Big discrepancy between estimated size of exported file and actual size
I’m using FCPX 10.6.5 on an IMac with a 3.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5, 16 GB of memory and running Ventura 13.2.
When I exported a film of mine from the timeline using the Apple Pro Res 422 HQ codec it told me the est. size would be 104.11 GB. It came out at 38.49 GB.
When I tried to upload the film to Filmhub (which requested the Apple Pro Res 422 HQ codec) I got a “compressed – please upload with higher bitrate” error message. (Oddly, I currently have the film up on Amazon Prime where it looks great).
Any way to get the size of the film closer to the 104.11 GB estimate?
Thanks in advance,
