Help Fast, compression

Good Morning,


I have a 40 minute hd movie I need to render under 500 mb. What settings would do this and not distort the audio or video? I got it to 650 but had an audio issue.

I have it set to 428x240, 30P, average at 2,000,000 Max the same. 2 passes

I went to 750,000 ave and 1.5 max and it was pretty poor.



When you "render as" to MP4 is there a way to know the file size before you actually render it???!!!!!

I need to submit by midnight tonight.

The ONLY thing that determines finished size of the encode is the bitrate it's encoded at. The "quality" of how that looks is determined by the codec.

In your case, you need 1,500 Mbps. Do it as CBR, and do a 2-pass if you can. But you may be out of time. Sorry no one helped you earlier.

Thanks Perrone,


I got one submitted.

I am now trying to get a 1280 x 720 file at just under 500 for my vimeo page. At it three days and still do not have one yet.

Perhaps it is time to get Squeeze.

500mb size limitations are certainly a problem for posting long-form programs on sites like vimeo.

The best intermediate file for vimeo, most quality in the least bits, will be MP4/h.264.

For the time you've spent on this, it would probably be easier just to become a Vimeo Plus member... Then you'd have 5Gb/week upload space, and only limited to a 1 Gb limit on a single file. Totally worth it!
