Exporting from AE
on Sep 30, 2010 at 8:54:14 am

Hi Guys

Hope you can help!!

I've been asked by a client to supply him with a copy of his video project in 4:3 as they want to display the video on a 4:3 screen from a laptop projection. He has also asked me to supply him with the video in a .mov format as this is what his laptop plays best.

I've dropped my video (uncompressed avi) into a 4:3 ratio comp and exported using the animaton export settings and it plays fine but is coming out at over 700mb (3 min video).

Is there any way of using a different codec that will compress the video but still retain the quality as I need to be able to email over the final video to him.

Thanks in advance

Jamie

First thing....

DON'T EXPORT UNLESS YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE!
RENDER USING THE AE RENDER QUEUE!


Now: use your Animation-codec file in a proper compression application to create a quicktime movie in mp4 or h.264. Adobe Media Encoder will do the trick. It should p[lay back smoothly on the client's machine. Check the file on something really crude, like a laptop, before you send it.
