encoding video using rainbow runner....
Posted on 1998-08-06
i am going to soon be buying a matrox mystique and rainbow runner. I have a PII 300mhz 64mb ram, and a second hardrive which is 800mb big.
I am interested in recording realvideo files, probably about 22minutes in length. However, to record them live from my video recorder needs a beast of a puter, i think i shall probably have to convert files into realvideo format.
will there be a great deal of quality loss in realvideo files from say .avi or .mov files, when playing them fullscreen? I mean comparred to playing back realvideo files recordeed live...
the rainbow runner comes with a mpeg1 encoder, but as far as
i know, u cant encode mpeg1 into realvideo...
but i mean i dont know this very well.
are there any cheap/free utilities for encoding .avi or .mov?
going back to my original question though, what are my options, how can i made a good quality 22min realvideo using the hardware i have?
