newbie?: output res + size
on Jun 7, 2011 at 12:42:27 pm

My org .mov is 720x480 (853x480), when I render it becomes 720x480 (872x480). Also the rendered file is aprox 1.3 gb where the org file is <200 mb? I'm guessing I'm missing some settings. Thanks!

Specs man?????

What is the format and codec of the clip? (Look in browser)

When you drop it in a sequence, do the settings match?

What is your destination? Web? DVD?

Well, you have very compressed video (probably in the h.264 format) and you've rendered it - in a format that FCP can handle 'well' (probably DV or ProRes) and it's not as compressed (which is a good thing.)

Video eats 1g/min uncompressed SD.
