I would like to know what is the best file format and codec/compressor combination for use with PhotoWorks & SolidWorks Screen animations. I have XP 64 bit and SW2010 SP 2
I haven't found any of the included codecs to be any good.
I export uncompressed frames and then compress them with QuickTime Pro using H.264. Excellent quality and the video can be played on any computer with quicktime without having to download additional codecs. (or even on iphones!) In my opinion, one of the best codecs available.
