Converting 32 bit to 16 bit color?

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Tavish Muldoon, Sep 17, 2003.

  1. 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.

    I am trying to convert a .rm file to a .mpg1 - but I want to convert
    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 (!)
