Default Total file size in export que windows

Many clients want the final exports of a wedding to fit into a 32GB flash drive. The export queue shows the estimated file size for each file but does not show the TOTAL of all files in the queue and I constantly have to calculate the file sizes with a calculator.

Is there a way in EDIUS to show the final estimated size that the files in queue will take on disk? (Like "TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works" does)

Why oh Why a 32GB - why not a 64GB which costs a few peanuts more? Surely with what you charge for a wedding another few $€ is not going to break the bank.

I don't work with couples. I work with over 100 videographers and photographers; I only do the editing. Most of them purchase 500 flash drives at a time, with their company logo engraved on them with a nice metal or wood box. I guess the difference between the 32 and 64 is significant to them when dealing with large purchases.

I use the disk burner as a calculator

place all your sections on a timeline and mark in and out, open diskburner and choose Blu-ray DL and then set bitrate in video tab until you have around 29GB or less total size (never fill a stick to the max)

exit disk burner and use the calculated bitrate

I never used the disk burner in Edius but I had already thought of something similar... putting all the parts in one sequence and putting that in the export que and that would show me the final result of all.

There is one problem though.
I deliver 2 or 3 files. The first file would be the shorter version of the wedding that includes the highlight clip and other shortened parts of the wedding. This file is usually about 45 minutes to an hour.

Since this highlight file is more important than the rest, I try to make it a higher bitrate than the rest (12-18). The other files I play around with the bitrate until I get it to fit (usually 9-15 - aiming of course for as high as I can go)

So it wouldn't help to put ALL parts in one sequence to calculate.
