-“Wildform Flix Pro 3.0”
by Michael Hurwicz
“Flix Pro beats the built-in video compression in Flash MX…producing smaller, better quality files…The video import function in Flash MX, based on a Sorensen Spark codec, produced dramatically inferior results…A more interesting question is how Flix Pro compares with Sorenson Squeeze…On the basic quality-versus-file-size question, the two products are competitive…[but] I wasn’t able to produce a SWF file With Sorensen Squeeze that was sufficiently close to the 500KB file from Flix Pro”
