I bought a decent camera (Sony XDCAM) however I have a problem with the output file size. The .MTS files it makes work fine in my editor, and they create the quality I need, but the 2 gig per 10 minute of footage file size is killing our transfer time.
The quality of my end product is nowhere near this so I know I am shooting way way over the top for what I need to achieve my desired end product.
I look at the settings and I see 1080/50p PS, FX and FH or /25p of the same as above FX and FH or 720/50p FX, FS and HQ
I want to film seminars from the back of the room using the zoom ring on the lens.
All works ok, but the 2 gig per 10mins is killing us. How can I reduce the file sizes to a more workable size?
