Ok....last question for today.

I have tried to save my movie twice (it's about 30 sec) and even at the lowest settings (less than 5 minute render time), my file size is over 50 MG. At a decent size, it's over 300 MG.

What do you use for your settings when saving a movie?

Render it at the quality you want, and then compress it using Handbrake to achieve the desired size.

Quality (1, 2 or 3 Star) will affect file size, but not as much as resolution (360p, 720p etc)

Lumion compresses using MP4, but is set to default settings to maintain the highest quality as a source output.

If users wish to reduce file size (for the same settings they want to use), then they can convert to a lower bitrate using a video editor, or video converter software tool.

When uploading to YouTube or Vimeo, the file will get converted to the quality scheme for those social media services which reduces file size.

ps: please respond to my request in your other topic: Missing Walls?:  Done, thanks.
