I'm working on video editing on VSDC and my exports are so much larger then the original video when I export it into mp4 format.
All I did to the video was delete the sound from the video and replace it with the same sound which I cleaned up a bit with audacity and exported into wav-format.
The original size of the video was 34MB and the wav-file was about 4MB but the export was over 200MB.
I exported it with the option that the software was for YouTube and set the quality for 1080p.
I don't understand what's going on!
Could it be that my original video is of a lesser quality then 1080?
And the software is adding filler pixels?
The original was a mov-file.
Are these the numbers I should be looking at?
I got a more reasonable file size of 31MB when I exported to avi.
And exporting to mkv is only 41MB.
