I got tired of waiting for it to load. I waited 6 minutes and then I gave up.

Wade, as I said in the other thread, great job.

Only a few minor things I could think of. Just out of curiosity, how long have you been working in AE?

Also, here are a few tips to export to make downloading a bit more manageable while maintaining quality. 112 Megs is a BIG file. You can do these either right from Quicktime or in Compressor. I normally use Compressor, but for ease, here's the Quicktime settings I normally use:

You can bring the quality down to "High" and still look visually similar.

Second, when exporting, select "Prepare for Internet Streaming" and "Fast Start - Compressed Header" to allow for progressive download. This will let it play faster.

But congrats on the intro. Good luck with it!

Same here. I just gave up.
Very few will wait, and those that do will wonder why they had to.

This is not how a possible client would view it. The entire intro and demo is burned to DVD for viewing.... This is just a large file we put online for a test that's all. :0)

ScottRSullivan's compression advice above is great. Anyone else that is planning on putting a video on the web should look at those settings.
