Hello everybody! I am new to Fractal Forum and still a messing around player with Mandelbulb.

Here is my problem, just done 2 animations and the size are enormous for the amount of time they are.

First animation is 30 sec in the size is 830 000 KB.
The other is about 1 min and it's 1.44 GB

Can you send me a screenshot of you're animation window so I can check your settings. I am looking for the optimal rendering setting for youtube quality video.

PS: I currently use BMP as output format, what do you guys suggest for youtube animations?

Come see my deviant art page (mostly apophisis work): http://greg700.deviantart.com/gallery/

output format png
if you really need the space, use jpg
after rendering use virtualdub for creating an avi/mpg/whatever with the codec of your liking

bmp just throws away space, because it is uncompressed
jpg is destructive
only png is compressing without modifiying the underlying data

An example from my limited experience

2600 png files @1280x720 = 3.55 GB

Doubled the frames in virtualdub (5200 frames @40 fps = 2:09 m:s) & output to uncompressed avi = 13.3 GB

Compressed with Handbrake to High Profile mp4 (H.264, Constant Frame Rate, Avg bitrate 50000) = 771 MB .mp4

1 .5 hour upload to YouTube which converted 771 MB to:
720p = 50.1 MB
480p = 19.9 MB
360p = 11.4 MB

Thx for your tips I'm gonna go check this virtual dub. I was using a free primitive bmp 2 avi converter.
