Compressor weird file sizes! WTF!
on Feb 10, 2006 at 8:16:58 am

Hey all,

Here's my problem:

Once I have finished editing with Final Cut Pro 5.0.4, I am exporting a quicktime reference to compressor.

I put in all my settings as per usual in compressor (a long piece of footage about 2hours) & then I make sure the file size is around 3GB as I have some other footage that I need to fit on my DVD-5.

Everything is all good I go to encode then a few hours later (Roughly) it produces my MPEG2 file as a whopping 4.8GB to 5.2GB (I've done it a few times) WTF!!!

I always produce a nice quality MPEG-2 file (2 Pass variable bit rate)

I can't understand it...

Can anyone shed some light on this!

Thanks Sandro
