uncompressed avi = horrible quality (cartoonish even!)
not exactly a specialist here. I'm trying to export an animated logo sequence with transparent background, but for some reason when I export as uncompressed avi, the resulting video is transparent but has the quality of a 4 or 8 bit video. When I export using the cinepro .mov option, the video is as it should be, good quality, but useless in most players since it is mov.
No matter what I do, uncompressed avi gives me the worst quality of all options. mp4 is not an option since it doesn't save alpha...
What is going on here? I have checked all added media, there are two png images added with 32bit rgba, both made into composite sequences with added effects, and there is a 'quick 3D' effect added (sci fi shockwave effect).
I checked each video track by adding a pink background, and all tracks are transparent in the project.
So it is all set up as should in the project. Exporting with uncompressed avi does give a transparent background but it seems to turn it into a 4-bit video. There is NO bit depth setting in the avi option, only a 'comment' saying it is 4:4:4 8-bit...
Pls help. All I want is a transparent logo animation in decent quality and a usable format.
