Basically im importing it to flash, so i can put some text and stuff overtop of the movie (make it look like CNN, with the stock ticker at the bottom).
Should i convert the DivX to soemthing else, then import it? What program do i use?
BTW, ill be converting it on to VHS afterwards for class presentation. Right now, its 640x480, 8 minutes, 86 mb.
Flash will be poor quality even MX. I have really not gotten into the AVI capabilities yet.
Flash crashes when i import the latter 2.
Once all is done, i need to export it as VCD, then record it from my DVD player to my VCR....
So now i need to rip the whole audio track from my AVI (or WMV). Any suggestions on programs?
because, definitely, if your final product will be a video, you should convert the .swf to video, and not all the video to .swf.
i haven’t had any experience with video, but i think what i said is possible.
its not just one big square picture on top of a movie :(
Right now, i have a WMV file in flash, but the 44mb file is making the .FLA file be 300 mb! My computer almost crashes everytime it loads it up!
I have to find a way to convert my DivX original file to a smaller AVI file, then import that into flash.
BTW, you know when you export something as AVI, it gives you big long list of codecs to use? Can they all still be turned into VCD? BEcause my friend said DiVX cant go on VCD.
I want to convert my DivX into an AVI or MPEG, but know what the output size is first, before waiting an hour, and finding out its 700mb.
Me DivX is in good quality 640x480 right now, 8 minutes @ 80mb.
Ill be inporting the compressed video into flash after.
Do a Google search for "uncompress Divx", you will find some articles that may be helpful. (and suggested programs for stripping out the sound track).
File size, usually you will want to work with uncompressed avi or mov, or dv. if you are going to import into flash, or play around in after effects, etc. 700 - 900mb sounds small for an 8 min uncompressed video, about right for dv stream. Big fast hard drives, a fast processor or two, and 500mb+ ram are helpful to work with video. A firewire card and a DV camcorder is also nice, but gather that you are on a budget :)
I would suggest doing a short (say 20 second) test all the way through the process, and when that works, look at the whole thing.
