Thanks for sharing my video compression post!

These shows are a great resource.


great stuff as always Brad… I am always able to take something from these episodes.

Can you speak to why there are some phantom neon pixels on my 3d text? In just one spot there are some neon green pixels and on another attempt there was a smattering of white pixels. All these occur right where the face meets the extrusion. Thanks for any wisdom you care to share.
