mov size for fcp
on Sep 9, 2015 at 8:11:51 pm

Hi all
I have filmed a corporate and the mov i converted to is 40gb. My mac isnt the fastest and just cant handle this size for editing speed. The final video will only really be used for internal and web purposes.

Any suggestions regsrding what i could reduce the file down to? I have compressor and the original 20min file was shot on 1080i 25p on the z7 and the resulting mp4 converted to mov in MPEG STREAMCLIP

thanks for any help

FCP needs the file to be ProRes for editing purposes. Just get an external hard drive, Firewire 800, if you don't have one already, and put it on there. No fast computer is needed for this.
