What codec are you encoding the AVI with, that will affect the final quality of your AVI tremendously. And what's your intention to use the final footage for (for the web, out to an editing program for broadcast, just to view on your own PC)?

Hi

I'm new to this too but the general advice seems to be don't convert to avi (or your target format) until the very last moment. Render your animations as a series of TIFFs or some low loss still image file and work with them. This has several advantages:

1. Nice clear images all through your work flow.

2. The ability to always render 'down' to a suitable output quality even if your original target changes - remember, you can't render 'up'in quality!

3. Your PC may crash in a long render but you only need to pick up from the last good 'still' whereas an avi would have to be restarted and still present the same risk of failure.

4. You can edit individual images or even delete individual images!

I use Cinema 4D, PI and Premiere and they all handle/generate a sequential numbered series of images so while the avi is obvious the stills sequence is better. Animations made in cinema have PI effects added and then possibly some manipulation in Paint Shop before finally assembling the stills and sound track in Premiere Pro.

If you transfer between applications using avis you will soon find that image quality deteriorates as each program takes a compressed file and recompresses it then the next compresses again. The exception to this if you use a 'lossless' CODEC such as the (free!!) Lagarith one (works on 64 Bit too!!) The penalty is that the .avis are relatively Huge! and you only have to break them back into frames anyway.....

During your workflow you may wish to preview your work as an avi - no problem just do so and disregard the quality, look at the content. However use the stills for your formal output.

Hope that helps.

James
