    Manage file size when capturing from tape with Premiere Pro CS4

    Macnimation Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I have been converting tapes and tapes of interviews that are around 30 mins each, so I dedicate a tape for each interview.

       

      The footage is shot on Sony HVR-A1's using SD format.

       

      Using the Capture option, I pull the footage from the tape on the Hard Drive.

       

      The footage though is coming out in huge file sizes averaging 6 GB but very high quality.

       

      Problem is the customer wants to be able to view AVI files of the rough footage quickly.

       

      Is it possible to adjust the quality of the Capture file size?

       

      If not, what would the best settings be to convert these files down to smaller manageable sizes and how?

       

      cheers
