Technical question

Filed under: Geek-related issues — Lex @ 8:05 pm

I've just had a piece of digital video mutate into The Monster That Ate My Hard Drive, and I'm not quite sure why.

I started with a 2.9-meg Windows Media clip, 29.9fps, stereo, about 2 minutes, 40 seconds in length. I imported it into Adobe Premiere to convert it to QuickTime. I then exported it as a QuickTime clip — single audio track, 16kbps sampling; single video track, 320×240 pixels, same as in the original; same pixel ratio.

And the resulting file was 350 megabytes.

Obviously, he understated, I am doing something wrong. Anyone got any idea what that might be?

Thanks in advance.
