Compressing HD Files
on Feb 1, 2011 at 5:36:52 am

Hello, I hope everyone is doing well.

I have approximately 7 hours of HD (720p) footage that I need to fit into approximately a 4 GB flash drive. I usually compress everything to H.264 files but they are coming up way too big. I've also tried to compress it as files such as M-peg 4 but they always come out too grainy and it 4:3 format.

I need something roughly in the middle. If anyone could lend some guidance, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you to everyone who makes this site what it is!

Tom

By the time you compress it don't to fit on that flash drive its going to look like HORRIBLE.

Storage is cheep i recommend getting a bigger storage device.

**Hindsight is always 1080p**

That's what I figured as well. What if I made the footage 16:9 SD. Do you think that would be a good idea? (I don't really know how to do this either)

Does it need to stay HD?
What is it for?

You could compress to H.264 mpeg4, 15 FPS
Size:960X540
44.1k mono or stereo
