Message from Professor Luc:

"Those small video-clips animations were first done for the Internet, which meant they were small size and compressed - more humor than actual motion. But as the masters were done uncompressed, in stereo and edited as high resolution AVI movies, it made sense to fit the cartoons on a CD-R video, with a little help from my friend DivX codec. This way of storage has given some good results. So, If you have enough knowledges and a not-too-old computer, you can set up DivX (or VP3 for MAC) and discover those files almost as they were generated."

160 X 120 pixels is of course a very small size but sometimes, it catches the eyes better than a full screen. A technological gadget? A kind of collector item? - maybe, but it's also my visual tribute to some great music."

You can download the free codec and player (for PC or Mac) at www.divx.com
