I'm converting a Flash vector animation to an mp4 video for the web. After trying and failing with Swiffy, it's the only way I have of preserving the work "for posterity", once Flash is gone.
When exporting a FLA to MOV, the frame rate changes. For example, an 18 fps FLA comes out as 9.6 fps in the MOV (according to the QT player properties).
Because the animation is jittery, I used Handbrake to export the MOVs as h.264, with framerates of 24, 30 and 60. They look smoother. (I was surprised the time-length of the video doesn't change, I thought at higher framerates it'd speed up).
Anyway, an mp4 produced like this has the following properties (according to the QT player):
Format: H.264, 550 x 250, millions, AAC, Mono, 48 kHz
- FPS: 24.00
- File size: 7.41 MB
- Data rate: 202.25 kbit/sec
- Length: 00:05:07.09
My newbie question is: can anyway tell me, at a glance, whether those properties are within the normal range for a video that is meant to be served from a dedicated web server or CDN?
