So I have been playing with some editing in Final Cut Pro X, and had a question to the other users out there. I made a 4 minute video with footage off of my GoPro, and it ended up being over 1.2 GB in size. Obviously with this size I cannot post to YouTube or anything really. Is there a way to compress the .mov file, or what do I need to do to make it smaller?

Try Vimeo - I think they allow bigger files. Plus - as people on the board helped me earlier in the year, YouTube will not let you post if you use music that has a copyright - Vimeo doesn't check.

Vimeo will allow HD video, but limits how often you can post large files unless you pay for membership. I like Vimeo better than YouTube.

I'm not fimilar with Final Cut, but IMovie will allow you to choose the movie size...small, med, large when you finalize / render your project. If iMovie does this, there is no doubt high end Final cut also has a similar option

If you are shooting HD with your GoPro, Vimeo is only the way to go. Pay for the upgrade. It's well worth it if you are going to do many projects. You Tube really bites. I had most of my music removed from my videos on Youtube and they have a pretty strict limit on download size.

There should be a quicktime compression in final cut, but if you want to leave the file as an HD file then compression may not be allowed.

quicktime files are generally pretty large i think uncompressed. try saving it as an mpeg4 file with a constant bit rate at the max. I use sony vegas so its a bit different but that is what I have used to upload to vimeo, and still gives a great picture.

You could run your finished file through Handbrake and make it smaller if you really want to post it up to YouTube. Otherwise, like most have already said, start using Vimeo.
