I am working on a project, where I made the client an Apple Animation file. The feedback I received was that the video needs to have constant bitrate, not variable. I have tried Media Encoder, Compressor, After Effects, and Quicktime player, and none of those give me the option to change the bitrate. I know you can change Bitrate VBR or CBR on an H.264, but I can't get that option on Animation.
Hi Jill, I am not an expert on this, however I believe it is variable due to the lossless compression and likely hood of adjacent same pixel values i.e. a bunch of white background can be represented differently than saying RGBA 255 for every single pixel. I've never heard of a constant bit rate animation file. Why did they want it?
This has probably come too late, I found the thread searching for something else.
