I am using Cleaner XL (ver.126.96.36.1992 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?
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.
