File size is dependant upon only two things - bitrate and duration. Codec, resolution, frame rate, etc,. will not have any significant impact on file size.
So, assuming you you want the entire clip exported, the file size will be dependant only upon the bitrate. If it comes out too large, you need to lower the bitrate. (However, doing that with any codec will also lower the quality.)
Bear with me as I'm a newbie with Adobe Premiere Pro and video editing. Here are my export settings for the video:
Do these settings seem somewhat accurate?
Edit: The orignal file size for this video is 54mb but with the export settings above the filesize will be 1.9gb! I'm trying to decrease the file size lol
Like I said, if you want a smaller file, you need to lower the bitrate. It really is that simple.
Your export settings are a bit far from your source over all.
1080x675 in square pixels progressive
128 kbps AAC audio with 44.1 kHz
VBR with a target of 2 max of 3 Mbps
... and keep smiling
Thanks guys. I adjusted the settings and bitrate as suggested and the filesize has come down significantley to 70mbs, only a bit more than the original wmv file.
I naively thought saving it as an mp4 would get the fiesize down to peanuts
