A 5 second video rendered in Vegas using native ProRes 4444 format with alpha channel is 1.08GB. The total bitrate is 1,866,118 kbps. Is such a high bitrate really necessary that generates such a large file?
Rendering the same video in VEGAS with the external encoder Voukoder generates a file of only 23MB and with the external encoder HOS a file with only 25MB and the total bitrate is between 38,000kbps and 40,000kbps.
A video with the same specifications in Premiere, using native ProRes 4444 format with alpha channel, is only 12MB. Using the external encoder Voukoder in Premiere generates a file just 14MB. The total bitrate is between 18,000kbps and 23,000kbps.
Can someone explain to me what I'm doing wrong?
