Okay, so I'm having 2 problems.
First is that Sony vegas won't import avi files no matter what I do. Is there any way to fix this?
Second is that I can't seem to render other files that I edit at a reasonable size without a loss in quality. I have 3 m4v files that I cut a little bit out of and then throw together. Each are between 320-380 MB. Together, they add up to about 1.02 GB. Yet when I have to choose between a drop in quality or an extreme size when I try to render it. It seems absurd to me that I can't simply cut and paste them without re-encoding/recompressing it. Is there any way?
