Thanks for replying to the previous posts.
I have an ad I shot in HD 1080 format and I have to upload it to a competition, whose specifications are that it should ideally be an mov container with 300 MB file size limit, but suggesting I should aim for 30 MB per 60 seconds. My ad is 90 seconds long. I used Final Cut Express to output something using H264, and it said the target file would be 30 mb, but ended up being 8.5 MB with terrible pixellation. Should I try to use a converter? I want to ideally preserve the 1080 resolution but can come down to 720 if need be. Handbrake isn;t even reading the mov source edit file, just freezing.
Thanks so much for your time.
