In terms of automatic compression, Vimeo handles it fine (and also gives the option for the user to make the originally compressed file available for download).

But the original file has to be of very high quality for the compressed version to come out looking good.

I’m sure that the good dev folks at Videohive could manage the same.

I understand the issue of making previews for the slowest computer, but there’s got to be a way. With Vimeo and Youtube it feels like the quality of the compression actually reflects massively on the quality of the content (or maybe it’s vice versa). Certainly, poor compression doesn’t do the perception of quality any favours.

IIRC HTML5 is capable of choosing the right video codec for OS / browser – and I was just checking out scalable video coding for h.264 on the web. (i.e. the quality automatically drops down to meet the needs of lower bandwidth users). Seems to exist.

I was just having a look at these interesting links…

HTML5 support score per browser

HTML5 codec support

scalable video encoding for h.264

Best solution i know of right there, explained perfectly.

You know what makes me realize more and more when i see humans use animals/nature to solve their problems?

We can take examples from animals and nature in every situation to solve life’s ’’problems’’. Literally everything nature does is good and everything humans have been doing is bad. It’s about time we change the way we think about things.

Thanks for opening this thread, it was a well needed one.

I must admit that the current way of re-compressing our work is totally counterproductive and only produces uglier video previews that maybe run faster on browsers but totally destroys the purpose of us preparing our file for desktop viewings and thus making less sales because most of the inexperienced buyers believe they will have that artifacting as well.

Why in the world would we perfect our compositions for browser/desktop/broadcast viewing if the current system is going to kill the whole process anyway, there is no way to be sure on how the preview is going to look so it’s just basically a waste of the author’s time.

Take a look at the following example on how silly this system actually works.

Like what Doru posted, on the left you see my prepared file, i re-rendered it multiple times in order to see no banding etc in the preview. I maybe threw a good 15-30 minutes of work in only that. Now look at the right side, this is what videohive does to my already optimized compressed video. It totally took my 15 minutes of work and drained it down the toilet so to say, because now you can see banding and pixels all dancing on the screen. While the original was perfect.

I know the original idea of the system is a good one, i am for automation in many regards to make things easier for the authors and the reviewers etc. I would like to see however a kind of buffer or something, maybe a script that checks if the current compression is small enough if so let it through – if not re-compress it.

This way the authors can learn from the process and perfect their video previews where in the end both parties will benefit most from it.

I think there should be a most wanted contest for the most weird and unique files. That would be interesting.

Great idea ! We had a ’’out of the box’’ contest a long time ago and it resulted in some spectacular submissions so i hope they will do another one in the near future.

I have to admit the marketing style presentations seem pretty hot right now, i might jump the wagon on this one.

ok, but don’t create a Photo in Tree project because me and Smudgethis we are working on this idea right now and after our templates will be approved then you will just have a duplicate of our projects in your hands and off course you can’t upload it anymore.

Just an advice so you don’t lose time on this,

no need to thank me.
Haha fine, i’ll just throw in more flares then and make sure they hang in plants instead, blaum it’s original.
Don’t forget Astronauts and cows.
Oh how can i forget! The key ingredients for every template :D

btw, there is a probability that I’m one of the minority of people who find CS6/CC slow… What do you say, felt?

If that’s the case i’m in that minority as well. CS6 and CC just feel very sluggish compared to older versions, and i’m talking slower even when i launch it with a fresh install without a single plugin + script VS an older AE version with dozens of plugins and scripts running.

Odd but sadly true in my case.
