there are three variables when saving a video format, size and frame rate and I am not sure which combination is best to use for website viewing.
Can anyone help?
It would be helpful to have guidelines explaining each of the options available and why you would choose them, with examples for those who have experience in design/learning/marketing but do not have experience in video production .
Is this information available anywhere?
Image Sequence (PNG)
Image sequence ( JPG)
1080 (Full HD)
360 (Web mobile \) (Okay that one is self evident!)
720 (standard HD)
We don't tend to offer advice here as it's very much a personal preference type of thing. Our defaults are set with some thought on what we feel would give a reasonable balance between file size, render time and video quality but you are well within your rights to disagree and make some changes.
WMV, MOV and AVI (we also have MP4 download through Sho.co) are 4 of the top 5 universal file types and can be read by most applications.
Image Sequences (PNG/JPG) are a sequence of pictures rather than a complete video and these are used in Video Editing Software to further change your video beyond the capabilities of VideoScribe
As you go up the spectrum the better then video will be but the larger the file therefore the longer it takes to download, more buffering and more storage. If your video is going to be played by people with a awesome internet connection on Retina Displays then the bigger the better. If you are targeting mobile customers or countries with a poor infrastructure then keep it low.
This is Frames per second. You'll get a smother and smoother video the higher you with less movement between frames but again again you sacrifice file size, download speed and buffering as a result
Thank you Barry for the response - most informative.
Recently i faced a couple of issues.
1. Last frame was missing in the video. Despite having appreciable pause time and setting the frame to the image.
Though it was sorted out after a couple of attempts and finally by changing the move-in direction of the image.
2. I converted the video (mov format, 640 Normal and 25 frames) , but the conversion seems to have some glitches. Text at many places appear distorted. (All the text box zoom-in was done keeping the aspect ratio in check.
3. I played the video (mov format) in windows media player, when i paused the player at any frame the video seems to slip through the transition time due to which i am unable to pause the video at the intended screen.
4. On videoscribe review player, after releasing the pause the preview video slips away very fast to makeup for the pause duration, this doesn't helps the reviewing.
Hope these issues will be sorted out.
