Hi I just watched Internet Killed the Video Star. So now I'm pretty jacked up on compression :)
I tried compressing an avi with using Sorenson. I converted it to a flv with the VP6_Lg_prog preset. I tweaked the settings - increased the data rate and decreased key every frame. checked compressed alpha since I'll be compositing this movie in Flash with other elements. I set the frame size to the original size of the avi.
1. I import the flv file into flash as an embedded swf.
2. I Test Movie and it looks great, although strangely larger its original dimensions.
3. When I open the swf directly from windows explorer, the
swf shows smaller than it's original dimensions and has the tell-tale distorted look of a movie file that has been resized in Flash.
