I usually export using ProRes422 HQ.
Click on the Output Module in the Render Queue >Select Format Option > Change Video Codec to ProRes 422 HQ

Hope that helps.

I found it best to export in the highest quality possible (ProRes 422 HQ or Quicktime PNG sequence usually do the job depending on what I'm exporting) and then convert to H264 using one of the Youtube presets in Adobe Media Encoder

You want a quicktime MOV file after exporting from After Effects.

I usually use MeGUI,  replacing the x264 10bit to it. I export using CRF 24, preset Film and others advanced option. But, anyway, youtube not like quality and will end up with your video the same way.

[ah, I use Cineform to raw export]

there is no ProRess on windows, but there are plenty of good alternatives (I would say even to many, because hard to chose), like DNxHD, and many other, It is always a hard decision between size, render time and quality. I mostly do PhotoJPEG in mov container if I won't do grading after, if I have to grade - I'll try to stay uncompressed as far as I can in workflow.

Natively @ansius is correct. Although I haven't tried it, the most recent version of FFMPEG is supposed to output/convert to ProRes on windows, plus there's now a front end GUI available for it, it's called AnotherGUI.

See here: http://www.stuudio.ee/anothergui/

There's also a YouTube video tutorial, just search for it.

When I said now I didn't mean since like last week, I mean considering FFMPEG is natively a command line tool.
