To export to .mov format from Animate, how do I get the best sound quality?
The file I am exporting has streaming audio narration that is 22kHz Mono 16 bit, which sounds fine in the swf. When I export to .mov the sound quality is bad. I have tried every setting in the Publish dialog that pertains to sound quality and none sound as good as it does in the swf. If I set it to MP3, 64 kbps, mono, the sound is tinny, if I choose Raw 22khz, mono, the sound is better, but there's a clicking noise not in the original; Speech 22 kHz, mono has an echo-y quality to it.
The export video help page (Export Video with Animate) looks like it hasn't been updated for Animate, because the instructions tell you to go here: Select File > Export > Export Movie which only exports to swf in Animate. It also says there is a QuickTime Settings option that opens the advanced QuickTime settings dialog box. Is there such a thing in Animate? If so, can you tell me where to find it, and what settings to use?
Thanks for your help.
Set both Stream and Event audio to 44.1 KHz, 16 bit stereo RAW. Also, do the animation in an AS3 FLA, not Canvas, and use imported lossless WAVs instead of MP3. No amount of quality settings will rescue the sound if you imported low quality MP3.
Thanks for your help Colin!
