I have been working with a technology that allows me to create videos like this one [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view] (full screen) (once the movie starts, click and drag the image)
The movies are captured by our camera and delivered in .AVI format (m-jpeg codec). The source dimensions are 2400x1200, and the bit rate is 29000kbps
Up to this point is fine. video quality is great. but then we have to use final cut to edit the movie and after that we couldn't find a formula which has a decent performance/quality compared to the initial .avi. The final format I need is either h264 (mov), .flv, or .f4v
Usually we use two methods:
* first method: (recomended by the manufacture) after editing we export from final cut in avi and then encode again (avi) using virtual dub, resulting to another .avi. I then encode them using quicktime pro, compressor using the following parameters:
Video: h264 (mov)
size: 1200 x 600
bit rate: 5000 kbps
frame rate: 29.97
key frame: every 30 frames
audio: AAC, 128 kbps
result sample video: [url removed, login to view]
* second method: export from final cut straight to .mov using the same parameters above
sample result: [url removed, login to view]
The second method give me better results, however, at 5000 kbps is still to slow for web streaming (and still not as great as the avi original movie)
I am looking for a solution in which I could use flv or f4v and that would still carry good picture quality and would have a faster streaming...
anybody could help me figure this out?
note: the delivery formats must be flv, mov, or f4v. The audio must be mp3 or AAC (44100 Khz)
before contacting me:
I MUST see a sample of a video that you have encoded that is beautifully streamed in high quality. Upon proof that you have experience, I will provide you with an small sample for you to encode and show me you can do it. So I will then hire you. I am just trying to avoid the look-loos. This is serious and only intended for those that know what they are doing.
Second: I won't reply to you if I noticed that you didn't read my post. I took my time to explain to you what I need, I expect the same from you. I hate spam as much as you do.
looking forward to hear from you!
