Need to export low quality to sed over internet. Can someone please advise the best way?

Hi All, Hope you're all well!

I have six sessions from a conference I shot last week, ranging from 40 mins to 1hr 40 mins.

I need to export all these today, to send to them over the internet by the end of today. They aren'twcorried about quality as they will just be streamed over their intranet, so I'm looking for a way to export these at a lower rate. I haven't really got time to export them as normal and then compress them after, but I fear that this may be at the only way?

Is there any way around this? Can you compress a self contained file?

Any help muchly appreciated. Absolutely love this website and has got me out of a few scrapes before!!!

Russ

Upload to a service like Vimeo and have them download the resulting mp4s.

I use 'Wetransfer .com' for such requirements. Converting to H264 or HEVC H265 will reduce file size and transfer time .

I ususally use apple devices 720P in FCPX sharing pane. Its a decent trade off between quality and size. Obviously you can create a preset that is even lower Fi than this. This built in preset seems to check the reasonable quality/file size trade off for me.

I’ll up load the output file to my DB account and send the link to the necessary people from there. Frame IO is another option worth exploring.

Cheers Mark, I will try apple devices. Is that just an MP4 file? or is it a file that I would then convert?

I actually ended up using we transfer but you have a limit of 2 GB.

The one session was 80gb and I managed to get it down to 8gb but couldn't get it any lower. I uploaded it to dropbox for them and got round it that way.

Thanks for the reply!

Yea this is a good suggestion, but a couple of the files were absolutely huge. One of them was 80gb, would FCP/Vimeo compress it right down to a suitable size?

Compressing to HEVC (H265) will save you a ton of space (and time up/down loading) eg. a recent 18.75 GB ProRes 422 HQ clip ended up as a 396.4 MB file.

I don't have that option on my share section. How do I get that or do I have to create it?

Or are you meaning to use compressor? I don't think I've got compressor anymore but I could probably get it off my old FCP7 pack.

I have created an FCPX share preset using compressor, but if you don't have compressor you could download 'Handbrake' (it's free) to convert an FCPX Master ProRes file to H265. What version of OS and FCPX are you using?
