    I am a newbie and probably the issue is discussed somewhere else, so a direction would be greatly appreciated.

    I started from a Zoom registration of 2hrs 50 min (info from Quicktime Inspector: zoom_0.mp4, H264, 1280×720, 25 fps, data dim 391,5 MB, data speed 299,08 kbit/s).

    I edited it in Premiere Pro CS6 (life licence official version, can’t afford any upgrade) on a MacBook Pro:

    – same sequence setup as source (possibly bad translation of commands, no English version)

    – added a picture at the beginning for a few seconds

    – no titles

    – 3 cuts made for less than one minute

    – just 1 crossfade

    – nothing else

    If I select as export setup “same as the sequence”, the following options are “promised”:

    file .MXF, 960×720, 23,976 fps (!?), no estimation of file size

    This seems a bit crazy to me: why size and frame rate change? why .mxf instead of .mp4? why the progress bar starts moving after after 20 minutes, announcing almost 2 hours completion time? why a resulting file of about 12 GB (Gigabytes!)?

    The minimum size I could obtain bungling with codecs was a .flv file of 1.3 GB, unreadable by QuickTime player, if readable by VLC.

    If I choose a codec H264, I am “promised” a .mp4 file of 6500 MB.

    I would use the result to upload the file on the site of my course, which accepts files up to 100 MB.

    No better luck with completely different projects: HD films of holidays, shooted by a Sony Handycam NEX-VG10 (HD AVCHD), which I tried to mount with fades and titles, to be viewed on a 55″ HD Tv set: huge files and lower quality than the source directly viewed on the TV.

    Where am I wrong? Perhaps I don’t have the right codecs? (The codecs I can choose among in annex)

    Can please somebody support me or address to the right thread?

    Thanks for your patience

    Dont use Match Sequence settings.

    Set format to H.264 and pick a matching Youtube preset to begin with.

    If the filesize is too big reduce the bitrate.
