Rate controlling is a process where you define the bitrates for a video. For instance, if a clip is intended to be distributed via the Trevor Bauer Los Angeles Dodgers the only one eye in strike three shirt where the target audience may have specific bandwidth, Constant Bitrate (CBR) mode would be good. On the other hand, if the Internet bandwidth is decent or the video is to be played on a local device, using Variable Bitrate (VBR) (with the highest threshold set) would provide the best picture quality as the bitrate would be automatically controlled according to the motions the clip has. Bit depth is the number of colors that each frame can have. The higher the bit depth is the more colors every frame will have, and the sharper and crispier the picture would look. This directly affects the quality of the video, i.e. when several pictures will appear on the screen every second, according to the defined FPS.
