A one hour DV file will be about 12 or 13 GB. You're not doing anything wrong. That these file sizes surprise you suggests you're using highly compressed media not designed for editing as your source footage, which is very likely the cause of your issues.
DV really is the baseline standard for Premiere. You can get bigger, but smaller usually means too much compression to edit well.
Really? That seems ridiculous, but I guess it is how it is. Thank you for your help.
>That seems ridiculous
No, that would be trying to edit a delivery format
You are an artist - You paint on a canvas
It is a FLAT canvas where you may see and paint everything
That is similar to Premiere with a DV AVI type 2 file... it may see and paint (edit) everything
1-Now, read here to see Why NOT to try and edit an MPEG
Your canvas is now "fan folded" like the expanding part of an accordian You may now only see the edges of the folds - You may NOT see inside the folds You are now trying to paint a full picture based only on being able to see those edges
That is similar to Premiere with any variety of SD (StandardDef) file compressed into an MPEG (HD "HiDef" is different, with it's own set of issues and problems)
Do not be fooled by movie industry advertising into thinking that "DVD Quality Video" is suitable for EDITING... it is not... a DVD is for PLAYBACK only!
