Video Editing Round 3 – InterWise Strikes Back

November 19, 2007

I just finished testing my CodeRage II presentation – or testing it as best I could, since InterWise doesn’t work with a Mac.

But somebody else on the training chat (Bob Swart, aka “Dr. Bob“) helpfully took a screenshot so I could see what he meant by “funny colors” in the video:

Mangled Video from InterWise

Nice, huh? Best I can tell is that InterWise is down-sampling the video from 1000s of colors (16 bit) to 256 colors (8-bit indexed), and that conversion isn’t working as well as it ought to. Bummer. But at least it’s still legible, and the audio seems fine. So no ugly editing required.
