same timeline settings as footage, but no real time and exported files bigger??
I m editing 25P Pal dv footage, i ve set my timeline settings to match my footage, but i have this "orange bar" instead of green, and when i try to export my edit ( with same settings again ) my files are 10 times bigger that they should be, like 5 gigas for 4 minutes... of dv.

anyone can help me?

Check your RT setting is set to "safe". Orange is for unlimited.

Double check your timeline settings are DV-PAL compressor.

How did you export? You may have used the wrong export codec.

well it seems that my timeline was in uncompressed 8 bits :)
I changed it to DV pal, realtime playback now ;) but let's imagine i just want to export an edited rush without any compression but with the size of dv format, do i have to choose DV pal compression in the export setting too?
it seems to add more compression to the already dv pal of my timeline, and when i choose uncompressed 8 bits the files are way too big...so to sumarize : How to export dv footage edited from fcp without any other compression and in the size of normal dv footage?

sorry for the crappy english

Don't worry about the crappy English, most people here in England can't speak it, let alone write it.

To export a DV-PAL movie from a DV-PAL timeline simply go;

File>Export>Quicktime Movie...

Use 'Current settings'
Don't check 'Recompress all frames'.
Do check "Make self contained movie'.

Hope that helps.
