Hello,

I am fairly new to Mac and just transferred a video file from my video camera. However, the video is only 10 seconds long and turns out to be 45mb!.

I have done a quick search, does anybody know how you compressed the files, particularly in MOV. format?

Thanks

From iMovie, if you choose File >Share... and click on the QuickTime tab, you should see a list of compression choices. If you select "Expert Settings" you can specify the codec, pixel size, and audio settings of the exported MOV.

H.264 and MPEG-4 are some of the most advanced codecs for a QuickTime (MOV) movie.

(You can import any QuickTime-supported file into iMovie if its not already there.)
