Recording AVI with MilkShape 3D 1.6.0 or higher

written by Mete Ciragan, chUmbaLum sOft

Before you record

Before you record your AVI, load your model into MilkShape 3D and play the animation. The AVI recorder will record the AVI movie exactly as it looks in the viewport. So make sure the animation sequence fits into the viewport. You can disable the grid, disable the axis and enable the textured mode for nice visuals.

Last words

Ok, finally I want to show the benefits of video compression. If my test video is compressed using Full Frames (Uncompressed) then it becomes 20'837 kb and if I use DivX 5.0.2, 1-pass, 780kbps it becomes 200kb. This approximately 104 times smaller. If you want better quality, then increase the bitrate (higher than 780 kpbs).
