View Full Version : Quality export

03 March 2002, 07:31 PM
Hi everybody.
I can export very quality movies from MAX 4.0 to avi. Then i import them to After Effects.No problem yet. I setup the export options. Cinepad Compressor - 640*480 - Quality %100.But evethough these i can not get quality images. Images look like %30 or %40 quality. What is the problem?

The problem is probably because you are recompressing a compressed avi. Try exporting uncompressed frames as tga's instead, then import the numbered sequence into After Effects. Then when you output from After Effects it should look much better.

make sure the footage you're working with is UNCOMPRESSED then when you want to finally render your movie with after effects if you want it compressed use Cinepak and use these values

Key frame every: 30 Frames
Data Rate: 1000 Kb/s

This should offer GREAT quality for filesize
i've been using this codec since forever
