compression in quicktime
on Aug 25, 2009 at 9:21:04 pm

I have a client I'm documenting an event which I will then edit in Media 100 and deliver on a DVD. I will be delivering segments of the event as Quicktime files on CD The client wants to know before hand how many gigs a Quicktime movie of 1 hour duration would be. I'm not sure how to answer them. Any suggestions?
Thanks
Bruce

[bruce botts] "The client wants to know before hand how many gigs a Quicktime movie of 1 hour duration would be."

As big or as small as you want it to be depending on the data rate or codec if it's a fixed data rate codec.

I'd follow up by asking your client how big is the internet (sorry I couldn't help myself).

What is the client going to use the content for? (Broadcast/draft edits/DVD etc...)

Read "How to get fastest compressions help" sticky at the top of the forum. We need a lot more info like I can ask a score of questions but the basics will be in that post.

The internet can't be that big because it fits on all of our computers.
