Well I just started editing video on my mac these past couple weeks. Before I used sony vegas on XP and reallly liked it. I tried my hand a Final Cut Pro but I disliked how it doesnt have a scene detection and wont clip the footage up for you. I bought premiere and after acouple days of using it I started to like it. Today was the first day I rendered what Ive edited and the file size is huge and the quality is awful. I exported a 3min movie in a .mov and the file size is 700mb. I rendered at 320x240 (which is what I always used in Vegas) and normally the file size was 20-30mb and the quality was alot better. Does anyone have any tips or something to get better quality. I can deal with the file size but the video looks 100x better in the preview screen in adobe then after its rendered. I can link you all to the video if you need an example of how bad it looks.
