Quicktime Codec for FCP storage/use
on Mar 8, 2007 at 2:54:02 am

Hi all,

We are mainly a 3d facility with little experience in compression codecs etc. We currently store all our clips as quicktime compression - NONE. Needless to say, these files are *huge*.

I'd just like to know what everyone else does. I've read that storing source clips in the Animation codec (best quality) of quicktime is a viable alternative.

Comments?

Thanks.

Here is a great resource for Quicktime codecs albeit slightly out of date - http://codecs.onerivermedia.com/

If you need to archive your content as well as use in FCP I'd choose either Animation or PNG. If it's just for use in FCP and you are compositing it with video content then render to the same codec as the content you are mixing it with.

It's a London thing.
