So I made a video, but after I rendered it as .mov (since it seems every vid on my comp is .mov) its like 23gb, so I cant fit it on a DVD. Is there a way to make it smaller to fit on a disk without ruining the quality?


Thanks

How long is the movie and what's the resolution? Because in most cases, you can't make the video smaller in size.

Three options are either to run it through a compression program like WinRAR or 7zip, re-render it in a lower resolution, or re-render it into multiple videos.

or dont render in MOV.. You wouldnt happen to be using a Mac? most Mac stuff seems to be *banmeplzktx* for Quicktime/MOV

WMV works quite well, im not too versed in the other formats.. but MOV is just annoying for teh amount of space it takes up..

Unless this is like a 1 hour video at 1080p.. if its 23gigs.. thats just odd. My friends Black Magic intensity at uncompressed can maybe reach that size at like 30 minutes.. but its uncompressed footage, so thats alightly different..

you could use the same process you would to rip dvds to compress to 700megs or 1.4 gigs or so, but there probably be at least some loss in quality going that route.

When I make a 1 hour supergun show, it is in 1080 50p. They are about 12 gigs. I then render them in mp4, and they are 3.5 gigs.

Also why would you render it to .mov since most cameras shoot in .mov? Also, if it's a YouTube video, than you won't. Be able to post it since YouTube does not accept .mov videos

all my legos are stored at my parents hose... so that wont be happening....

Because this was a video made from scrap, consisiting of videos, transitions, music, and pictures. It had to be rendered to a viewable file, and since all the videos on my computer are .mov, thats what I rendered it to. And yes, youtube does allow .mov, since every video on my youtube channel (almost 100 of them) were uploaded as .mov.

I've gotten YouTube to upload .mov files before.

Really? That's weird, when I tried to upload my bands music video (.mov file) it said youtue didn't allow this kind of format or something.

Yeah, one video on my channel (Leprefail) was raw footage off a JVC HM-100 recorded to .mov and uploaded no problem.
