I have a 'true widescreen' DV camcorder that records the video using a pixel width of 1.4568 and I have created a short film that I have exported as an AVI with the PAL Widescreen DV Codec.
However, the file size is too large (as expected with DV video) and I want to compress it to make a WMV. However, there are no presets in Vegas (I also have Windows Media Encoder which may help, but I coulnd't see a widescreen mode) for WMV in the export tab for widescreen video.
Ideally I want high video and audio quality as I only need to fit about 3 minutes of video on my 256MB pen drive - it does not need to be small enough for web download/streaming. The presets for WMV are also in 640x480 and not 720x576.
Can someone recommend the best way to export my video in a form that will be compatible with most PCs (i.e. WMV or similar) and that will produce a smaller file size.
