Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Outputting for archiving, part of After Effects Apprentice 15: Creating a Sports Opening Title.
Now we've created several different output modules depending on the different scenarios.…One, say that you want an archived absolute best quality of your final render.…A lot of people argue over their favorite codecs, but one approach that a lot of…people like is to use a ping, or PNG sequence.…I'll open up that Module, Format > PNG Sequence.…Since we did render at 16-bits per channel, you can set the color depth…to Trillions of Color.…Millions of Color is just 8-bit color depth, Trillions is 16-bit.…
The QuickTime animation codec is restricted to 8-bit color.…That's why people like to use PNG. It's a lossless option that can save 16-bits.…There are other choices high-end shots particularly like OpenEXR Sequences, but…PNGs are something that are pretty universal; otherwise, for our master that…we're going to archive, we're not doing any resizing or any cropping.…I'll cancel just to make sure I don't accidentally make changes.…
