So, got a weird request for a corporate gig im working on. This might not be weird for some of you guys, but usually i deliver same as source for 98 percent o fthe work i do. The other precentage i know how to deal with.

Anyways. I have been working with 1080 24p 5D MK2 files. Edited in MC in 1080p, dnxhd 175.

Got to the point where were taling about delivery and the company wants the files in

320 x 180 and under 20MB... now some of these files are 1:30 in length, but range to about 6 minutes. I have 14 of these to export.

Whats the best way to go about this. I have Compressor, Squeeze, Mpg Streamclip, Adobe Encoder. Im think export a QT ref, but what then? I just did a test in Compressor, and for 1.5 gig file, it got down to 68MB using the youtube sharing preset after i customized the frame size?

Any help is greatly appreciated, im sure its a no brainer, just nothing ive come across since i started working in HD

In MPEG streamclip as h.264. If you click Limit Data Rate, you can type in a number and adjust until the size comes up as under 20meg.

Hmmm.... just tried this and the lowest I could get a 5 minute video was 42meg by setting it to 10kbps. And lower and it stays the same. 20meg is damn small for a 5 minute video, even at that frame size.

Andrew is right. Compress with h.264 compression. Either MPEGStreamclip or Compressor.
Limit data rate to under 5,000kbps. and go lower if file size is still large.

If file formats don't matter to your client, you can try to compress it as an fly using adobe media encoder. flash videos are a lot smaller then quicktimes.

5000 kbps is not going to get a 5 minute video down to 20meg (and is overkill for such a small frame anyway). Do the maths. FLV may be the way forward.
