Hi Brendon,

I believe I remember reading somewhere that Per used the settings developed by Tony Davies-Patrick. If you search the XL2 forum under his name you should come up them.

Regards

Mick

Hi Per,

Pleased to have been of help. Had to go urgently otherwise I would have spent time looking it up myself. We have snow here on the south coast, had to go out to make the most of it, don't see it often!!

Regards

Mick

I'm a trip at the Western Coast of Norway and no snow here at the moment. Today I hopefully get some Raptors in my viewfinder!

Thank you Mick and Per Johan and Gilles and Tony D-P for the XL2 settings. It really is great to get this level of support.

I can see you chaps setting up a co-op. What am i talking about! ... sure you are the founding fathers of the UWOL co-op ... which reminds me I have not heard from mother for a while ... I guess she's up to her pectorals in challenging times ... good women are scarce; I wish her the best of everything and then some.

Now where's my xl2 manual?

And then days later I find that we are all indebted to the kaleidoscopic but unobtrusive Chris Hurd for digging up these presets in considerable detail in July 2005 ...

Compression settings

Hi

DV footage size before compression: 2.36 Go
in Imovie the motion is just a little bit slowed (little, arround 10%)
Imovie HD (the old Apple Imovie) settings:

MP4 (codec) H264
4096 Kbits/sec
Fq: 25, 2 pass
Diffusion: packet size 1024, packet lenght 100 msec
sound: 128 Kbps, Fq 44,100 Khz

Size: 210 Mo

Sorenson squeeze 5 settings:

Mpeg4 preset 1Mb
Sorenson 2 pass VBR
Data rate 1000 Kbps
Frame 1:1
filter: Sharpen
Amount 25%
Radius 4
sharpen edges only
edge detection 127
Gaussian noise reduction 10
Sound like the firts compression

Final size 20.3 Mb

I am not sure to use the best compression settings, Sorenson Squeeze 5 is really fantastic but a little bit expensive for an amator user like me.

May be anybody on the forum will give us better Sorenson settings ?

Next days i add Seals and Pinguins from Chile.

Regards

Gilles

Giles, I always enjoy your Nature videos. They are simple and just as you might see things in person. I have found that vultures make interesting subjects, as they are like people, in that they often fly just for fun. There's a butte near our town, where they go just to play on the updrafts. There's a video on my Vimeo album that I shot of them there in 1992. A high-definition one I made last Summer is here: http://www.vimeo.com/1998054 I will go back and look at more of yours as soon as I can.
