with respect to image size H x W, and to total size of the video file, and what type of video file what is the best method of taking a bunch of still images to a smooth playable video file that will work well in powerpoint for a briefing ?
- i have 720 .tiff files making up one rotation, every 1/2° but i can reduce to 180 stills
- on windows 7 use MakeDVI.exe to create an avi file
- there's Microsoft RLE, Intel iYUV, fully uncompressed; these create > GB file that does not play
- there's Microsoft Video 1 which seems to work most reliably creating > 100MB avi
- there's Cinepak codec by Radius
- also get to choose frames per second
- depending on the AVI compression used, may or may not play in windows media player in windows 7
- having trouble every which way getting avi to play smoothly when embedded in power point
- need to stay within powerpoint and windows media player for compatibility and portability between work environments (win 7/8/10)
Do I need to convert the 5MB each .tiff files (x720) to .jpg or something first, where each .jpg file is in KB size?
and with 720 frames @ 30fps = 24 seconds for 1 rotation, I would also like ability to play faster like 1 rotation in 3 seconds or slow down to 1 rotation in 24 seconds.
What video format should I end up going for to get smoothest playback within microsoft powerpoint and be reliably portable between displaying computers (has or does not have graphics card, etc.) ?
