I'm trying to render out my demo reel in a nice, clean quality and small file size. I'm using the DivX 5.1 codec.
I've seen some nice demo reels go through here looking quite clean. Most are ~2 minutes and are between 20 - 30 MB, with no sign of compression in the video at all.
However, when I render out my current work it looks absolutely horrible (codec is horribly visible, often concealing the image). I get good results using Indeo 5, but the file size is far too bloated to do me any good.
I've poked around in DivX settings, but that does me no good. I'd like to know what others use: default settings, or custom advanced settings?
Here's (http://www.creathcarter.com/site_media/mes/Reel-Test.avi) what I have so far. Not too tasty.
All input is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
