I am getting some real poor out put from AE usind the Divx 5 codec

For example, I rendered out a five second avi which consists of just some effects. The output was 33 mb

I then converted to Divx with a converter and the file size came down to 700 kb but the movie was blury

I then rendered out of AE with Divx 5 directly and I got the same file size and the same bluryness. I used 1 - pass for the variable bitrate mode and 10,000 for the bitrate mode. I could not get the 2 pass setting to work

How can I get smaller file size while the quality remains high from out put of AE

Any help is appreciated

Duuuude...

Ok. Your best bet when working with AE is to render to uncompressed avi, and then do the final compression in VirtualDub (my recommendation, you can use any program you wish, makes no difference).

The real difference is in your DivX settings. It seems you've compressed with a very low bitrate. In any case, go the uncompressed way, and then do a dual pass compression. Also, if you've bought DivX Pro, I suggest you do not use its "psychovisual effects" because you don't want it blurring out your precious work.


cheers

I do have version 5 but I can not understand its interface and settings names

Maybe I should just go back to trusty old 3.1a

Can vDub open sequences

I can not figure out how to get good results in version 5 ... care to share
