PPro w/ Cineform -> DivX for Stage6.... Lots of issues with DivX

Hey guys,

I installed the DivX codec and Dr. DivX today, trying to export some videos from PPro to Stage6, to show you guys a bit of my randomness work. :)

I tried exporting straight from PPro to DivX, and even at max quality settings I get lots of really nasty youtube-esque artifacting. Stage6 also gives an unknown error when I try to upload 'em. I couldn't find any setting that gives even reasonable quality, and I've seen some very nice work posted on there through this site....

I then tried exporting as Cineform HD->SD downconvert, Cineform HD, AVI Uncompressed... all of these give files unreadable by Dr. DivX. They follow the same thread as Stage6... "unknown error".

Any hints on a workflow that will simplify my life here? I'm using the community (free) version of the codec, PPro 2.0, AspectHD.

Thanks in advance,

Render in DivX, increase the bitrate to at least 3000kbps for SD video, use the Home Theater profile, render first a video .avi without any audio stream.

Then render a .mp3 of your audio.

Next, get VirtualDubMod, open your video only .avi

in Streams, click Stream list. add your .mp3 to the video.

Save your file. This should work.
I wait for the day cost-efficient global shutter 60fps capable CMOS sensors emerge for use on major manufacturers' cameras. (Sony, Canon, etc.) Rolling Shutters are a plague.
