View Full Version : [Premiere] Huge Filesize when exporting from Premiere

Hey everyone, couldn't find a topic like this when browsing through the boards.

I'm currently experiencing some problems with the filesize when exporting from adobe premiere:

I export with the following settings:

Type: Quicktime mov
Codec: DivX 6.8.5.
Framesize: 720 x 576
Framerate: 23.976
Pixel-ratio: D1/DV NTSC (0,9)
Audio: AC-3 ACM Codec

the filesize is about 10 gigabyte for a 2 hours movie. Now I installed DVD lab pro to edit the dvd, but it seems to be unable to open .avi files and I can only export .mov, .avi files from premiere, but no mpg files.

Anyone know which codec i need to install to export mpgs?

Or anyone know a compression to get the movie to a reasonable 700 mb size for previewing?

Currently when i upload videos or show it to my friends i use the setting:

Type: Microsoft AVI
Codec: DivX 6.8.5.
Framesize: 480 x 360
Framerate: 23.976
Pixel-ratio: D1/DV NTSC (0,9)
Audio: AC-3 ACM Codec

but there are so many errors and glitches rendering it this way, it really is only good for myself while editing, but not for a release. If i export the same settings but with a mov file (480 x 360 framesize) the file gets really huge again

so my question would be:

1) how to export mpgs from premiere
2) how to compress videos to a reasonable size without ruining the quality too much

DVD lab pro needs "m2v" video stream.

To get a good AVI, my advice would be to render from Premiere in mp2, then convert it with AutoGK.

thanks for the replies, I'm currently having some technical problems since for some reason Adobe won't let me convert to mpg2 even though I'm pretty dead sure i installed the correct codec (at least i thought it was in the "ffmencoder"-codec package) I'll try my luck with convertxtodvd, this might do the trick
