Lossless AVI - Plays in windows media player - Does not Preview in APV Animation codec .mov - Does not work in either PNG.mov - Does not work in either photojpg.mov - Plays in windows media player - Does not Preview in APV
Cineform highest quality did work but I don't have that codec where I need it. And it is not lossless.
Why do you want to use AVI.. They are really restricted in who can view them.. I use a Mac so I cannot view them.. I also have a Samsung Note which cannot view them and anyone with an iPad cannot view them.. I would suggest mobile phones could not view them either since the file size would be way too big..
You are far better off using MP4, OGG or WEBM.. You can use a streaming player to use add all three where the device detects the best format...
If you need to use png images, I am assuming you have the sequence of images, you can create a keyframe movie from them.. I often do this for high quality movies... Do not worry about lossy too much since if you use a streaming video player, you can keep to a high optimisation reducing lossy mostly totally..
Turns out not too bad. I can use the lagarith codec to work with lossless video. APV displays it incorrectly (when using GPU) but is is still perfectly useable for stitching. After rendering I need to swap the red and blue channels to get the color fixed....or I guess I could pre switch the channels before importing to APV.
Ok bad news on this and I am getting very frustrated.
I really need to use an uncompressed codec for my workflow but APVpro really doesn't handle them at all. Or to be more specific...it does not handle them with GPU processing. If I use CPU everything is correct. Of course this is much slower and the reason I paid for the Giga and Pro were for GPU acceleration on my nvidia Titan Black.
I decided last night to try H264 at the highest settings (300 mbps) as I thought APV was happier with H264 but again in GPU mode it screws up the rendering of the videos. Huge distortions and color weirdness that are not present when I use CPU only.
Does APV really only handle lower data rate movies on GPU? Very disappointing.
