Beware the dungeon ceilings of doom!

The basements beneath emperor Diocletian's palace in the city of Split, in Croatia form the core of this video, which I have now decorated with animations. My video editing software plays this footage fine. Unfortunately, when it renders it to a file for upload, it screws it up appallingly. I have contacted various 'support' people but they have told me to do the things I was already doing. I am repeatedly amazed at how bad video formats are, and how they seem to defeat even the most specialist and expensive software. What you see here is a very poor video file which does not come close to my hopes for this one. I spent several days doing the animations, and to see them look so poor is somewhat soul-destroying.

When I'm in shot, location camerawork by Josip Pavic.
