The only currently supported resolution of the video is 320x240 in 256 colors at around 16.6 FPS. For additional technical information, please see the Spectrum Next developer portal.

The VID format supports additional resolutions and framerates, which may or may not include a separate palette per frame. The conversion currently supported is for 320x256 resolution only, with a palette per frame.

The ZX Spectrum Next supports a maximum pixel color depth of 3bps (bits per pixel). Where a palette is included, this is a 256 color palette from a pool of 512 colors.

This conversion tool is only suited for short video files. Due to the large files generated by this tool, video files longer than 5 minutes may get truncated. If you wish to create longer videos at different resolutions and frame rates, please use the dedicated Spectrum Next VID tool that can be downloaded and run on Windows-based machines.
