  • Reduce file size

    Hello again
    I was wondering if anyone knew how to reduce the file size of a video without reducing the quality. I have a file that's about 6.5GB ad I need it under 500MB. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    What codec? If you aren't using it, switch to h.264.

      If you have COMPRESSOR, that's how you do it. Depending on your computer it can take a while.

      There are many different choices in COMPRESSOR, just be sure to pick the correct one. I forget what it's called, but there's a section where it will tell you the size the compressed file will become.

        You're going to sacrifice audio or image quality somehow when shrinking such a large file size to a smaller one. I recommend you download a low-cost compression program and play around with file sizes and compression levels until you come out with something you are happy with.

          What editing software are you using? Whats the video length?

            Klay M Abele: I'm using Blender but now I can't seem to get it to render my video - I suspect it's something to do with the sound but I'm not sure what the problem is.
            Does anyone have any experience with Blender? If not I'll go to Blender Artists forum but I guess that more people here will have experience rendering and editing videos and sound in Blender.

              I've done a bit, but I'm by no means a Blender expert. What are your render settings?

                I'll have to check.
                Off the top of my head I think that some of them were
                1022x1080 - or something like that 100%
                Quicktime at 100% quality
                LLC/LCC audio or something like that.

                I'll screenshot them when I get the chance.

                      Hmmm, could something be weird with the location you are saving it too? That didn't look normal in the screenshot.

                        When I render it, it says that it can't do something with a temporary audio file and then it says it can't render quicktime movie.

                          Try updating quicktime. Also, is the audiofile directly saved on to the computer? Normally, "temporary audio file" would be like if you took audio off a USB and then removed the USB and tried to render.
