Just a simple one using panorama scenario preset. Bit of a pig getting camera to centre but that's down to inexperience.

Thats nice.  :)

How many frames and how long did it take to render?
Did you output at that resolution or resize it?

Regards,

Paul.

Paul, thanks for the compliment.
I was looking for slow motion & high detail so settled on the following settings:

Frame format: 800x450 BMP (same as 16:9 widescreen)
Movie format: 800x450 AVI,
Frames/sec: 25 (per PAL standard)
No of Frames: 360

I deliberately wanted an uncompressed AVI, and output file was 380MB. MediaPlayer struggles with the high bitrate but at least you're guaranteed no artifacts in your new source file.

I prefer other software for video compression, and for the animation posted used the following:
Format: MP4 (AVC/H264)
Bitrate: 512kb/sec
Frame size: I thought it was same 800x450, but reopening it, the defaults are 480x272  so...?

Obviously, compressing a file 380:1 you'd expect some degradation but I'm pleasantly surprised at the result - to my eyes I'd assume the final file is 1/4 the quality of the source.

Oh...and it took about 2½ hours to render, and 11secs to convert

If your Windows Media Player won’t handle it there is a free down load able Video player available at http://www.videolan.org/  that should suffice nicely to aid in your video needs.

Hi Marc, did you try with Windows Media Player? MP4s should play just fine without needing other software. Alternatively, open it with Quicktime Player if you have it.
