In my vocabulary someone claiming to be an:
Excellent editor as well.
would know his basics.
What delivery format from what source using which codec do you need?
I am fowarding your response to my web designer. Thank yor for you quick response.
FYI . . . video editing and encoding clips and webdesign are two different specialities. One is creative and the other is technical. Technical - I am not. Creative - I remain excellent. Rethink your vocabulary - you must be technical. That's why I reached out to the forum. For the "excellent" technical people out there.
Thing is, a clip is no use if your target audience can't PLAY it on their computer
Today, as far as I know, FLASH is pretty much universal - or, maybe, MPEG-1
I have not done this, but I think PPro3 will export as FLV... but I think that then needs to go through another program to create a playable flash file
Ask your web designer about Flash
I'm not doubting your creativity, you are probably miles ahead of me, but an editor should know what and how he can deliver what he has created. The creative mind does not need to know what format is needed for webdesign, but at least know about things like Flash, WMV, and other formats, as well as resolution and framerates.
"Creative minds always have been known to survive any kind of bad training"
My designer said that I don't need to worry about the codec because he is coverting to flash. But the footage I have in my timeline is AVI footage if that helps. I have avi footage that I edit in Adobe PrePro. Then I go to export / media encoder . . . then select FORMAT: quicktime. Under PRESET I don't know which to choose. Or what I should input in basic video settings. My designer is saying that the resolution is too low.
AVI does not mean anything. It is just a container that contains some material, like any 20' container can contain PC's, or chewing gum, or old shoes, or whatever. It is about the contents of that container.
Depending on the contents of your AVI container (check that with GSpot) your best bet may be to export to Flash directly in the resolution required, using AME. Forget about QuickTime.
You need to tell us more about your source material, sequence settings and Flash requirements.
video editing and encoding clips and webdesign are two different specialities.
I'll give you the web design, but in todays environment, editing and encoding pretty much go hand in hand. One needs to be both technically proficient as well as artistically inclined.
To answer the original question, I se a program called V2F. Makes good quality web video very easy.
geeeezzzz. Give me a break. I am now in the learning process of becoming technically inclined. I used to just pay people to do that for me. But in these times I have to learn the technical side now. That is why I have to ask all these questions that must seem silly to those with great knowledge. Just think.... once I get it -- I'll know it. But until then.... I JUST NEED TO SAVE A 1 MINUTE CLIP FOR MY DESIGNER . . . IN A FORMAT THAT IS DECENT RESOLUTION AND PLAYS NORMAL . . . from Premeire Pro.
Thanks for the insight to V2F. That looks very hopeful. I'll pass it along....... thank you.
