Codecs for GL and jit.qt.record


    Jul 14 2007 | 4:57 pm
    I've been using DV codecs at varying quality to record some basic GL stuff, and they look absolutely awful... quality loss and extreme aliasing. Photo Jpeg codec on the other hand looks absolutely great. Why not use JPEG? It's a pain to use in Final Cut; however, it's starting to seem like less a pain than dealing with the DV stuff. I've searched the forum; it would be great if anyone could enlighten me on this.
    It didn't seem necessary, but I could put up an example patch if requested.
    Thanks, Keith

      i would just recommend recording using animation codec, and than you can convert to dv if need be. you can also set finalcut sequence settings to use animation so that it doesn't have to re-render the footage.

      I might also try the Apple Intermediate Codec. I've used it with iShowU and it has good quality and data throughput although I creates large files because of its uncompressed nature.
