I seem to have trouble getting my compositions to come out looking the same in swf format as in AE . I recently made an animation of 950px by 358 px , it looked perfect in AE , I rendered it off to QT .Mov format as I am aware there's no or minimal compression , then converted it using Wondershare video converter . the resolution size was exactly the same but the quality was poor ! what am I doing wrong ?
When rendering what are the best settings to have on a new composition .. hdv etc ? what's the best pixal ratio setting and how do I work it out to get optimal results for future projects or different sizes!
Im using AE 5.5 .. if this is any use , not had chance to got through any new feautures yet .. as was previously using Cs4 and was aware the export to Swf direct was poor ! Has this been improved at all ?
Thanks All for any help/advice you may have on something that litterally bugs the helll out of me . would lov to get it nailed once and for all !
Trying to go from video to SWF is rickety and is always problematic. What you want to do is render yourself an H264 compressed QuickTime using the Adobe media encoder. Host that remotely. Then use flash to call the remote video. If you're going interactive on your flash, then you need to explore other options.
Has this been improved at all ?
No. And with flash being declared mostly dead, you shouldn't expect anything on that end. Anyway, your failure is not in any way related to that. You simply do not understand compression and formats on a more generaic level and have quite a bit of reading up to do...
