Hi, I'm making an animation. I exported the walkthrough at 3336 x1592 pixel quality (which is 300 presentation quality in revit). I used WMM (windows movie maker) to edit it (which im going to try to download virtualdub or something else). The problem I'm having is the the movie is blurry. I want a high res movie. Should I try exporting the walkthrough at 1920x916 I think which is the default revit exporting option and as try a different movie editing software, in order to achevie a high res animation? O yes, I also only exported about 65 pictures at 15 pictures (frames) per second making the movie only about 10 seconds long (I plan to make a longer movie but it took about 15 hours to render only 65 frames becuase of the pixilation quality. So my question is, 1) what is a good exporting pixalation ratio, 2) what is a real good editing software, 3) how many frames should i export to achieve a smooth movie. Thank you all

I rendered 800 frames at 300dpi no compression, it took my computer 55 hours. My video was an aerial fly-by of an entire community so 300dpi was great for that.The file ended up being corrupted, i used Virtual Dub and it was fixed.

We use Ulead Videostudio at work and it's really good. There is also PowerDirector and Pinniacle Studio which are also good.

For a good frame rate read this

Rendering the video as individual pictures (.jpeg) is a good idea, that way you never lose any frames if your computer crashes.  Just have another program stitch them together, I know 3Ds max can do this as well.  Also, if you change anything you will only have to re-render those frames.  For instance, if you change something in a room, you will only have to re-render the frames in that room then re-stitch the video.  Also, one of the biggest advantages is if you have multiple computers you can have one computer render the first half of the frames and the other computer the other half and then stitch.  It cuts your render time in half!

It seems that if you use Windows Movie Maker, its not very forgiving of irregular aspect ratios. One such example: we have a walkthrough at 800 W x 1500 H. WMM imported it at a 4:3 ratio.
