A Word about the Quality
Studio 1 Productions only offers Professional Quality Motion Graphics and Video Backgrounds. Our animation are QuickTime Photo-JPEG at 100% quality. So you will have the highest quality backgrounds. They are a true 29.97 fps for proper playback on your timeline.
Why is that important?
Other companies may offer their animations as QuickTime, but they are using the h.264 or .mp4 compressor. While h.264 and .mp4 are fine for a final delivery product, they are NOT good for video editing of video backgrounds and motion graphics, as they are a highly compressed format. So when you render out your final video, you will be compressing the background again, which can lead to artifacts in the motion graphic.
So this is why we use the QuickTime Photo-JPEG at 100% quality setting.
In addition, some companies provide the backgrounds at 30fps, which can cause some problems, depending on your editing software.
Since our video backgrounds and motion graphics are at a true 29.97 fps, you will NOT have any problems with our products.
So why do other companies use h.264 and .mp4 formats with their backgrounds?
It’s simple, by using these formats (h.264 and .mp4) they can create a very small file size. By keeping the file size small, it makes it easier for them to upload and host on their website, as most website hosting companies will only offer you a limited amount of storage space for you website and all of the files.
File Size Difference between h.264 and QuickTime Photo-JPEG.
Here is an example of how much compression is done. Using the same 10 second motion graphic you can see a huge difference in the file size.
10 Second Motion Graphic as a
QuickTime h.264/.mp4 – File size 31,364k
QuickTime Photo-JPEG 100%A – File size 194,488
The QuickTime Photo-JPEG at 100% quality setting, is 6.2x larger than the QuickTime h.264/.mp4 file size.
So as you can see, there is a LOT of file compression going on with the h.264/.mp4 format, which means there is some quality loss with those formats.
