A Part of FFIX: New file extension

Postby SQ » Tue Nov 26, 2002 11:03 pm

Yes, my beloved FFIX AMV character profile of Kuja is now in AVI format!
However, it is a whopping 809 MB!! EIGHT HUNDRED AND NINE! Good GOD! The file size is too large for me to host it, so if anyone wants to, be my guest. However, if you want this version, contact me by the handy dandy buttons below this post, and I'll get it to you in some way, shape, or form.

HOWEVER, I recommend you just get RealPlayer 8(or higher) and watch my FFIX AMV, because the AVI and RM video quality is almost the same. In AVI, the motion just looks "smoother". The aduio quality, however, in the AVI format, is WORSE than the RM format. It sounds as if the song is being played from far away. So, anyway, here's the second chance to see my first and best AMV created. Use the handy dandy buttons below my post to access my profile for "A Part of FFIX" and download the RealmMedia version which is only 15 MB, or contact me for hosting/access to/for my AVI format of my AMV, of 809 MB.

Enjoy whichever you choose.

Pssst. It's not really trademarked.

809MB./... you did encode your avi file didn't you?

809 MB... that's big alright... but it sounds like you've only exported your video from whatever editing program you're using and haven't encoded it to distribute on the net. Try doing that [encoding it] and you'll end up with a smaller size video to deal with.

I originally had it encoded as an RM format, and then after awhile deleted the timeline I had, so I couldn't encode it anymore(Or maybe I'm stupid, and I still can?). I converted my RM file to an AVI format, so more people would be willing/want to watch it. I'm really really happy about my video, and am disappointed that just because it's in RM format, so many people won't watch it. . .

that is why your audio is so bad in the AVI format file. You basically Compressed it twice if you used mp3 for encoding. not a good thing.

also you get waht you put in. so basiacally you just made a big ass RM quality file with worse audio than before.

I used a .wav format of the song, and the quality, audio-wise, came out better then it was originally in the rm format. So I don't really understand what went wrong in the conversion. . . >< However, this should be in the video help section of the forum, now, shouldn't it? ><
