Hey Guys, I seem to be hitting a snag in my workflow for this and I think I'm missing one small step somewhere along the way and having someone else look at it might help me out. I just received a Flip Mino HD for Christmas and have shot some small video with it - mainly right now working on a live recording of a band that I was shooting photography for. Just to basically test the little cam out (and possibly compare it to my very rough/lame 5DII footage I attempted earlier last year). Anyway I get the .mp4 out of the Flip and onto my MBP. It is approximately 430MB at this time and the video is about 5:45 minutes long - I didn't cut anything out of the video so it will stay that length throughout the entire process. I bring it into MPEG Streamclip so that I can edit it in FCE in real time with no rendering needed. In MPEG Streamclip I export it as a Quicktime .mov with 100% quality in AIC. Resulting file size is: 1.7GB - makes some sense to me as it is now uncompressed. In FCE I do the Easy Setup with the settings as AIC, 29.97, HDV-Apple Intermediate Codec 720p30 Import my .mov file, slide it to the timeline and I'm able to edit in real time. The only edits I did was desaturate the video into a B/W and then add a minor sepia tone to it (10% opacity) so that it has more of a brown tinge to it then just the B/W. From there I added a small 6 sec title sequence from LiveType and a small approx 3 sec out with my URL at the end (these were superimposed over the video so no time added to it). I exported this from FCE as a Quicktime .mov and new file size is: 1.4GB Clearly that is way too large to upload to Vimeo and I need to compress it - especially considering that the video is no more than 5:45 mins. So I tried opening the video in HandBrake and HandBrake is not recognizing it so I am unable to compress it. This is where I'm stumped. Have I done something wrong in my first steps so that HandBrake cannot recognize the file? Currently as I'm typing this out I'm now running the file through MPEG Streamclip again to make it into an .mp4 and then going to try to see if I can open that up in HandBrake - just seems like a wasted process at the moment though. Any ideas?
