If anyone has any answers I would really appreciate it, as I'm on a time crunch! Thank you in advance!!
Yes, that's correct. Each individual clip will have to be smaller than 4 GB in order to write it to the drive. FAT-32 is limited to a 4 GB file size. It would probably be a better idea - rather than dividing the clips into smaller segments - to reformat the drive as HFS+ (Mac format) which has no such limitation.
