Alrighty, if anyone can help me with this it would be amazing. I have a Canon Vixia HFR10. I record everything in standard play. According to the camera guide, 2h and 20m worth of footage will amount to 8 GB total. Yet, when I transfer footage to Final Cut Express, it takes up...needless to say, a lot more than that. One 33-second clip took up 0.3 GB. One less than 5-minute project took up a few gigabytes by itself. I'm working on a massive 42-page script, and we're filming it now. I don't want to upload ALL that footage until I fix this memory issue. Is there an option here I'm missing that would make memory reasonable? ALSO: In a Final Cut Express project, all done, if I deleted the clips from their bins, would the project itself crumble and not work? I'm thinking space. Thanks again!
