Yeah, 132 megs for 8 minutes isnt the way to go if you want people to watch your movies.

Yeah.... Compression sucks. I don't know what the hell happened! I tried to compress it several times, but couldn't get any better. It's DivX goddamnit! Well, any suggestions? I thought that there's something wrong with sound, but when I cut it out completely, it changed FEW mb
Still I think that maybe it didn't actually cut this audio, or maybe it saved great-quality-silence
Any help welcome
Well, perhaps you're gonna remember this movie

Can that make quicktime files? Because you can use the sorenson 3 codec if it has it to compress. Try compressing the audio, in mp3 or ima 4:1

What settings are you using? Make sure to reduce the dimensions (to atleast 360x240), and set the quality to low. Also check the "key frame every" box.

Setting the quality to low for me made my video look terrible and all pixelly. I couldnt make out anything. I put it on medium.

I assume that 'best' MUST be so big?

Try DrDivX, for DivX codec or the latest windows media encoder for wmv9.

Yeah, yeah, I'll probably keep trying.....
Still, for those which downloaded and watched movie: how do you like it?

I've noticed that this movie is unrated. You're going to need to reduce your file size tremendously. Change the dimensions from 720x576 to 360x288, and the file size should go down to about 35 mb.

Perhaps you're right
I'm going to do this once I have some more time. Still, according to statistics some people downloaded it, so I assume they watched it?
I'm trying to reduce it nevertheless...

I have no idea what is going on!
I made a smaller version (half size), compressed with even newer version of DivX, and it has 91 MB
Can anyone help me by trying to compress it in better way? Any help welcome!

I downloaded it and it was ok..
Some of the parts left me a little confused because of continuity issues when switching camera angles. The lightsaber , also, did not stand out well against the green backdrop. The quality of the video was not as good as I hoped it would be...
