Thread: Saving for the web?

  1. #1

    Default Saving for the web?

    Hey I'm new here but I've been editing videos for about a year now. I've made videos to go on DVD mostly, but I'm currently producing a few smaller videos to show on my website.

    But whenever I save my projects as quicktime .mov's the file size is always ridiculously big. Is there a way to make the size smaller?
    I'm using Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5

    You want to save as WMV files.

    Other options include QuickTime (*.mov) and RealMedia (*.rm). But I think Windows Media is better.

    Depends what bitrate you use really... The same goes for any codec TBH.

    goto the review forum i posted information about the h.264 codec, Better then divx, at half the file size. its a godly new codec, its the newest revission of mpeg4 codec devoloped for use in everything, from cellphones to HDTV

    Capable of the highest bitrates and lowest and it retains more quality per the same bitrate compression then any codec i have seen.

    It's good enough for download.

    In Premier pro go to File -> Export -> Adobe Media encoder...

    Choose format 'Windows media' anf then choose one fo the WM9 Downlaod 512 presets. It'll do the job for you. It's what I tend to post my movies to this forum in and no-one has ever complained about quality. At least not in the encoding anyway

    I've exported a project using the techniques you said, but it looks choppy

    Well, certainly it's not perfect but I find that preset gives me about 30 seconds of video to abot 1Mb of drive space. I find this acceptable for showing people odds and ends on the net.

    It's all a question of size vs quality. You just need to find the balance you prefer.

    but if someone asked me my opinion of a littel videop they've made and expected me to download 50Mb for a one minute clip I'd politely decline.

    I've had the same problem, I've seen loads of people posting quicktime movies on the net, at really good quality, and at a small size. Like 1:30 of film for 10MB, and the quality is amazing.

    Is there not a way you can change the codecs of .mov's?
