SportsCode stand-alone or MoviePlayer stand alone movie formats create files that contain all the necessary data to view the movie independent of the original movie file. Since stand alone movies contain all the necessary data to be played on its own, they tend to be large files. Stand alone files are required when you wish to share the movie with other people on their computers.
SportsCode or MoviePlayer reference to original movie formats create reference files that point to original movies. Reference movies are very small in size and save very fast as they do not contain any raw video data and thus do not duplicate video data. However, the file must have access to it’s original raw movies from which it was created. If you delete the original movie, a reference movie will not play.
