    Thumbs up File size too large? (How do I save a movie?) plz help
    Wonder if you could help me with something.. I've made videos after videos blogging on the iSight saying a thank you to you ect, when I drag the file onto my desktop it's over 500MB in size and of course, far too large to upload to video sharing websites..

    Steve, how can I save the file so it cuts a lot of the size down? I used AVS Video Editor on XP but just been to the website and there is no support for Mac.

    Any help would be great, thanks.

    Open in quicktime, then export using 'expert settings' and set the settings so that it exports at a smaller physical size, lower bitrate etc

    I think you have to have upgraded to Quicktime Pro to do that. Take a look at ffmegx, it's free and easy.

    I'm missing something. You are asking about PC software on a Mac forum. Why? Check this link for some leads.

    I looked at their page and it says that the software can export to QuickTime or MP4, so choose one and learn how to reduce the files size by customizing the bit rate. I discuss that for iMovie in two guides I wrote. Those might help you understand this stuff a little.

    P.S. If you can't see my site, that is because I've chosen this weekend to change hosts and that may mess things up for about 48 hours.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
