Lowering exported video file size in Final Cut Express 4?
on May 26, 2012 at 11:42:08 pm

Hi everyone. Since this is Final Cut Express, hopefully one of you can answer my question.

Today, I've made four videos that I want to upload to YouTube. Each one is about 8 minutes long, and is about 1.2 GB after it's been exported. Is there any way that I can get this file size down to somewhere around 500MB?

I'm not sure how important it is, but each video contains HD 720p video at 59.97 frames per second recorded with a Blackmagic Intensity Extreme.

I'm also not sure how important this is, but when I export, I export using QuickTime Conversion.

Export settings:
Format: QuickTime Video, H.264
Dimmensions: 1280x720 HD

Sound sample rate: 48 kHz
Sample size: 16-bit

I also have "Prepare for Internet Streaming" checked.

If anybody could help me out and give me some tips, that'd be awesome. I'm no video expert, but I know my way around FCE.
