In Topic: Blender keyboard input

Thanks for the great post!

That's what I needed.

I assume it's my fault for assuming I could jump straight in the deep end with my knowledge of 3ds max.

 

Does blender have a transformation stack, where I can modify previous transforms? ex: Edit Vertex in object --> Scale --> Taper  --> Scale again. And then I want to undo(delete) the "edit  vertex" operation and replace it with something else.

Answer is simple, encoding is not an identical process across encoders.

Did you know that you can get Mp4 quality on DVDs that use Mp2 at simillar bit rates?

Did you know that studios spent days encoding those high Quaility DVDs?

 

The problem is that it is very complicated to do. It takes alot of time and heavy calculation to do it.

 

One of the things newer MP4 supports, are ways to make encoding simpler in real time. Even with a super-computer you would have a hard time encoding high quality MP2, but 4xHD MP4 can be done on a smartphone ( with some added H/W support).

 

So the important thing to realise is that while decoder profiles guarantee that your video will play (decode) on a certain type of device, encoding greatly defers, especially for different use cases...

 

Your recorder machine probably has both of the following constraints when encoding:

1. Real time - It has to record the video as it plays out (because it probably has very little ram)

2. Cheap hardware - The bill of materials is very important in devices such as these

 

Your PC on the other hand has no such constraints.

1. It can spend more time on certain chunks of the video (containing moving water or trees). There is no real time requirement.

2. It is massively overpowered. Usually has alot of advanced H/W support for encoding, and lots and lots of RAM. (not to mention a general purpose intel CPU)

 

As such even though both files use the same codec, I doubt they use the same encoder profile.

I love making music for games for fun.

 

More about me here... cjbmusic.co.uk

 

I did the music and sounds for https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.littleleds.kickitupsoccerbrazil on a similar GameDev project.

 

Have always wanted to make music for a VR game too.

Sounds good

Added prototype picture to give a better idea.
