Instead of using the DIVX codec, select “uncompress” everytime you export a video (except for the last of the last export)

a uncompress file is very huge (30s =1gig I think)

so once i have all of the clips that i want, and i add them together, then i export with divx? and it will be PERFECTLY clear?

and i am putting my clips together in adobe, so its ok that i just export uncompresed and them export them from adobe once im all finsished with them?

and u sure it will be MUCH nicer looking? and whats its the recommended resolution i should export on?

it depend, use the same resolution as they original ones. but for the web, 320×240 is ok

DIVX is hard too understand. you will need advice, but for now use uncompress

I don’t use aim and with uncompress, you don’t lose ANY quality, so it’s two things :
-You already compressed it but doesn’t remember

or

-Your cam (and/or) input port is too cheap to give good quality

Bob, if you don’t have AIM,
why do you have something entered into the AIM field on your profile.
Same goes for everything else…

And don’t listen to him, appearingthoughts,
compressing it with DIVx will not lose ANY quality at all.

well, it would lose quality if you choose a low bit rate

I love counterstrike. It’s like butta down my spine. First of all if you want a good movie, be sure to know how to use good lighting. Also, darken some scenes in post. Good sets are a must.

COMPRESSION = LOST OF QUALITY
UNCOMPRESS = NO LOST OF QUALITY

i think what mr gep diggady dogg means is NOTICABLE loss of quality. I don’t know much about divx to give my own oppinion, but if you are exporting at a very high bitrate, and don’t compress the video too many times while editing, it should stay fine, at least for web viewing.
Having said that, if your software can export footage as uncompressed, and your computer can handle it (hard drive space) it wouldn’t hurt.

MOV files give good results. If you have premiere or some other video editor, export as a MOV file and use the sorenson codec. Jay Silver’s ROTE is great quality and uses the sorenson codec and is in MOV format.

guys guys guys….this is a Counter STrike video….it has nothign to do with my camera….

when u play cs, u can record demos, which later u can open and watch and use a script to take screen shots….once lots of screen shots are taken for that clip, u use video mach to put the screen shots into a movie format, so u can watch it, tahts the problem where i get my low quality, once i compress them together to a movie, my quality lowers and its kind of blury….

so now, any recomendations?

and how do i work the lighting to help quality?
