I was going to ressurect this thread but it looks like you guys beat me to it
Situation: Editing wise, the project is done.
Problem: I keep winding up with a filesize far too large for online distro.
Details: I'm using the settings in A&E's Xvid guide and have been playing around with the kbps, but always ending up with a file ranging from 230-250 MB so I'm perplexed. I'm trying to aim at 150-175 MB. The resized frame is 480x320, but right now I'm seeing how big (and decent looking) a 420x280 will look.
Any thoughts, mates?
