Dear On2: Please join us here in 2006

Let me preface this by saying that On2 has been a consistently friendly and helpful company when contacted with questions. That said, their FlixExporter Quicktime plugin, for generating flash videos within Quicktime, is really 1990s. The biggest problem is that it isn’t multiprocessor aware – it’ll only peg one chip at 100%.

Second, the interface has a major heaping of ugly.

Third, and perhaps not On2’s fault, the exporter cannot be used to distribute compression across compressor nodes. This may be a limitation imposed on all export components, so perhaps I should be angry at Apple.

Anyways, seeing as I’ve just been wrapped up in Flash video all day, I figured I’d make a post about it …
