Codec (Code and Decode)

Lucas Film wanted to create a digital compressed file format in the 90’s.

Cinepak was a company who would code and decode (make a file you could create)

H.265 – Lucas film created H.265 (Small file sizes with very good resolution) – You can burn it to a CD/DVD and YouTube.


Audio Lossy Files – .mp3 (moving pictures experts group)


.ac3 (DVD)

Video Lossy Files – .mp4


Lossy compression means you cannot return to the original file.

Lossless – Quicktime, Movie File


Lossless compression – Uncompressed

File size – Large file sizes

Audio and Video playing at the same time – Muxed (When exporting the files in editing when using audio and video this is called muxed).

DVD playable on a device – .m2v (video) and .ac3 (audio) and they become .mts but these aren’t muxed.

My teaser trailer will feature lots of drama to add suspense when it features the howl of a wolf at the end during the interview with suspenseful and tense music, building up gradually to the howl at the end. The screen will fade to black at the end and have titles on some clips which have rhetorical questions like “Will she get out alive?” and things.
