I want to achieve something very simple. I have two MP4 clips of about 11 MB each. All I want to do is join them (with a cross fade) and then render the result. I want this result to use identical settings as the source material. Taking the two source clips into account, I expect the outcome to be roughly 22 MB in size. When using the option to set the project settings to the source material, the resulting clip is 116 MB however.
Is there a setting that the result is rendered with identical settings as the source, producing a result with similar quality and size?
I am using Movie Studio Platinum 16 on W10 64 bit
