I couldn't get it to show either. I ran it through my video converter software, converting it to QUICKTIME and then it worked.

Animation Video File Size

Post by Bob G » Thu Apr 05, 2012 7:23 am

Thanks to some excellent help from Jonbo on image importing, I've been able to complete my first animation video but I was pretty surprised by how large the file was. This is my first experience with creating and managing animation video files and I'd like a sanity check on what size to expect. QUESTION: Is the file size of about 700MB+ reasonable for the animation video describe below....I hope this description is sufficent.

1. Video type: AVI
2. Video duration: About 18 seconds
3. Animation: 1 Static Character made up of 1 bone layer and 4 image layers but not animated. 1 Dyamic charater structurally the same as the first but animated and following a follow path for all of the 18 seconds.
4. 3 image layers made visible on and off to create a blinking effect.
5. Audio: About 6 seconds of audio on one track.
NOTE: When I saved as an AVI file, I selected "interlaced" vs. "non-interlaced".

All help appreicated.
