Come on guys, everybody knows Apples QT technology is far superior to anything out there! Edit an iMovie, (or REALLY edit w/ Final Cut Pro), compress with Media Cleaner Pro, and your vids will look AWESOME! :cool:
BTW, avi's are always chunky!
Yes, DIVX would be the wave of the future. MPEG4 encoding will solve the skinny pipeline vs.hi-quality dilemma, and we'll probably be seeing hi-res streaming soon. For now though, were all stuck with trying to use the best codecs to squeeze as much information and quality as possible thru a 56k connection. Personally, I love the options available to me when compressing for the web, using Quicktime, and Media Cleaner. Ive seen some really awesome half-res,(360X240), clips that look beautiful, even if it is half size, (of full res DV). I also have heard about .asf files being very clean, but havent seen enough of them to dissect. Pretty cool stuff! :cool:
Okie-You gotta love iMovie just for the great codecs! The "save for web" function cant be beat!
I used the videos on your page and made a cool music video.... i just need a good codec to make it small and still have good video quality. when it's finished i'll send it to you if you want. can you suggest any good codecs?
ok, i got the file to be around 37megs (remember, it 4 mins long) and still look good. i had to zip and split it to put it on the web. if you want to see it you have to download all the files and and use the multi_video1.zip file to put them together. you can get it HERE.
