A large sized video file can not only consume a lot of space on your PC or smart device, but it could also be too large to be stored on a DVD or uploaded online. It could be unwieldy and make things difficult. Therefore, you need to learn how to make a video a smaller file. The following steps would take you through the process.
The first step is to find the right software that reduces the size of your video. Then, import the video to this software. Advanced software would make it as easy as a drag and drop function on the required video file. Once the video file is in the software, you can drag it to the software’s timeline.
Next, you can simply cut the length of the video to reduce its overall size. However, a more intuitive method is to remove the unwanted clips from different parts of the video. The software would enable you to reach any part of the video and cut the amount of video length that you want. You can repeat this cutting process on different parts before the job is complete.
Once you make a video smaller size, it is possible to create the final video file in any format. For example, a sophisticated software would allow you to export the final video into a compressed format such as FLV. It is also possible to keep the same format as the original file.
There is another sub-part to reducing the size of the video. This is by reducing the resolution, bit rate and frame rate of the video. You can choose the option and reduce the specific video factor to eventually reduce the overall sizes. Thus, cutting the size of the video file and then reducing these factors can dramatically decrease its size. You can then upload the file onto YouTube or your social profiles, save on your PC or DVD or do anything without wasting your valuable time. Thus, it is possible to reduce the size of a video file by finding the right software and taking the above-mentioned steps.
