    Arrow Sony Vegas 7 and H.264


    i am using sony vegas 7. I have a 20min film that i want to upload to a FTP server and i want it around 200-300mb but keeping it pretty high quality/reslolution (640x360). Is there anyway in Vegas that i render my film in H.264 (.mov) codec or get a plugin do i can do it? If not is there an alternative codec i can use that has the same quality and keeps it small like the H.264 codec? Help would be great....

    I think the H.264 is the same as the MPEG-4. If so Vegas 7 can render to "MainConcept AVC/AAC (.mp4)" select it from the "Save As Type" drop down.

    Hope this helps.

    A bit rate of about 1 to 1.5 mbit/s will give you the size you want and using either the wmv or h264 codec the quality will be as good as the original to all but hte most fussy.

    I want to have it as a .mov file. The MainConcept AVC/AAC codec makes it low quality and the resolution is bad. Is there anyway i can render a .mov file with the H.264 codec? Or is there anything very similar i can do it iwth that will keep the quality but keep the size down?

    You are not setting things up properly when you render. Make sure you set the bit rate and res, use vbr and 2 pass.

    To my eyes the main concept gives very good results - similar to wmv, a bit less 'artifacty' (!) but a bit softer.

    Set the res of the main concept to dv res, set the bit rate to 1meg, 2 meg max and it will look great.

    Not sure how to get h264 into a .mov package with vegas - why not use h263, at that comparitively high bit rate it will look fine.

    Once you create your MP4 file, you can use Apple's Quicktime PRO ($29.99 US) to save it as a MOV file
