I've got 14 PNG images (here but not important) that I want to put into a 2 minute loop at 15 fps.
Photoshop CS3 seemed the best tool for this so I opened them as an image sequence* and did File -> Export -> Render Video and exported as an AVI.
However I only had 14 images so I used a script (here but not important) to duplicate them as 1805 images (approx. 2 minutes of video).
When I repeated the Photoshop steps, the resulting file size was 55 MB as opposed to the original 429 KB.
All the video actually needs is the first 14 files to link to and then repeat (lossless).
What codec can I use which will do this? How do I use that codec? (I'm on OS X Lion).
I need it as a video, not a GIF.
*(Open -> first file -> tick image sequence)
