File size estimate

Darillian posted this 02 December 2015

When setting the export format and quality, it would be cool to see how large the output file will roughly be.

Intuitively I set the sliders on H264 to "Best" and "Highest Quality" (both to the right), and of couse this led to a 4 min 720p file that was around 3,5 GB. Is there any way to quantify what exactly the sliders change (the first one, 'fast vs. best', is more clear than the quality one)

It is not possible to estimate this correctly for all formats because compression works differently for codecs. We prefer not show incorrect information rather then confusing user
