compression for non standard movie files
on Jun 20, 2008 at 4:28:45 am

Hi all

Is there anyone out there using a Mac and also authoring for non-standard frame sizes? it seems that the mpeg2 format has some limitations re frame size when exporting from compressor.

what i mean is that if i had a file that was 1000 x 3000 pixels and i try to export to mpeg2 through compressor, then compressor would alter the pixel dimensions to 720 x 576

is anyone using different software to accomplish this task, like cleaner or something i haven't heard of?

thanks
jamil

It's very unlikely that you'll find a transcoder that will work to non-standard resolutions like that, but you can give this a try -

Even if it does produce files to that resolution it's even more unlikely that you'll find anything that can play them back!

If you're producing files for OnlyView then I think you're going about it the wrong way. Onlyview tiles images and video together to produce the huge and odd sizes they project.

You should contact them to see exactly what they work with.
