I'm wondering if this is really the right place to put it, but since it's relevant to QL, suppose this is good enough.
I'm back in the business of making another fragvideo, this time looking to do it properly.
I've been having some trouble settling on a format/codec for storing the source content ( the frags themselves ), so they can all be edited into the final product.
I'm familiar with video encoding etc, but the problem is thus:
* I want to be able to encode the material in a framerate higher than the master framerate to allow for slowmo, so that means either 50fps+ or preferably 60+, this is simple enough in and of itself. I could use lagarithm or huffyuv to store them in lossless avi, HD space isn't much of a problem, but my experiments doing this have pretty much been unworkable in Premiere, realtime rendering is absolutely shocking... ( and I have a decent CPU )
If I encode in MPEG or 264 realtime rendering is fine, but the FPS limits at 720p/1080p are a bit of a problem... of course, there are a heap of workarounds to all of these problems...
Basically, I just wanted to hear how other people get around these issues. What do other people encode the frags in? What format/codecs/bitrates etc.
Could be a useful thread for anyone seeking to learn too.
