Hello,

I am a little bit of a noob.

I am trying to air some content on TV.

The Station Specs (which my video abides to) are:

29.97 fps
1920x1080
can not exceed 4GB file size
28 Minutes of runtime

I have never done any intense compression like this. I am a stiffler when it comes to quality and I am okay with compression but I would like the best quality.

I first rendered down my footage in premiere under DNxHD 175 10-bit. Now i have a 40 gb file and don't know what to do.

Should I go back and render it into something else? or should i take my DNXHD and throw it back into premiere and render again?

Thank you

do they take h.264? you can select constant quality or bitrate. 30min < 4gb... . Only h.264 with variable bitrate will look anything decent at that file size. Sorry, I don't have a work around.
Too bad no one supports h.265 which is half the file size of h.264.

Community Producers must use the following settings in your editing, transcoding, or compression software to create a digital file:

Format: .mp4, .mov, or .wmv

Resolution: 1920x1080

Frame Rate: 29.97 fps

28 minute program files must not exceed 4 gigabytes in size

I am sorry I forgot to mention . The 28 minute clip was all shot on a 5d Mark 3 at 1920x1080p 23.976.

Would just like to get the best quality under 4gb.

So they do not have any hard specs so you'll have to deal with it. Render out an H264 file from your DNxHD master. Adjust the bitrate settings in the export window and you can see a file size estimation on the lower right part of the window.

What are your exact export settings? Take a screenshot.

We routinely use MP4 (h.264 codec) as a final deliverable for paid half-hour programs. We get satisfactory results and have a final file size of about 1.2GB.

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2014 (as of 7/2015)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from HD MP4 and P2 MXF.
