    Tips and Techniques Talk

    So Paul, is this where we discuss the other thread on Tips and Techniques?
    Why, yes, it is!
    I'm glad you noticed.

    How about making it (the other thread) a sticky thread so it will stay at the top?

    Editors: Take advantage of 3D!!

    This is one I wanted to post elsewhere but here looks like a great place to put it.

    Editors, have you ever wanted to learn to harness the power of lw but didn't have the time? Then go and download all the avis, mpgs, and whathaveyou of a tutorial for lw. Then, play it back on your VT so you can watch on the external monitor and work on lwExpress!!
    Edit a bunch of them together and you have an hour a day to transform your projects!
    Shucks, this works with ANY programs tutes!

    RE: Tips and Techniques thread

    Awesome! I love how you can just jump to various "pages" within the thread.

    Paul, at some point it would be cool to organize the (future)gazillion tips and publish a PDF or maybe some kind of organized thing for quick T[2] user reference.

    Question Compressed RTV?

    Paul said

    You may be amazed at the compression available with an RTV since it is uncompressed. For example, a reasonably busy RTV from 260MB down to 135MB; CG output will compress even more - as much as 90%.

    Did I miss something?

    I thought RTV was always uncompressed?

    But not if youcompress them.

    Seriously, for archival purposes, they Zip up really nicely, though it does take time...

    Convieniently, the Toaster works with most codecs, and in fact, PicVideo M-JPEG is a prefered compression among many of us, including me. Great quality, great file size.

    Toaster let's you use whatever codec you like.

    Presuming, always, that your CPU can handle the compression and/or de-compression in realtime.

    I was referring to transporting RTV's around on a CD; you can zip rtv to about 60% it's original size with winzip.

    Yeah, we got that Paul - see my post about 4 above yours. The CPU qualification was in response to Eugene's comments about live encoding through a codec, not your Zip remark.
