I think he means file size and thats been covered earlier, I think.
Revmen: Yeah, I meant as in how much file space? Like, how many megabytes does it (the final short) need to be compressed down to?
Addendum: GopedGuy: I just re-read the 7 previous parts of this 8-part thread and I don’t see file size anywhere. I know that back in the THAC contest file size was stated in the beginning as 3 megabytes per minute. Does something similar apply here?
I read the rules, but I didnt find anything.
In my film (not to give away things) I plan to have a chase consisting of a car and a chase. I was trying to think of easy ways to do it, I thought I could do it in 3d, I just wanted to make sure I can use 3d for 1 scene.

If you can render it to look like a normal brickfilm then you might get away with it, but apparently this is supposed to be specifcally stop-motion animation, not general animation…..
I would advise against using 3D.
Shale, have you finished your film and are you ready to compress it already? Unlike other contests, where there are a large number of voters who need to view every film, the only real judge here is Nadine and Charlie. So please keep your file size reasonable, but you won’t be disqualified for a large file. Of course, it can’t be guaranteed that your film will be seen if you have a large file, either.
Thanks for answering my question. Yes, I just finished my film. I did ‘System Reboot.’ I haven’t got time now but I’ll probably compress it into a ten, fifteen megabyte file tomorrow and submit it. Again, thanks! This is a cool contest through and through. – Shale out
Damn, now I have to figure out how I’m going to animate a decent car chase, or just rewrite that part
What file type? Quicktime, Realplayer, or Windows Media.
Just sent the email for my entry. Now all I need to do is sit back and wait for the deadline.
Littlebrick, I think you can just use whatever file-type you want. I used Real Media (compressed with RealAnime).
