So uploading HD files to Vimeo has got me thinking.
Normal HD projects on my hard drive take up between 8 and 30+ GB, untouched (or edited but not compressed). Vimeo uploads are limited to 500 mb. Now I know Vimeo HD is 1280x720 and even for those dimensions, not the best HD in the world, but it's still a huge difference in file size.
I'm about to get a 1TB hdd, but I know I'll eat it up in a matter of months (I have to make a habit of exporting back to miniDV).
So just out of curiosity, how many of you keep uncompressed files? If you keep files for everyday viewing on your computer (or via your ps3/360 to your HDTV) what compression settings do you use? What is your HD compromise?
