Best 3dmax animation settings?
Im having a beast of a struggle and I am hoping for your help.
I am instructed to have a series of animation drafts finished by monday from 3dmax 2011. Ive spent all week on it and have gotten the average render time to 6 hours at 1000x563px.
Im currently using MJPEG at quality 1000 and although looking great it is a bit choppy (200mb file)
The video will be taken to clients pc on tuesday where it will be played on an unknown pc off our usb stick, which is where my worries start. My plan is to load a portable VLC onto the stick but i need a backup animation which will play decently and cleanly (preferably at the full res).
Im trying to avoid post processing as we have issues with licenses, time, resources you name it.
What is the best option here?? I want to maintain widescreen format, i want to maintain the 1000px quality, and render times (roughly) and I have 2 days to get to a version that is smoother and guaranteed to play!
Ive never fiddled with pixel aspect ratio but im concerned it will mess up my camera. Also, the other setting to export animation from max brought everything down to 720 and fuzzy, although being small and smooth and playing on WMP.
and, i have done my search so apologies if the answer to this is on here somewhere.
Any thoughts and help is very welcome! Thanks
