Thread: File size?

  1. #1

    Default File size?

    I made a video using fraps recordings of the game star wars battlefront II.

    The video was 5 minutes long.

    When I rendered it, it was a whopping 12.2 GB!

    I need to be able to upload it to youtube, but it's obviously too large.

    What can I do to make it at the most 1-2 GB?

    Use a compressed format like mpeg2 or mpeg4. Reduce the bit rate. Reduce the dimentions.

    Well, I changed the bit rate from 16,000,000 to 2,000,000 and used mpeg4 and it renders really slow. If it renders slower, it will be a heavier file, right?

    Do you have any recommended settings for a game video?

    Lowering the bit rate that far will drastically reduce you image quality. I think you may have been better lowering the over all size of the image and keeping the bit rate at around 8 Mb.

    There is no specific rules for game play footage as video is video. The speed of the rendering is down to a lot of factors the main one is down to the power of your processor. Another is the amount of compression it is going through.

    When I render my fottage to .m2t files at around 20Mb bite rate I expect around 4 mins of footage to be about 1 Gb file size.

    Thanks. I changed it to 720.

    Okay, I realized I saved it as .avi which made it HUGE. Saving it as WMV fixed my problem.

    Thanks for the help.
