    Why is my calculated file size incorrect depending on bitrate?




      I have created a sequence in PPro CS4.  It is HD 1920 x 1080 - probably interlaced as it came from a Sony SR10 PAL camera.


      The sequence is 7 minutes long.


      When I encode it using Media Encoder CS4, I have set it to H264 and TS multiplex.  When I set the constant/ variable bitrate to 11 Mbps, the final file is around 1600MB, at 1920 x 1080i.


      In my opinion, a 11Mbps video file, which is 7 minutes should be around 580MB.  (7m x 60s x 11Mbps / 8bits)


      What is going on?
