So, I am going to make sure this stays away from rule #1 for not only myself (which I am not having an issue with here) but for others who post after.
So, I have videos I have recorded on my Sony a65. I had them in AVCHD format at 1080/60. I converted them with handbrake into mp4 @720/23.976. All is well. So then, I wanted to crop the beginning and the end for when I futz around with the camera. So, I load up Windows Movie Maker. After loading the video for 15 minutes or so, I trim the beginning and the end and click on save. The file jumps from 600 megabytes up to 1.2 gigabytes. So, what's going on here and how can I fix it? Everything is too simple for me to make my own settings (or is there a way I just am not seeing?).
