That is an awful lot of compression but possibly if it is used an uncompressed codec in the quicktime wrapper it may reduce ok. Open Adobe Media Encoder and "Add" it. Go to the settings button and apply H.264 codec encoding and see what size you get.
Then if that is still to large go to the settings button and reduce the frame size (if possible) and then the Quality Level. It is a trial an error process..
Thank you for your reply!
I tried doing as you said. The .mp4 file was only 38.8 MB, which is a great improvement!
So now I wonder, how can I make that into a .mov? Repeating the process the other way around sends it to 383 MB. Any suggestions for that?
With the Export Settings window open you can export it as a MOV using the and use the h.264 codec
Here are the steps you can follow to get a .mov file with H.264 compression:
1) Select format as QuickTime in Adobe Media Encoder
2) Launch settings UI
3) Select any preset
4) Under video tab , change the video codec to H.264
5) Change the frame size and quality best suited to your needs
This was you will get a .mov file with compressed version of your original .mov file. You can tweak the frame size and quality settings to vary the output file size and quality.
Let me know if this helps.
Thank you very much for your directions! While I haven't gotten it beneath 50 MB yet, I now have an idea how to do it and will work at it.
Again, thank you!
