    Exporting from FCP = prob w-filesize

    Ok.. at the end of my rope.
    I made a video with a dvx100 and it is 07:14 seconds long. Not 7 minutes.
    Everytime I export this it is huge! I cannot get it under 20mb which is silly. Now what really burns me is that I made one last month and exported it and it came out to 4.1mb - but I do not remember how I did it.

    Any ideas? What is the best way to do this> so I can be consistent..
    Need 320x240
    Will need to attach it to an email - but has to be under 7mb to do that.

    thanks in advance

    Hi there,

    It'll be good if you can go take a look at the older 4.1mb video and look at what you can find in info (command + i) and look under More Info.

    That will tell you how you did it.

    Otherwise do state what your output settings are when you export to QT.

    Exporting from FCP

    Hi Jim,

    I use flip4mac to export WMV files straight from the sequence to the desktop it's reliable & inexpensive. You can control the size of the file using the menu. The other way is using compressor to convert to an mp4 file.

    I hope this helps

    I found a MUST-HAVE Apps for video producers on working with Apple.

    MPEG_Streamclip. It's a very small freeware, but it's way power-packed. Almost every kind of file types and versions are available for transcoding / recoding. I commend this to Apple video users to have this handy tool in their Application 'pockets', even if you run FCP Suites. It saves you from a lot of hassle and trouble.
