I am shooting video of salmon jumping a waterfall. I let the camera run for fifteen minutes to capture 2 or 3 seconds of action at the end. The clips are enormous in size, and I am running out of disk space. I tried trimming them in Quicktime, but they retain their original file size.
Is there a way to reduce the size of the clip, both in time and MBs, before putting the clip into the sequence panel?
Just a little aside.
The perfect cameras for that salmon shooting task... are those with a pre - record buffer.
You push the Record Button after you see the event occur. It records from the buffer to the storage media.
Like a time machine...it shows you history..
I have a camera that does that, but never had the need to use it although I have considered a number of scenarios where I could if they arose.
Thanks for your reply, Jim. My only problem with this solution is the cost, $400. That's almost as much as I paid for Premiere Pro. I wonder if there is a stand alone software solution, or a less expensive Adobe product that will do the trick. Or maybe there is a capability to do it in PP that I am overlooking.
