Bit rates and picture montages: how low can you go?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread
I created a video montage of digital pictures and music. I then converted this AVI file to MPEG-1 (with TMPGenc beta 12a) using various bit rates. I discovered that any bit rate lower than about 400 produced pixelated or smudgy images.
If the image isn't changing (no fades, no movement) shouldn't MPEG-1 be able to reproduce it perfectly even at low bit rates?
