Try one of the adaptive bit rates, Tdo. Likely you have the high bitrate preset enabled.
I stated I had the high bitrate enabled, as anything under 8 is really not good quality.
And while the adaptive high bitrate setting does reduce the file size, it does it by setting the bitrate to a one pass at 6.8.
This doesn't solve my problem, as I'm trying to find the balance between at least 8 for the minimum bitrate, and a small file size.
I'm aware that lowering the bitrate lowers the file size, but the cost is quality, and quality with low size is the aim.
I'm not sure that there's much we can offer you in these support forums then (unless someone has a workaround that I don't know of). Sorry about that.
Can you file the issue here? Premiere Pro: Hot (3161 ideas) – Adobe video & audio apps I've seen a few others struggle with the newer presets and controlling file sizes, etc. Please add your voice.
