CS5 and CS6 had File>export Movie and avi or mov and upon choosing e.g. mov one had control over compression, width and height, PAL NTSC codecs H264 or animate and so on.
I see none of this in the cc trial.
An .fla that CS5 made an mov of was 147Mb, exact same fla in cc and we get....2.7Gigabytes strewth !!!!!! ...just crazy An animation that runs for 12 secs is now useless under CC.
This 2.7Gb file runs slowly with objects hardly moving, and then crashes PC.
Just where are the settings as Adobe tech wont assist despite asking me to test CC to see if this resolves the png over png jerky movie export issues of CS5 and 6
File>export Movie doesnt even feature the avi and moc options, just jpg png and tiff, I never knew these were movies !
Then above this is Export Video, and in there just one choice mov.
Why the confusing options, are not mov movies ?
I simply wish to export my fla in the same way as in CS5 and CS6 and create an mov but where png moving over png doesnt have stutters. Hoping CC has fixed this fundamental flaw in Flash.
um..eh ?.......Its all about png xfg jpg and gif ?
I want a quicktime mov file or avi or quality mpeg2.
I see nothing in that article on how to choose mov and e.g. select settings at all. Its as if mov and avi have been dropped. I need to keep the pixel width and height of my video the same as the stage, I do not want HD, the only other video thing I see in that link. The videos are designed to run in powerpoint at that size and I need to keep the quality. File size must be suitable for a slide, not 2.7Gigabyte, which I bet was this option of export video and no settings available that we could see, so making it into HD !!!!! They only run for a few secs. Crazy size.
Whats happened between CS5 and CC to see the settings button vanish ?
I just need to know how to make an mov and where the settings are now accessed.
Some kind of printscreen or step by step please
You want video, so choose the Export Video option. As long as you have Quicktime installed, as you see it will export a MOV in full quality. You can't compress from this location, it already exports using Quicktime Animation Millions+ (lossless), which is why your file size is so large.
This is desirable.
I made a quick 60fps example of a ball animating linear around a square over 120 frames:
I used the Export Video to create the initial Animation Millions+ lossless output. Here Quicktime dutifully shows you the codec:
I'm fine with that so I export:
I checked to convert the video in Adobe Media Encoder just to illustrate that this is Adobe's next recommended step in most production cases. This is where you can compress your lossless file to any format if you want to reduce the size.
I myself use Sorenson Squeeze. The original file is over 7MB for the 120 frames @ 60FPS. I compressed it to MP4 H.264 for a file size of (hehe) around 170K:
No smoothness issues at all there.
To answer you however, yes, Flash compressing the video right out of the export panel is missing. It just exports lossless at stage size. You're honestly better off doing that, then taking your animation to a great compression app for the best quality. Flash never would have exported this video as clean to 170KB, never.
