Video Editing Help Needed
 
I have been creating compilations of videos for upload to LL. The videos look great, but I can't upload them because they are too large in size = 450Mgs, with a HD720 resolution and filetype = MP4.

I am looking for recommendations on edit methods to reduce file-size of videos without compromising visual impact. Any help is appreciated.

What program are you using to edit?

The Submit page says up to 2000 mb. That's 2 gigs, right?

I use Video Vegas on Windows 7.

The best program I've ever used to change formats and/or reduce file size is Easiestsoft Video Converter

well worth the price with lifetime upgrades.

No need to shrink it, it'll only make it look crappier. Besides, you can upload files up to 2GB now, so you're far from that limit.

Handbrake is listed in your link as a free compression program with great reviews. I will try this. Thanks.

Nothing serious. I have freeware called Videopad and a cheapo called Adobe Elements that was part of a bundle. They both have limited function, but where one is limited, the other seems to be functional - except for excessive sizes.

For some reason rendering takes a long time, and often crashes the programs when the file is too large.

I am aiming for an average-sized video. They cause less grief, haha! I have experienced some issues with uploads and displays to LL in the past, not recently. I remember that you had worked on a touching compilation with OneIrishMan. How large was your largest upload?

I don't think I am ready for the "prime-time" commitment of Vegas or $$. I am trying to learn as I go. It's definitely something I am planning to do when I know more terminology and methods.

I've seen a couple youtube videos about this free program that Moe had linked to. It shrinks 75-90% with no noticeable reduction in quality. I thought I would have to do more complicated things like reduce the dimensions of the videos or change to another filetype like .flv or .avi, etc. But from appearances, it looks like Moe's program will do the job.

Thanks to everyone for your comments! We'll see how it goes...

I find that impossible to believe. Granted, I'm very picky when it comes to video quality, but you simply cut out 75-90% of the data and expect the same quality.
