Today's Tip: How To Select Video Compressor ACASystems Logo
ACA Screen Recorder The Video Compressor select box on AVI File panel allows you to select the CODEC, which is the program that will compress your pictures to make AVI files smaller and enable them to play faster. We recommend the Auto Select setting, which will select MS RLE compression for 8 bit color mode, MS Video 1 compression for all higher color modes, and no compression for 4 bit color. Please note that if you want to record AVI files in True Color mode (24 or 32 bit), the default MS Video 1 compressor will still write them as 16 color bitmaps, losing some of the color resolution. You may try the "Full Frames (Uncompressed)" selection to actually record 24 bit bitmaps, or experiment with some other video compressors that are installed on your system. For recording in 16 bits per pixel (65536 colors mode), you could try using Intel Indeo Video codec in "Quick Compress" mode, which will be about 10-20% faster in compressing, than MS Video 1, the "Auto-Select" choice of ACA Screen Recorder.
