i do a little bit of video work on the side, not too much so not very familiar with all these formats and things.

edited and rendered in final cut on mac

the video is 44 minutes long and 17 gig in 720p

i bought a 32 gig flash drive but apparently i found out that they only work in fat32 format on mac and that will limit the file size to 4 gig. so i'm transferring it to an external hard drive then putting it on my windows laptop, then onto the flash drive. Video is playing choppy on my laptop???

any easier way for me to deliver this 17g video to my customer?

You're delivering a 720p file that is 50Mbit/s. That's just plain ridiculous and isn't going to play well on anything short of a top-shelf computer without some kind of hardware-acceleration (which many computers have these days, but still).

720p can be typically be pushed down to 5-6 Mbit/s in H.264 without any noticeable quality loss, possibly lower depending on the content.

Heck no; compress the crap out of that video in Compressor... Even blu-ray disks run about 15-25Mbit/s tops.


...Unless, of course, your "customer" is a network; in which case it would pay to give them the source data. Format the USB as a mac-native HFS+ drive to get big data on there in that case; any respectable network should have macs in house. (crazy big assumption on my part)

If it's a wedding video, you probably want to deliver it to your "customer" in a viewable form for them. Cut a Bluray disk, that's the easiest route for you and the most useful for them.

I don't work with a Mac, only Windows with Vegas Pro and Premiere Pro. I can help you with those, but I'm clueless with Mac-based applications. Someone on this forum can help you, I'm sure.

Good luck with it, it's not rocket science, you can do it !

James Cameron is a bit of a nut, though, right? :)

Ha ha, ok, let me rephrase that - Most blurays are around 15~30Mbps. And yes he's a nut. 50Mbps is considered "source transparent" which is why few cameras shoot over 50Mbps long-GOP or 100Mbps I-frame.

Anyways, I have FCPX/Compressor too, and looking at the options there it doesn't seem too difficult to get good compression going. Mac stuff is supposed to "just work" right? :lol:

Just go to Disc Burning -> H.264 for Blu-ray, drag that onto the project, in the inspector window go to the Encoder tab, click on the little gear next to bit rate, and enter something like 12mbps avg./20mbps max.; this'll get you 5.4GBper hour of source material.

Or under MPEG files use the "MPEG-2 Program stream, 15mbps" preset as-is, should play back on any computer made in the last 5+ years.

before you buy a blu-ray burner, make sure your client has a blu-ray player. would be a bummer if they didn't and you'd already bought the burner. Maybe a dvd would be more universally accessible?
