These days I'm relying a lot on apples mpeg4 because it is quite good, but also because it is ISMA compliant and helps get round some of the standards wars that could threaten videoblogging. also makes it trivial to pump out material for a mobile phone, a streaming server, and for progressive as they are all mpeg4 standards and all available within quicktime pro. i used to use Cleaner all the time. but it is expensive and apart from some fancier stuff i like the production flow: shoot, capture, export, publish. less tools in there the better. cheers Adrian Miles ................................................................. hypertext.rmit || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/adrian interactive networked video || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog research blog || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/
