So I just want to preface this post by stating I am relatively new to this and acknowledge this may be a dumb question, but I could really use some help.
I edited a video in Adobe Premiere and it is just over 3 hours long. I exported it from Premiere using the YouTube 1080 HD setting as that is the format I want it in. The problem is the file is 22GB and I need it to be much much smaller, maybe 10GB max. How can I make the file smaller without losing too much quality?
In Adobe Media Encoder even changing it to YouTube 720 looked as if it would only reduce the file size by about 1GB. I'm currently trying a few things in HandBrake, but I'm feeling a little lost. I'd ultimately like to use Adobe Media Encoder, but like I said I've already exported to the YouTube 1080 HD setting so trying that again wouldn't make my file smaller right?
