How long is the timeiine? (Minutes/secs)
Let us know step by step what you are doing from :
1. Menu>Export>Adobe Encoder...
Do you actually let it finish encoding, or do you just go by the "estimated 35MB" when you say they're all the same size?
Hi, many thanks for your replies.
The work area that I wish to export is 15 minutes and 38 seconds so relatively short.
I always let it finish encoding and they are all around 250MBs when this is finished.
These are the steps I am taking:
1. Menu>Export>Adobe Encoder
2. Change setting to custom and set the bit rate at 300 kpbs, Framerate 25, Keyframe interval 1, Codec On2 VP6, Audio 32kbps Mono
3. I then save this preset
4. I then click the Deinterlace button on the Output tab
5. I then click OK and save it to my external hardrive
6. Once it is finished encoding - whatever settings I have selected - it always comes out around 250 MBs which is far too big as it takes ages to buffer
If you can help you are a lifesaver!
>Keyframe interval 1
Try unchecking "Set Key Frame distance" and see if the quality then will be good enough for you. It will for sure make your filesize a LOT smaller.
I wish I could, the trouble is I am synching the video with slides so need the short keyframe interval.
That's odd. One might normally expect to see audio synced with a slideshow, but not video. I mean, which one do people look at - the video or the slide?
>...so need the short keyframe interval.
I doubt that you do need it (that short). :) Try something like 12 frames instead of 1. By setting it to only 1 frame you are presenting the encoder with an impossible task: It can use only 300Kb/s and it has to encode every frame as an intraframe (comparable to DV compression).
Thank you - perhaps the keyframe issue is the route of it. I will try and see what I can get away with.
Jim - as for your question above,the video with slides have proved more popular with the kind of audiences we want to reach (who like as much info as possible.)
Just curious, what's the subject matter?
They are mainly informative marketing videos covering various topics so, given how hectic marketters often are, they tend to want maximum information quickly (and also need it to look pretty snappy)
