Ive got some footage shot from my Canon T2i (1080p @ 30fps) that ive edited the levels in to adjust the color. When I go to export it in Apple Pro Res 422 it works fine, the only problem is the file is MASSIVE. Ive got a 9 second clip that renders out to be 256.9mb. Considering the original footage is about 330mb per minute this is insanely large... My Mac has a hard time even playing the file without being choppy in the viewer or in quicktime, much less in FCP. At 28.5mb per second thats not really to surprising... Any suggestions?
