hi

i am coming over from videopad editor to premiere pro, and see how good life can be.

i have an issue with file size when exporting

when i creat a  4k video on videopad its final mp4 would be around 60 mb,  and that is fine for what i needed.

if i put that same file on the timeline in premiere pro, the export size is still the same.  but if i add just one more layer to the timeline, the export size becomes 500 mb.  why does it jump so much

i want to keep my final file sizes around 50 mb

 

any suggestions

Hi omid702018,

 

We can get this checked. Let us know the version of Premiere Pro and the export settings that you have used.

 

Thanks,

filesize = duration x bitrate.

If you want a smaller filesize: lower the bitrate.

Ann has the basic there ... filesize is the result of the bitrate (which is totally per second, no matter the framesize) times the duration.

 

Premiere and Resolve both are sort of minimalist in their compression options though. So many 'advanced' users will export say a ProRes "master" file from Pr or Resolve, then go to ShutterEncoder, HandBrake, or ffmpeg to get an H.264/5 with smaller file size while preserving visual quality.
