today i experimented a little with movieplayer and moviestar and premiere.
- dimocopo,249k,124k/sec, 2secs,15fps, 553x120 made in movieplayer from dimocopo f0001 logomotion animation.
- dimocopo.movie, 32k, 16k/sec,2 secs, 5fps, 80x120 made in premiere with cinepak comp.-the movie is no good.
- dimocopo2.movie, 33k, 17k/sec, 2secs, 5fps, 120x80, cinepak, premiere. - very blurred.
- dimocopo3.movie, 33k, 17k/sec, 2 secs, 5fps, 120x80, cinepak, premiere - higher data flow set but didn't seem to make a difference.
- dimocopo4.movie, 99k, 49k/sec, 2secs, 10fps, 200x80, cinepak, premiere - concrete is blurred seems to be too fast.
- dimocopo5.movie,237k, 59k/sec, 4secs, 5fps, 240x180, cinepak, premiere - concrete hard to read still.
- untitled2.movie, 116k, 29k/sec, 4secs, 5fps, 240x80, cinepak, premiere, - this seemed to be the best quality for least size.
- dimocopo7.movie, 132k, 16k/sec, 8secs, 5fps, 120x80, cinepak, premiere, - this was blurry and pixelated.
from untitled2.movie i made dimocopo1.mov in movieplayer and dimocopo1b.mov in moviestar.
i also made from untitled2.movie dimocopo2.mov, directly into moviemaker.
none of them are very satisfactory.
i noticed that moviestar has a compression selection similar to premiere so i tried making the original logomotion animation into various compressed versions.
this is the dimocopo animation compressed with video in moviestar maker.hit me!this is the dimocopo animation compressed with animation(16 colour) in moviestar maker.hit me some more!
- dimocoms.mov, 91k, 41k/s, 5fps, 16 clour, cinepak - very good quality, like the original.
- dimocoms2.mov, 54k, 24k/s, 5fps,4colour, animation - came out black and white.
- dimocoms3.mov, 47k, 21k/sec, cinepak, least res - just as blurry as the previous batch, but lower in size.
- dimocoms4.mov, 72k, 30k/sec, 5fps, video, least. - good quality.
- dimocoms5.mov, 44k, 20k/s, 5fps, photo-jpeg - a little jerky.
i believe the video compression with moviestar is the best so far comparing favourably with the animated gif which is 91k, and close in quality to the original which was 250k, a considerable saving of loading time.
the quicktime internet maker could be useful in converting qt movies for use on the net, but to prove this i will have to try all the compression choices in premiere first.
i quickly remade the dimocopo logomotion animation in premiere using video, least compression at 5fps and got a 44k file which i then processed through quicktime internet tool. it gave even better results than the moviestar clips.look, look!
