Thanks for that.
I am making 3D animations in Blender open source (free) software. While it
will output in a variety of video formats or as a series of stills and
while it will also import audio to use for syncing animation timing and
even for compositing multiple audio tracks, it won't (as yet) output a
combined audio/video file.
So, I've made the animation as stills (for quality and post-processing
purposes) and then composited these into a single video file (Quicktime).
Then I've taken this and combined it with the audio in HyperEngineAV and
output a single AV file. But it's 70Mb+ for one minute of video just
320x240 pixel dimension.
So, I have a file that is very playable and good quality but it's too
darned big to distribute. Most people seem to lean toward DivX or Xvid and
they get larger dimensioned videos of musch smaller file size with
reasonable to very good quality.
I would like to reduce my short animation to under 5Mb (or as close as
possible) - with audio - and with reasonable video quality. In theory,
the HyperEngine codecs should do this but they don't. No matter what
format, size or quality I choose, the file remains over 20Mb and sometimes
grows at lower quality settings.
As far as QT Pro goes, I need to know will it take a separate audio and
video file and composite them into a single AV file? Will it allow some
measure of versatility with regards to how the files are combined (can
they be moved around to adjust timing?) and will it output in a variety of
cross-platform formats including good quality, high compression codecs?
I'll check out the MPEGstreamclip and see where that leads me. Ta.
