How to limit the Bitrate when exporting?
on Aug 31, 2010 at 2:03:43 pm

Sorry if this may sound like a stupid question - but I need to export a Quicktime Mov from Final Cut Pro with a Videobitrate of 872 kBit/sec. So, I chose Export - with Quicktime - choose the H.264 Codec and set the Bitrate to 872 kBit/sec.
When I watch the exported movie and look at the information it shows me a much higher bitrate (2727 kBit/sec) it a bug? Or am I doing something wrong?
Thanks in advance

How big is your video? That would be appropriate for a decent h.264 of size 640x360. If you're going full size, perhaps that's just beyond the ability.

I use qt conversion and usually set it at 800. The audio settings will add more.
