Match Iphone Settings for Premiere Export
Thought this would be easy, but I’m missing something obvious.
My overall goal is to reduce the filesize of a video to <25MB so that it can be emailed.
Original file is 68MB from an iPhone14.
Drop it into Premiere, halve the screen resolution as a starting point (knowing with compression it isn’t strictly going to provide a file 25% of the size). Use the HEVC format (since that is what the iphone used) and export. It explodes to 302MB.
The iphone is quicktime and premiere output an mp4, but I’d think the codecs would be the most important component. So, I set Premiere to Quicktime which defaults to Apple ProRes 422HQ (and using HEVC is not an option for the video codec) -> 722MB.
I’m curious what setting I would use to have it re-create (roughly) the same file size that the iphone generated. From there, I can try other ways to reduce the file size but I’m going in the wrong direction with essentially no changes, just re-encoding the base file but at a smaller resolution.
