What did you export, workarea or sequence? What settings did you use? Are you a new Spielberg?
Uhm, I feel like a noob here, 'cus I'm not really sure about the difference. However, I click my workarea (where it says Timeline: Sequence 01 as it is named, right above the project time) I guess. You know, where I edit, and everything is marked. Then File > Export > Media.
MPEG2, highest quality, 25 FPS then OK.
Thank you for the quick answer!
Also, Tarkovsky > Spielberg!
You comfirmed my suspicion:
"The two most abundant things in the universe, are Hydrogen......and Noobidity!"
Nothing wrong with being a noob. Everybody started there at some point in time.
Can you either post a screenshot of your export settings or give details, like length of the timeline, CBR or VBR, 1 or 2 pass, bitrates used, audio encoding, elementary streams or multiplexed, Also include your disk setup, connections (SATA, FW or USB), capacity, format (FAT, FAT32 or NTFS), free space and your CPU details as a bare minimum.
Is your HDD (Hard Disk Drive) formatted as NTFS, or FAT-32? The 4GB limit happens to be the largest file size that a FAT-32 disk can handle. In My Computer, Rt-click on the disk in question, and choose Properties. It will tell you the format.
This is by far the most helpful forum I've ever seen. Kudos to you guys!
My disk is NFTS, and it's a Raptor X Gamer with 10.000 RPM. So it should'nt be a problem right? It's a real badass.
Is this enough? If not, I will provide more screens.
Your source footage is set in a 720x576 sequence which you are trying to render to 1440x1080.
You need to check in what resolution you have filmed: SD or HD.
If its HD make a new sequence and copy your footage into this new sequence and render again.
If its SD render to dvd-mpeg2.
4 hours timeline is way to long, you need to cut it up.
Are you planning on sticking it on a dvd or Bluray?
No, that takes care of my question. I guess that the file size was just coincidental then.
