Sprite Sheet VS Video

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

please checkout the attachments, 3 gifs to show you examples of the animation that I want to implement on the site.

actually, those just a placeholder and the client will change them later.

my question is, which is the best for the performance and compatibility? to implement them as videos or Sprite Sheet?

FYI - In mobile devices it will be just image ( no animation required ).

Thanks so much

What do you mean "performance"? Do you mean file size? Framerate? Lack of jank?

 

Will they just be played through? Scrubbed through? Looped? Does user interaction have anything to do with them?

Hey @ZachSaucier

thanks for your quick response, I appreciate it.

the videos will be played one time ( no loop ), and it doesn't require any interaction from the user.

in regards to the performance, I mean the loading speed and the use of site's resources.
for example, we have a slider with 8 slides, and each slide contains 2 or 3 videos, all those in one page.

the most important question is the browser (Desktop only) compatibility and rendering of videos, will I face any problem with that? all videos will be autoplay(muted).

I heard that in some browser the user needs to click on video to play it if he use data to connect with internet ( not wifi ).

Thanks

Most likely a modern video format is your best bet then. You can experiment with export settings on a per-video basis.

 

So long as your video doesn't have audio playing you should be able to autoplay it. I think very few people will connect to your site via desktop over data.

thanks again for your help,

could you tell me the reason for choosing Video and not Sprite Sheet?
