When I saw the 'Final Fantasy VII' movies on the Play Station, I thought
there were the best
animations I've ever seen. The image quality was really good: full
screen, about 25-30 fps,
and high resolution and true color. Then I got the version for the PC.
The image was in true
color, about the same frame rate, but the image quality was very poor,
and in low resolution,
I supose 320x240 (4:3 aspect).
Then it came 'Resident Evil 2'. The same, god image, high resolution,
I have the PC version. Now it is in high resolution, but isn't in full
screen, is a type of
'cinemascope'. The image appears like if it was softened, like as we see
with a not good
enfoqued lentzs. The compression system was Indeo video 5+, and I was
On my pentium 120MHz the sound runs faster that the image, and the image
That makes me wonder something. What type of audio-video compression

Station? The animations have better quality because they are seen by the
TV(interlace, I supose),
or it is because the compression system is better than Indeo, Mpeg1,
Mpeg2 or whatever.
How can be so much video in a CD of 650Mb of capacity and with that
can explain me how the compression system is called? Is there any trial
version or shareware
encoder and decoder? Thanks.
