hi fellows!
ok i have a doubt about hd and quicktime, im working on a apple plataform, and im trying to export a 13 minutes and 32 sec. long film, the last time i did it was 80 gb, i did it in a quicktime format and animation codec, is there any codec less heavy and with no quality or definition loss ???

Thanks!!

H.264 or BluRay mpeg for final viewing- check out the presets in Adobe Media Encoder. But those will not be "lossless" (in the sense that there will be compression) just very good image quality for viewing.

Try using Quicktime's PNG codec -- not a PNG image sequence, but a Quicktime movie in the PNG codec. The file sizes are generally smaller. Both Animation and PNG are known as Intermediate Codecs: files made with them are intended to lose NO quality, and they are intended not for final use but in the next step in the production process.

You should understand that the terms "high image quality" and "small file size" are almost always mutually exclusive in AE.

If you work on a Mac, no. If you work on a Windows machine, try uncompressed AVI.
