Converting 32 bit to 16 bit color?

Hello,

I am trying to convert a .rm file to a .mpg1 - but I want to convert
the color depth from 32 bit to 16 bit. It is a cartoon - which might
use 256 colors at best. I figure this way it will be smaller and fit
on a vcd.

Does that make sense?

Any ideas how to do this?

Suggestions or comments.

Thanks,

Tmuld.

No.

The VCD format is fixed, so you have no control over color depth,
bitrate, etc.

As far as I know, MPEG-1 only supports 8-bit-per-component Y'CbCr color.

You may want to try converting the video to an animated GIF (!)
