Recompression in Raylight
Recompression in Raylight can be avoided by mainly cuts-only editing
either with AVI files, or with MXF files in the timeline together
with the "Supress Recompression" option. In this case only effects
and transitions are recompressed.
What are the losses on effects and transitions that undergo recompression?
Download this example, a 2-layer Photoshop file:
The recompressed frame has about 1% RMS added noise and is nearly
indistinguishable from the original frame. To get similar results,
use the Native Frame Size option in Raylight, and set up your
projects with native frame size:
960 x 720 1.333 Pixel Apsect Ratio
1280 x 1080, 1.5 PAR
1440 x 1080 1.333 PAR (50Hz system)
Also be sure you are in Raylight Blue when rendering. Use the
Red/Yellow/Green frame marker option to make sure you are rendering
