Hello, I am filming weddings for clients but I am unable to export them with a small enough file size so that they are able to see it on their slower computer. And it is a pain when it doesn't even fit on a dvd. These videos are somewhere around 2 hours long. I would also like to have them still HD. The only way I have been slightly succesful is to upload them to youtube then download them off again. Is there a way to do this? I have already tried H.264. Thank you for your time!
Use the Adobe Media Encoder and h.264. It's currently your best option for small file size and HQ playback. You should also use AME to encode for DVD. 2 hours will easily fit on a DVD. If you want HD then burn a BluRay. That format will also hold a nicely compressed 2 hr movie. It's done all the time. You just have to learn about encoding for distribution. The standard presets are very good.
Thank you so much! I will definitely do that!
