Re-sizing Compression...
on Apr 10, 2006 at 2:49:22 pm

I have a video which is roughly 624x352 and about 350 megs. I want to burn this video to DVD, but Adobe Encore wants a file that is 720x480. When I resize it using premiere I get a file that is 9 gig. I have several files to do, and dont have the space to have several 9gig files on my comp.

Any suggestions on resizing and compressing these files?

What format is it in now? Codec? I assume you are on a PC. If you have Quicktime try exporting the clip to PhotoJpeg at abour 75% and it should give you a pretty small but good looking file for the Mpeg encoder.

If you're in the business of transcoding video you really, really need plenty of spare disk space. 9GB files are nothing these days and external hard drives are very cheap (250GB for $100).

BTW 624x352 is an aspect ratio of 16:9, resizing it to 720x480 would distort it (into 4:3)

If you don;t have access to the Pro vesion of Quicktime as Rich suggests, try MPEG-Streamclip (it's free) http://www.squared5.com/
