    Default Trying to compress (for lack of better words) my movie

    I am new to this so please be patient with me on what may be a goofy question. I have produced a 45 minute long off-road video. I have it for sale on dvd but some of my customers would like it to be offered in a digital download. The file size in quicktime is 1.77 GB so it is pretty large for a download. Is there a good way to reduce the file size without loosing the quality?

    OOPS! I forgot to mention I am using a Mac if that makes any difference.

    Reducing the file size will inevitably reduce the quality of the video. You can either make the dimensions smaller or reduce the bit rate. I don't use a Mac so I can't tell you step by step exactly what settings to choose You don't even say what setting you used to render the movie so I don't know if it's HD or not I would have thought with a file that small it won't be HD. 1.77Gb does not seem that large to me for a movie down load but I suppose if you have a slow internet connection it would take a while.
