Picture a snowboarding video that is built to be nine-minutes and twenty-five seconds had a huge processing time of 19 hours. After two hours of processing adobe returned Error Code 4 - Selector 17 plus a huge video file size of 22.34GB with only three minutes and thirty four seconds of playback.Here are the nuts and bolts of my recent project I’m trying to finish.


  • Ten Second Intro including Photo Illustration, Motion Graphic Title & Sound Effects
    Followed by Twenty-Eight Audio/Video clips from my GoPro cameras totaling 6.54 GB file size
    Over layed by Three Audio Tracks totaling 15.7 MB
    Four Photos used in the project including Illustrations equal 8.1 MB
    Video transition dips to black followed by credits overlay

This is not far from my standard video layout except this time the video is not processing and returns a huge file size. The last edit i recently made was actually 3:30 with a file size of 4.6 GB. I was expecting this video file size to come back around 13GB.


What am I doing wrong with this video project?
