            Hi, thanks for quick response, basically it jsut a five minute vid... I made it in premiere... it's a normal pal project... basicall the festival just sent me an email saying they needed the film as a full quality quick time file... I try to make the film through the export movie then the quicktime option but the end file seem to come out really big.. I'm not going through the media encoder, jsut the export movie option, do I need to go through the media encoder, and can I get a full quality quicktime that way, if s what are the settings.. thanks.

              The Windows Media File that you usually export to is probably not using the same data rate as your original footage.

              For a full quality Quicktime to be used in FCP, I suggest that you export a DV AVI (assuming that is the footage you started with), and use Quicktime Pro to convert it to Quickime MOV.

              Or, carefully use the Adobe Media Encoder (not Export Movie) to create a 25Mbps Quicktime.
