    Dose SWF lose any quality

    shery gemy

      Hi All,

      working in animation project to be broadcasted on a TV channel as HD1080 50i,

      1- all the animation layers was rendered from TOONBOOM as .SWF to keep it in vector for compositing issue.

      • Dose SWF lose any quality? we always use TGA sequence with alpha in our past SD projects but now we found SWF is a smaller file size and allows zooming Because it keeps all vector lines.

      many thanks,

          Flash allows to tinker with the Quality output and to activate Deblocking and Compression Algorithm, but it is definitively no lossless format. Don`t know anything about the export options of toonboom. Also: when scaling vector based content there are 4 different settings for outlines that can get messy to handle when imported in other programms, so it comes with caveats.
