Export to video - Low quality?

Hi! I have made a tour with tourweaver.

We are supposed to show it for a lot of people on saturday.

The tour is in 1280 * 720px to fit our HD projector.

But when I try  to make a video from it the mpg file is on ~3mb. The whole projekt about 60mb. So how do i fix this quality problem?

Regards, Jon!

What is the problem? I have no idea from your statement.

Is your concern the size in MB?

Small size = low quality. Tried to use the MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 at 1280 * 720px. But the picture quality is to low to show for other poeple.

You are creating an .avi file from a panorama image. This image needs to be of a high resolution to start with. The file Tourweaver makes is what is displayed on your computer screen. If it looks crap there then the movie will also.

Be sure to match the screen display in your country NTSC vs PAL.

Once Tourweaver makes the (non compressed) .avi file use a program that allows you to choose the compression and output file such as MOVAVI Studio etc. The Codec you choose will have a HUGE bearing on the final outcome.

The pictures i use in the movie are about 6000 ' 3000px. Can use 12000 ' 6000 if nessasary. But how do i make the non compressed avi? I searched in the forum, tried the help file.
So have I missed someting? I only get low quality mpg files! =\

Thanks, Jon.

Hi,SubUria:

   When exporting video,I think you can you use DVD_PAL or DVD-NTSC mpeg format,which with the big dimensions.This can make the video clearer.

Hi!

I tried every possible combination. The overall quality is to low=\

But i solved it after 12 hours of testing several desktop screen recorders with different codecs and stuff. The winnning combination was TW + Hypercam2 + Xvid MPEG-4 codex, recorded at 90/fps. Had to do every scene 5 times longer to get the same speed. But damn it looks nice It's the same quality of the playback in TW=)
The only bad thing is the play control in the lower right corner!

A smart way, although with a little flaw!
