    I've heard that Imovie can export video files in 360p, 540p, or 720p. Since the ipod touch records in 720p, I would like to know how much file size it would save if u exported the video in 360p. Thanks in advance

    actually, its 1/4 since the 1/2 is talking about the vertical pixels but the horizontal pixels are also changed but widescreen vs 4:3 also must be considered
    and audio is still the same

    720p-39.5mb
    360p-12.6mb

    Ok thnx, so it's about 1/3. So if it takes 4.5 gb an hour, that would change to around 1.5. Still not great but it's better. Is there any way to change the bit rate or framerate or any other settings that would make the file size smaller? Thnx for them help.

    you shouldn't change framerate ever....

    you could go on a computer to encode audio with HE-ACC 80kbps and use h.263 video
    but idk about iMovie settings

    Well I really want to change the bitrate. I'm going to be taking videos of family guy and south park episodes so I only need about 600kbps bit rate for decent quality. Does anyone know if I can change the bitrate with the imovie app?

    I'd be surprised if you could - it's only an iPhone app for messing around with a camera.

    You are going to tape episodes on your iPod/iPhone?
