What are the recommended specs for a generic animation / modeling reel?
I'm asking in terms of screen resolution / codec etc. I'm assuming 3 min max is a good length.

Dunno for sure... but I feel like it's not a major issue these days, since Vimeo and Youtube play HD and TV's are now HD. Personally, I do HD720 on my own animations. I don't think it's terribly necessary to do full HD for a show reel. And if you're rendering on a single box it might take too long anyway.

I can't imagine any studio not being able to play a generic Quicktime codec if they receive a showreel on disc. H264 is always a safe bet. Slightly off topic, I've found at school that anything playblasted out of Maya using Photo JPEG won't play back in Premiere or Photoshop (CS6), so I get my students to use H264 and it works fine.

Thanks Worzel. The reason I'm asking is because I've got a class of Yr 13 students (final year secondary) and the curriculum is that they are to produce a media outcome "to specification", so I thought to seek what might be practical in terms of real world expectations.
