    Hello, I am trying to export an 8 hour video for YT. Music and scenic video images. Exporting in Premiere Pro 2022 on a PC, Custom H2.64 TBR 6.8, max BR 6.8. My first attempt was just under 16 GB. I need to compress this much more for uploading and playback, hopefully around 1GB. Any suggestions? I don’t think HandBrake or Media Encoder setting will make up the difference. Is there a good source where I can find more info on how to compress this much more? Thanks.

    <div>The resulting file size is shown in the compression settings window of both Premiere export and Adobe Media Encoder. Look to the bottom right. See attached. To get an 8 hour video down to 1GB you would need to compress down to about 300Kbps, though when I set encoder to that level (basically it’s minimum) it gives me a slightly higher estimate presumably due to the overhead involved. You don’t need to use a different compressor. That won’t make a difference. It’s just math. Bit rate times length. And don’t forget to convert bits to bytes. Bitrates are in bits per second, but we measure size in bytes, as in “gigabyte.”
