mp4 to ProRes generates MASSIVE file size
on Feb 3, 2015 at 5:17:20 pm

Need to edit an mp4 in FCP7. The file is a 22 min. HD vid, 1080x1920 and 760MB in size.

Knowing that ProRes 422 is most stable, I dropped that into compressor and rendered it out in LT. It turned my 760MB file into a 13.8g file!

So I tried the using proxy setting... the audio sounded sped up and the file size wasn't much smaller.

What am I doing wrong? Any advice on another stable codec for FCP? This isn't for broadcast, doesn't have to be to full spec, so maybe ProRes is overkill?

Thanks kindly.
