I have a 90 minute feature project in FCS 2 that I want to export as a quicktime .mov file. My project was shot on a JVC Everio GZ-HD7 at the FHD setting. It was converted to the DVC Pro 1080i60 codec using Mpeg Streamclip before being imported into FCS 2. I know the basics of exporting .movs, and I know how to burn to DVD. I know that if I export as a self-contained .mov, the file will be much bigger, but will work on other computers without all the original source footage. When exported as a self contained .mov the file size is about 78 gb. When exported as a non-self contained .mov the file size is just over 1gb It's my understanding that when I export the movie as a non-self contained .mov the file is considerably smaller, but in my experience, the file won't work on other computers because it's still referencing the original source footage. That's my understanding of self-contained vs. not self-contained. Is this correct? What I'd like to be able to do is create a self-contained .mov that is small enough for me to burn to a DVD-R as a file, so another party can import it into their computer for use with their editing system. I've tried exporting the .mov as non-self contained, to create a small file, then re-importing the new file into FCS 2 and then re-exporting it as self-contained in the hopes that even though it's self contained it will be referencing only the smaller file, rather than all the original footage, thereby decreasing the file size.? Should this work, or does it ultimately reference the original footage? Bottom line, how do I create a self contained .mov that's not massive in size? Thanks!
