File size limit in Cleaner XL?
on Dec 9, 2005 at 7:29:06 pm

I am using Cleaner XL (ver.6.0.2.402 Service Pack 1) to compress a 19 GB QT file. The client wants a compressed file to be QT using the video codec, 320 x 240. During the lengthy compression process it built a _work.mov file that contained 700,000 KB at its peak. It took Cleaner almost 5 hours to chug through it and when it finished it left me with a QT file that contained 0 KB.

The same horrible thing happend when I ran compressed through Sorenson Squeeze 4.0.

Has anyone experienced this problem? Does anyone know if there is a limit as to what you can compress through Cleaner XL?

Many thanks
Jason H.

Well, you sure don't want to be using the "Video" codec. It's from 1991, and code named "Road Pizza." It was superseded by Cinepak over a decade ago.

Never did find out the cause of the problem with Cleaner and 19GB file. We ended up exporting out a QT reference file from our Symphony and then encoded that in Cleaner. We stuck with the video codec, despite its nickname, since that it was the client needed.

Cleaner did a good job with it; I wish I had thought of this solution earlier.
