What is the Project Setting that you imported the bmps into?
err how do i check the settings?
if u mean the settings i define when i chose to save on import, well i left it kind of default
k i think i understand what u mean now...
the capture settings:
display format: frames
tile safe area H\V 20%
tile action area H\V 10%
default sequence: video - 3 tracks
video rendering - max bit depth unchecked
file format: video for windows
cinepak codec by radius
Optimize stills checked
Did you use a Project Preset when you started the Project?
Go to Project Settings
and no, there is a custom preset i made once,
no idea whats good in it or what i really changed there, but it worked in the past:
Editing mode: Desktop
Timebase: 29.97 fps
Frame size: 1024h 768v (1.000)
Frame rate: 29.97 frames/second
Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square Pixels (1.0)
Fields: Lower Field First
Sample rate: 48000 samples/second
Maximum Bit Depth: Off
Preview File Format: Video for Windows
Compressor: Cinepak Codec by Radius
Color depth: Millions of colors
Total video tracks: 3
Master track type: Stereo
Mono tracks: 0
Stereo tracks: 3
5.1 tracks: 0
Submix mono tracks: 0
Submix stereo tracks: 0
Submix 5.1 tracks: 0
I assume that matches the imported material
Aside from any hardware issue (because we do not know what you are running on...That Cinepak Codec maybe part of the issue. I dont think anyone rates it very highly these days.
Did the 24gb .avi play in Premiere?
i use Q6600 (quad)
1 terabyte HDD
GF 8800 GTX
overall i dont think the hardware should be a problem...
didnt check on the 24gb avi, deleted it when it didnt work, and it will take a long time to make another just to check...
if that default chosen compressor isnt good, can u suggest what i can use and under what settings?
thanks again for your help
What do you need to deliver and how is it be viewed?
How are you going to present the video? On DVD? Via the web? From a computer that's hooked up to a projector?
Regardless of how you intend to present the video, don't use Cinepak. It's incredibly lossy and, as you have discovered, has some playback limitations.
The proper choice of frame size, frame rate and codec are dependent on your intended delivery method.
Craig may have gotten his post in first, but mine had more information in it.
well, as a video format,
delivered on a CD \ USB disk on key as a single video file.
played in (probably 99%) windows media player,
and will be projected using a projector
Well I would suggest a Windows Media Format (wmv)
Customise the Video size (100% or 50% or 25%) Video Tab
Set a PAR (Video Tab)
Make sure you set an Audio Setting (Audio Tab)
Click the OUTPUT Tab above the Monitor to see what you are going to Export (May need to check the Adjust PAR button)
Lets see what Jeff suggests ... he is always a beat or two behind (slow typist)
>Lets see what Jeff suggests ...
Same thing - wmv.
Unless the projector prevents it, use 100% video size (1024x768). If the source video is square pixel then the PAR for export should be 1.0.
If the audio is speech-only, then you can get away with low bitrate mono and use the extra bits on the video (keeping in mind that the final file size must fit on either or both the CD and the USB stick).
His program is about 6 minutes I guess so space should not be a huge issue .
AVI : Dont forget to Set the Work Area bar and use that Option.
(You can do a little test on a shortened wotrk area bar first)
I dont want to sound foolish,
but in saying wmv u mean..? i mean, i know the format,
but the file type dropdown list has stuff like MS AVI
MS DV AVI
theres no windows media format option....(?)
and thanks again! for your help, both of u, you're great
**edit: found that option... rendering now...
BTW - The PAR View button is in the little twirl down - top left of the Monitor
