I am trying to export from Premiere Pro CS5 to .mov and it works, but it
converts a 50MB .mts original to the final export of about 4GB!! I have
tweaked the settings a lot and cannot get any reasonable file sizes.
Does anyone use Premiere Pro CS5 and know the best settings to get the
best quality .mov file?
Thanks in advance!
The file size depends on the codec you are using to compress your video. When exporting to mov, the default codec is animation, and yes your video file will be huge.
Try exporting as MP4 and use the H.264 codec. This is a universal codec that both PC and Mac can play just fine.
Well , MOV is just a container, the codec in this foramt may not be known , try to use this MediaInfo to knwo the innter codec. And I suggest you can try the new H.265/HEVC codec, which will improve your quality into a higher level while smaller size.
