When preparing media for your next live show, you've no doubt encountered some files that stutter or lag behind the music in your software. This frustrating issue comes down to video codecs - the algorithms that compress file sizes.
But why does this happen?
Heavily compressed codecs like H.264, while convenient for online sharing, can cause frames to drop when playback demands increase. And as a VJ, nothing pulls focus from your visual art like technical hitches.
Luckily, high-quality alternatives exist. Resolume users have two top options: MOV files encoded with Apple ProRes or the Resolume-native DXV codec. Both deliver buttery-smooth playback, with DXV excelling for intensive mixes. ProRes better preserves visual fidelity.
Of course, asset files at this level require serious storage. But the rewards are well worth the investment - audiences fully immersed in your artistic vision.
How to convert?
Converting your library is simple with Resolume's free tools. Follow the guided process to remaster selections for either DXV or ProRes with just a few clicks. Your files will be reborn as heavyweight champs ready for the limelight!
