Particle Illusions 3.0 (Best settings?)

Postby Master10k » Sat Jan 24, 2009 1:11 pm

I've been having problems with Particle Illusions because it tends to reduce the quality of the vids I edit. Currently I render my video footage to the following settings which are compatible with Particle Illusions:
- 424 x 240
- 29.970 (NTSC)
- DivX 6.8.5 Codec (2 Logical CPUs)

and I output it in Particle Illusions
- 424 x 240
- Uncompressed or DivX 6.8.5 Codec (2 Logical CPUs)

Can someone tell me if there're better settings I could use?

Okay thanks for the help and for those who want to use Particle Illusions could do the same thing I now do:
- Render video as 424 x 240 Uncompressed (if widescreen)
- Using VirtualDubMod, de-interlace (if necessary) and convert to Lagarith lossless codec
- Using Particle Illusions, convert back to Uncompressed
- Use video editor to sharpen the video

Here's just a preview of what I'm making http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvfpL6gk1iY

what is the point of using particle illusion just to create an uncompressed file?
