Usually, i'm rendering out the frames as 720x360 (720 means
it's not going to be re-scaled, just letterboxed when it
goes to DVD, which has 720x576 size).
I'm a mac guy, so this is a quicktime .mov file, with jpeg
at maximum quality. About 600 MB for 3:44. I export that to
DV stream AVI, and copy it over to my PC (haven't found a
well-working MPEG compressor for mac yet...).
I run that file through TMPEGenc (which has a very
unscrupulous setting of 320 kbits/sec for video + 32
kbit/sec mono audio) with an output size of 320x160). I try
to ignore the horrible compression artefacts :) and that's
Without a soundtrack, you may go to 360 kbit video for 9.99
MB at 3:44.
I've picked that time when i was using Astarte's M.Pack,
which had a lowest possible 360 kBit preset for that. Ah,
the days of MacOS 9... long gone, as is M.Pack.
