 720p but hey as long as the brickfilm is good nobody should give a beep.
If you're thinking of buying a new webcam to use 1080, I'd just stick to the 720. Other brickfilmers use this and it looks fine. And it's not likely that a lot of people will blow up your video on YouTube to 1080 and watch it on their monitor regularly.
If you have enough memory on your hard drive, then sure, why not? It doesn't make a huge difference, so I usually just watch videos in 720p, even if the 1080p option is there.
720p, cause watching a 1080p video on YouTube is suicide.
Here's my two cents: (Therefore each of my points is worth 2/3rds of a cent. )
#1. My computer screen isn't even 1080p, (Almost, but not quite) so it wouldn't do anything for me.
#2. I don't like to wait on stuff to load, so I rarely watch stuff as high as 720p.
#3. I don't normally watch stuff in full-screen anyway, so it doesn't really matter what it is, it's small enough to not change that much.
I normally view movies in 480p, unless it's something like Unrenewable, in which case I watch it in full-screen and set it as high as it can go so I can drool at the effects.
But IF my screen could go that high, and IF I had enough time, I MIGHT watch it in 1080p.
So just do whatever you want, if that's what you want to do, go for it.
I don't think theres any need to go higher than 1280x720 for youtube.
If its vimeo then i tend to go for 1920x1080 yes.
Well you could film in 1080, do all you editing, then scale it down to 720. By doing this you won't lose any picture quality during editing and encoding.
It all depends if your base film is in full HD or not. In some of my animations, I made the resolution of the clips very high, and it didn't look right in 720, I had to bump it up to 1080.
I was thinking of making my upcoming star wars film in full HD, it looks like it's going to be 10 minutes long. Most of the time, I watch longer films in full screen or on my TV.
Then yes. I would anyways, if I could already shoot 1080. If not, then prolly not.
Usually, as long as it's not blury, i'd say it's fine (i know, i am a noob to brickfilming, but i watch allot of em)
sure, if you want HD, do it, but, is there any real advantage?
The entertainment is in the bricks, not the definition.
It really is up to you, as it's been said before. I upload all of my videos in 1080p, as I have the capability and time to do so. With that being said, I rarely ever watch videos on YouTube at anything higher than 480p. It just takes too long to load and it still looks fine in my opinion. The benefits you'd find in shooting in 1080p would probably come in the form of post-production. With a higher resolution video, you'd have a bigger window for cropping or other pan or zoom effects you might apply in the editing process. I shoot using a Canon T2i, which records 18MP images so I have a really nice area that I can crop in and it still will look great.
However, if someone's videos boast 1080p resolution, but terrible animation skills and ability, I would be much less likely to watch it. On the other hand, if you have great skill and can only produce at 720p than that's great! Of course, if you put the skill together with the resolution, it's just like icing on the cake.
If you haven't been animating for very long or still feel like there is plenty of room for improvement (such as myself), I would recommend focusing time and resources onto improving your animating abilities rather than focusing on the video's resolution.
Still, it is always tempting to want to go for the 1080p. I'm not sure what I would have chosen. I got into Brick-Filming after I already owned my DSLR, so I didn't really have to think much about whether I was going to export in 1080p. Hope some of that might have helped someone!
EDIT: Just checked out your YouTube channel (and subscribed ), so now I have a better understanding of what you can do. Your animating is great, and the audio sounds great as well. 1080p might be a logical addition in the future! Keep up the good animating!
