  • Canopus HQ file size

    I thought the Canopus HQ file size was like 4X that of DV HDV or AVC is'nt it? I just shot a wedding with my new HMC-150s I have about 2:30 of footage =about 16.5 gigs of raw I set Edius up to batch convert to a drive that has 200 gigs avalible on it Edius gives me a warning saying it will run out of drive space. Are Canopus HQ files THAT big? 15X that of AVC?!?!?!

    HD @ online setting is usually about 10-14MB/sec. 16GB for 2 minutes is way too big.

      Sorry im tired that was 2 hours and40 minutes of AVC raw which totaled to 16.5 gig. I thought it should be about70 gigs when done.

        AVC should be around the same datarate as DV (around 25mbps). HQ is more than 100mbps.

        So something must be up with your settings. Use the AVCHD converter instead (Use Online or Standard). It should be around 100GB for 2hr 40 mins.

            My experience converting AVC (Panasonic 17Mbps from HDC-SD100) to HQ is as follows:
            (1) AVC 704MB converts to HQ 5.29GB = x 7.5
            (2) AVC 1.79GB converts to HQ 15.0GB = x 8.4

            I cannot be absolutely sure the AVC and HQ sets are identical clip for clip, as I may have deleted a few bad HQ clips, but it gives a good approximation of my relative file sizes.

            Hope this helps.

              I think I MAY have figured it out, I am not using the highest quality im using HA not PH so my original files would normally be larger maybe thats it when I get bigger cards I can find out for sure.

                I have just converted an AVCHD file from my Sony SR11, recorded at 16Mbps ave, 1920x1080i ( your Panasonic 150 could be higher I think). File size was 10.5G ( about 1 hour and 20mins realtime ) HQ converter at "standard" setting resulted in a file of 57G and on my Quad Core Q9450 took about 45 mins to convert with all 4 cores at 99%. If your HQ converter was set at "Fine" the file would be twice as big again and take longer to convert.

                    Open the converter( double click the icon) there you can set the location for the converted files( top box) next box down there is the conversion controls, open up the settings box and adjust the HQ settings as needed. Check the box to use all available cores.Close and then when you drag the file over the icon it will go to the location you programmed and with the HQ settings that you set. I do this every time I convert to put files into the different location for use in editing.
