Thread: Large Video File?

  1. #1

    Default Large Video File?

    I'm new to making things for AMV Hell, about to submit my first video to one of the Challenges. My question is: is the video size suppose to be so large? I was reading through the guide to submitting and it said to submit the video uncompressed, so, after fiddling around with the options (I have Adobe Premiere Elements and dont have any experience in video editing outside of the actual clip editing), I managed to publish an AVI that didn't look terrible, imo. The thing is, its only 20 seconds long and is 2gb. I have a large hard-drive, so big files aren't a problem for me, but I'm worried I did something wrong and it's too big to submit?

    You should compress it.
    Download Zarx264gui 3.0 and read this guide

    Thanks! Reduced the size by a lot.

    Uh, quick question, what is an MKV? None of my programs seem to play it. Not that it matters, since I'm submitting it to someone who knows, aha.
    Also, thanks for quick response!

    MKV is a container format. You can download various programs, such as VLC, to play them.

    A matroska file, it should be playable with VLC Media Player or Media Player Classic.

    Alternatively, you could compress it to an mp4 file instead.
