A few days ago I saw a music video on tv and the compression was awful. Have people lost their skills in quality product or are they just too lazy? How can it get on tv if most channels require uncompressed video formats?

I edited a music video in the beginning of this year and when I first saw the size I was going to work with, it was 1.4GB. I thought, this can't be right. I got the people to phone the guy. I spoke to him and asked why is it 1.4GB? He said, "it was easier to send".

I looked at it again and it was compressed into MPEG-4 video format. I converted back into DVC-PRO but once it was compressed, death penalty. The quality cannot be undone. What a load of garbage. I can't work with this. This was something to go on MTV but I knew it was going to be rejected as they wanted uncompressed video formats. I finished the product and played it on tv. The quality was like a piece of art made from fresh garbage. It was so bad. He compressed it to death.


Any horror stories you have experienced?
