In Premiere No. If you're on Windows you can install Debug Mode Frame server. This will allow you to export a "dummy" avi file that you can then encode in a more flexible program like FFMPEG. This "du

Thanks Randy! Way much simpler than I what I did. I finally got to achieve a decent simulation using dynamics. I used a hinge to connect the bottom of the cards, and a motor to rotate the hole system.

Hi Carlos, Probably any encoding matrix will look fine at a high data rate. The advantage may be on low encode rates for long programs. I did a very long dance recital and had to encode at about 3.8 a
