This great for editing and scratch table VJs may also enjoy playing around with it for this feature.
A fast machine will playback files in realtime, though as mentioned above live performance wasn't the original idea.
Those of you using formats like RAW to edit and/or store video files will find this codec a much more attractive solution as it makes much smaller files while basically retaining all of the quality.
If you set the quality to 100% you get lossless compression, just like encoding a still image in jpeg format at 100%, but it will still be a factor of 8 or better than uncompressed. At 90% you're looking at 15 to 1, while the image will still be fantastic.
The codec will auto-detect and use MMX, P2, P3, or P4 instructions if it can.
- The Midivid JPEG codec is Win98/2k compatible.
The codec encodes every frame as a keyframe so you can scrub back and forth without it ever choking.
