media Cleaner clip compression

    I got a question about compressing a .mov file with media Cleaner 5.
    I have a 5-6 min clip that's currently a 75 MB behemoth, after I clipped it from a longer file.

    Was Mpeg originally, but I clipped/converted using;
    >apply setting>>QT CD-ROM misc>>QT Sorenson CD-ROM high end
    when I tried to convert to QT archival, the file was even larger.

    So...what's the best way to convert the high-end Sorenson clip to a smaller (and i assume lower quality) .mov or .avi file using the Cleaner program?


    Any help much appreciated. :help:

    Download rate

    Choose a different DL speed in the sorenson tab i.e 256K/s.
    I presume it is for download.
    CD-rom quality is usually high.

    YMMV

    thanks FWD i figgered it out. there's no specific sorenson tab, but the 'QT progressive' tab give you sm/md/lg options, and i shrunk it to <10MB using small format.
