Hi all experts,
I am a bit baffled.
You see, I did a 90 seconds effects in AE and the resulting file in mov rendered in 1920 x 1080 @ 25 fps yielded a file of 5 GB.
Then I bring in this file into Final Cut to be part of my sequence with the same settings of 1920 x 1080 @ 25 fps. The whole duration (including the 90 seconds clip from AE) is about 7 mins. How come this time the file is only 1GB ?
I mean why is the file which is 7 mins long incorporating a 90 secs clip of 5GB is only 1 GB in size ?
Todd's pointing to an FAQ reply concerning codecs. In order to give an accurate answern, we need to know the codecs you used throughout the project, inside and outside of AE... and you really need to get a good understanding of codecs, too:
Thanks Dave &Todd for the clue & tips !
