Best codec for computer graphic images?

posted in Video Codecs, viewed 1522 times

Is there a video compression / decompression codec that is optimized for images created from computer-generated renderings?

I have an open-GL application that creates some 3-D vectorized wire-frame images that are rendered in high resolution but with relatively few colors.

If I were capturing still frames from this animation, a .GIF image would, for example, be superiour vs a .JPG image. Is there a codec that is optimized for such images?

You might want to look into lossless codecs.
huffyuv, alparysoft, and MSU come to mind.
In QuickTime pro, the QuickTime animation and PNG codecs might also do the trick.
I also had good results with the techsmith codec which comes with camtasia, or its quicktime counterpart, ensharpen.
Some lesser known ones like corePNG might work too.
