    Exporting format for best quality/file size

    ian2003

      Hi,

       

      Help!!

       

      Nubie to after effects, pretty much got my head round most of the basics except exporting/rendering my projects.

       

      I can export to Encore and get great results as a dvd...problems i have are as follows.

       

      If I wish to create a presentation for a plama screen running on a laptop what might be the best format to render. For example I have tried .AVI but the file sizes are huge..gigs n gigs worth!!

       

      I have a 720 x 576 project I would currently like to export but do not know how to get the right balance of quality and file size.

       

      Are there any presets anyone knows of?

       

      Thanks!

       

      Regards

       

      Ian

          Well, if you are referring to plain desktop playback from a Windows-based laptop, nothing beats WMV. It will play smoothly and if you ramp up the data rates to somewhere between 2 and 3 Mbit/sec, you see almost no adisturbances at this resolution. You will need to work in square pixels, though, or it may look crooked, so nest all your work in a respective comp for final render.
