First, before I say what I\'m about to say, I\'m assuming post-processed files means compressed files. If this is not correct than please tell me.

Assuming post-processed DOES mean compressed, why don\'t we have any? Wouldn\'t it be less bandwidth if the files were compressed?

If they ARE compressed, just tell me, I\'ve been wrong before. ;)

All the available files are compressed using a (currently somewhat random) video compression encoding.

In the world of 3D graphics you usually have two versions of your movie:
1) The raw movie directly from the rendering application
2) A post-processed version of the movie where additional effects (as well as sound and music effects) have been added.

The only sessions with post-processsed files (that I\'m aware off) is session 139. This is mainly due to the fact that most of what gets done here is purely testing the system - not doing actual renderings yet.

Okay, cool, so I was wrong.

Thanks for the explanation.
