I'm brand new to this site - and self taught when it comes to web design.
I have been working in video graphics for years and want to post animations to my site yet they are extremely slow to load. I have Quicktime Pro, After Effects and flash (but have not learned it yet) but have not found a setting that plays back nicely. My video production buddies say i must have Media Cleaner - but that is very expensive and I am hoping that there might be a way around that $500 expense.
Any suggestions as to compression settings and max sizes would be very helpful.
