Thank you so much for the reply! I love your guide for Mac! It is the only reason I have come as far as I have and as I said the quality on my uncompressed video is awesome! Thanks!
I still can't make an uncompressed AVI from Final Cut. It always only compresses half the video and says it's finished. Upon playback, only the fist half of the video is there and VLC and AviSynth say the file is corrupted. So I made an uncompressed Mov through final cut, put it into SimpleMovieX and exported as an AVI. Whew! Then I just made a HuffYUV and it does look great, but it is still too large to send via FTP to the convention, so I am going to email the coordinator to see if it is ok to send a file that big on DVD to the contest. They say in the rules that they prefer MPEG2 compression though. I can do that using TMPEGenc. So thanks to you I seem to be all set! Thanks so much! One final question. Do you have any idea why TMPEGenc makes the video playback the wrong shape every time? I am checking to make sure that my size is correct at 720X480 and it is, but when the Mpeg2 plays back it is actually shaped 720X540. Thanks for all your help!!!!
