  In general, no.  The compression codecs return variable size byte
  counts for the frames they compress. 

  However, in later versions of the movie library (eg, IRIX 6.2),
  some codecs support generation of a constant bitrate. Use the
  parameter DM_IMAGE_BITRATE when creating an image track. (Note
  that this is not supported by all codecs; CinePak is the only
  one currently supporting this feature.)
