I'm creating a project in Director that contains QT video. It
will be delivered in Shockwave format via the web. I've been told
to use the specs below, but I'm not happy with the playback
quality. It gets a bit chunky and pixelated. It's not even fast
moving content, either...
I see video all over the web (including Adobe's new home page

Premiere CS3 allow batching (in a way that doesn't require me to
write some convoluted script)?
What do you think of my compression settings? Is that the
reason for the quality degradation? I'm trying to appease a broad
range of user bandwidth with 1 video file --- perhaps that's the
