    Help Exporting

    Hey Champs,


    I'm just having a problem exporting my project.

    When I bring up the export settings, I only have the choice of exporting it as a fast quicktime (Which compresses the video down to about the quarter of the size and is as grainy as hell) or exporting it as just a normal file.


    The normal file is 660mB and looks great when I put it on youtube...but it has no sound and doesn't read the top layer of my vision.


    What can I do to export it at the full Mb size but include the audio and top layer of vision?


    Any help would be greatly appreciated...I'm guessing I have to download a compressor that will become apart of my export settings? But I'm too much of a n00b to really know :-[

    Just to clarify, are really using "Free DV"?  If so, the export options may be limited.  Also that free version was discontinued many years ago ....

    (Edit ) If not using Avid free

    Beside the Export settings there is an "options" box  Click that

    You then get as many options for output as you want.

    When you have the settings you want choose save as and you then have those settings as a new export template for next time.

    I think one of the 90+ tutorials on the forum here is on exporting from Avid

    The export options for free dv are limited, but not THAT limited. Once you get the export screen, click on "format options" You should get a range of quicktime options. Some of the more popular include: "Animation" which is essentially uncompressed- produces huge files. DV- PAL or NTSC depending on your region (I mostly use this) There's minimal quality loss usually- since Free DV is editing in DV format anyway.

    Or if you want a smaller, more compressed file, you can try mp4 (and change the size to eg 320 x 240 for the web)

    Make sure audio AND video export are checked...

    Thanks guys, your help is greatly appreciated.


    I'll give this a try when I get home.


    I know free DV has been discontinued but I downloaded it ages ago and like the I don't want to fork out hundreds of dollars for the full overhaul.


    I'm currently editing videos I downloaded off youtube (legal ones of course) yeah...hopefully should work.


    Thanks again.
