File too big!!! (2 posts)

Hi - got a strange problem when using Fetch...
I'm preparing video in Final Cut Pro (OS9) and sending it out as an MPEG2 file to an OSX system. The MPEG2 files generally send fine across a network using Fetch.
HOWEVER(!!) one of the MPEG2 files is about 3GB and whenever I use MacBinary it tells me that the file is too big. Is this a problem with MacBinary or Fetch?
Pleases help!! Sending it as raw data loses the chapter markers.

The MacBinary format only handles files up to 2GB.
If you lose information sending as Raw Data there must be information in the file's resource fork. You could encode the file with StuffIt before sending it, and decode it on the other side -- that should preserve resource fork information.
