    Personally, I use MP4…. It comes with DIVx.

    I have the latest version of Divx installed, but MP4 doesn’t show up as an available audio codec in Premiere. What do you use to compress your video that allows MP4 for the audio?

    Thanks,

    Well, it was shot with a VHS-C camcorder, but I used Videowave to capture, and it only captures stills at 320×240. But since the entire thing was bluescreened, there was a lot of 3d stuff made. In the end, the “rendered sequences” were six finished stages rendered with the Quicktime Animation codec*, and then put into one project. I watched the RM version last night, and I’m so disappointed at the compression. It really destroys the lightsabers and other certain effects.

    *The Quicktime Animation codec is a lossless format, which means that it’s compressed video, but is as good as uncompressed video. The only problem is that it takes up huge amounts of space. There’s a new lossless Quicktime codec out that supposedly is as good but uses less disk space, but I forgot what it’s called.

    Comet, you seem to use Digital Video I think; Considering the amount of disk space you use for a rather short film like AOTC… Or am I wrong?

    Ok ok. How much space is there on your computer? There is only 6 gigs on ours. So… yeah, we need a new computer.

    Attack of the Clone: About 2 gigs of source files, 6 gigs of rendered sequences. Six gigabytes compressed down to 20 mb. Not too shabby if I do say so myself. Man, I need to put them on CDs.

    The sound codec applies to your format. If you’re using Quicktime, IMA is usually preferred. If DivX, most likely MP4 as Brian stated. RealOne comes with its own, and is quite good.

    That’s a lot of disk space freed up.

    To archive Black Knight, I zipped the uncompressed files and then saved to DVD.

    BTW, my original file with no video or audio compression is 1,394,325 KB!

    Thank you everyone. I will use your advice to try and upgrade my films. :)
