I've really struggled to find a good answer through the FAQ's so I thought I'd put this to the forum.

I'm sure this is fairly basic stuff for all of you, so please be nice!

First issue - HD Upload, Can't get the file under 500MB:
Having trouble uploading any HD footage. Following the H.264 codec guidelines I cant seem to get my footage under the 500MB limit to upload. Also, I'm not sure really what is the best resolution to be uploading here. If I do 1280 x 720 using the H.264 codec the file always seems to be over the 500MB mark. Am I doing something wrong? I'm using Premier Pro CS2, so if somebody could share some upload settings that would be great

Go Pro & video Interlacing:
All of my GoPro footage looks terrible, I've had a look online at how interlacing works and how I can fix it and all of the answers seem vastly complicated. Is there a simple way I can go about deinterlacing the footage? Do I need to do this?

Many Thanks!

Have you tried the settings shown in either the CS5 or CS4 compression settings tutorial videos found in the right hand panel here:

vimeo.com/help/compression

I use Premiere Pro CS5 and export using the recommended H264 settings for 1280x720p - I have varying length videos here - only one is above 500MB and that is an 18 minute doco @ 652 MB, there is an 11 minute doco that comes in at 350MB and anything under that length easily fits under 500MB.

A 2'30" video I exported as both 1280x720p and 1920x1080p ended up 64.5MB for the 1280x720p and 102MB for the 1920x1080p.
File size is directly affected by bitrates used in compression - if your bitrate is higher than that recommended for upload here: 5,000 – 10,000 kbps (720p HD) / 10,000 – 20,000 kbps (1080p HD) it will dramatically increase your file size.
