Use a lower bitrate. Quality has nothing to do with filesize. Filesize is only determined by the number of frames and the bitrate.
Thank you, Harm !
This is the first time in my carreer, that I've seen a qualitysetting that doesn't inflict on filesized
I went in to set the bitrate diffently, but the field is grey'd out - it's not possible for me to change.
It seems to be locked no matter what quicktime-format I choose. If I choose h.264 format insted, I CAN change bitrate, but I need to deliver in XDcam for this client.
Is there no way for me to make the XDcam files smaller, then? They end up 5-7GBs for each show and with my upload-speed, it takes me 6-7 hours to upload and I would like to speed this up by decreasing the file sizes a little, if possible?
XDCAM is 35 Mb/s bitrate, at least this 4:2:0 version. If you need to deliver XDCAM, you have no options, but may consider sending a HDD to your client. Otherwise you need to change the output to a H.264 format and reduce the size by lowering the bitrate.
Thank you for the clarification, Harm
