    Excellent comparison!! The H.264 clip is much clearer while being a quarter smaller in file size.

    Videos added,

    I'm currently experimenting with the fps among other things, and even while compressing 1 movie i can play another fault free with a 24fps movie at 640x480, even on my 800Mhz iMac

    Very impressed :cool:

    Apple's implementation of Mpeg-4 Level 2 is pretty crappy to begin with. It's hard to compare. But I agree, H.264 is da bomb.

    How are you compressing with H.264 may I ask?

    Using another application?

    I have QT Pro but on the Export H.264 is greyed out :(

    I am still personally a fan of DiVX (see picture, but H.264 appears to be better for High Definition)

    EDIT: WTF? The 12.4Meg is supposed to be the original and the 5.8Meg is supposed to be h.264. Oh well

    I'm opening a .dv file in quicktime pro,
    file - export

    export: movie to quicktime movie
    use: broardband - medium

    If you go into options you should see it has h.264 set :)

    ***___***

    as for the 12.4Meg... :confused: lol

    Thanks

    I've managed to do something via the Share option and am doing it that way

    The encoding is going like lightning of course :D

    but at least its possible :)

    yeah that's pretty amazing. actual HD size isn't of any use to me right now, but examples like this are very useful.

    and to me in the shot ChrisFromCanada posted, the background color in the H264 compression actually looks smoother than the 12Mb original. got to hand it to the MPEG people.
