stand alone video presentation

Nov 18, 2011 10:31 AM

I am working on a standalone video presentation, will play directely from PC. So no worries about streaming or file size.

 

Right now i am using WMV9 with unconstrained bitrate, decoder on auto, avg bitrate maxed out at 10,000

 

I am still getting some compression artifacts on playback, even when using clean hi res tif files (no jpgs)

 

Any tips on getting the best quality from PP5.5 ?

 

thanks,

dr

    Try creating a lossless AVI file using the Lagarith or UT codecs.  Both are free and work fine with PP.  Both are lossless so will not degrade the image at all.

     

    The files will be larger, but you said that wasn't a concern.

    is there something in between uncompressed and something like WMV9?

     

    Yes.  Lagarith and UT.  (Use the YUV420 modes to save even more space.)

    Is this going to be on one computer, or will it be sent out to others?

     

    The only limitation with Lagarith, or UT, will be that the CODEC's will need to be installed on each computer, but they ARE free. With one computer, it's not an issue, as the installer to Encode, will also include the Decode too.

     

    Good luck,

    Great, as that certainly makes the delivery much, much easier. Thanks for that clarification.

     

    With that scheme, you can use the best "lossless" CODEC, and only need to have it on that one, dedicated machine.

     

    Both Lagarith and UT get high marks. Some users like one vs the other, and that is probably based on the exact Source Footage, they are working with. As both are free, do not hesitate to try each with your Footage, and pick the one that you like best.

     

    Good luck,

    Insufficient disk setup?

    300k kbs equates to 300 Mbps. (k k = M). 300 Mbps = 37.5 MBps and that ought to be enough for normal 7200 SATA disks. It might help if you describe your system in more detail.

    Any ideas why the playback is not smooth.

     

    Using what software?

    OK.

     

    Aas a test, try another player.  I recommend KM Player.  If it runs smooth here, you know the software is the issue.  If not, you know something else is wrong and you can trace it down.
