Subject: RE: FLASH: Converting Flash Files to Video Tape (Beta SP)

i suspect that when flash exports the QT that it is using some form of
compression, which is why your sorenson export from premiere looks crappy -
it's being recompressed. you might consider exporting a series of bitmaps
(picts on a mac) rather than QT from flash, importing them in sequence into
premiere. if you have video output on the mac you could even just output to
video and forget the vendor. if not, go ahead & render your QT from premiere
using sorenson.

We use both PC and Mac. However the file was originally created on Mac and
so it would be easier to work with that (You know how the fonts screw up
when you switch platforms). On the Mac you can choose the codec for sound
compression, but as you noted below, there does not appear to be a choice in
Flash for video compression that why there is in Adobe Premier.

I have called my Film house and they are looking for a an AVID Codec that I
can use on the Mac.

Thanks

Bill

are we talking pc or mac here? when i export a quiktime from flash on a pc
i am given no choice of codecs. maybe that is the real problem. also, for
webvideo/quicktime/mac sorenson is far & away the codec of choice. which
codec do you prefer then?

Sorenson... Yechhc...ptui...


YES they can import the file, just ask them to send you the avid codek and
drop it in your system folder. Next time you export from flash use that
codek for the compression.

How long (in seconds) is the file? That may limit you as to how you should
do this, but with that info I can help you out a bit...
