    You on about this thread?

    Tryed loads of settings to be honest (including changing the bitrate), tryed MP4, WMV etc..

    I've followed loads of tutorials over the web after searching deep, and the only solution I thought, would be to buy a HD cam-corder, as it has better resolution (pixels) ?

    Here's a link to some instructions on how to get the best quality video on YouTube. It's mainly FCP focused but any software has the same settings as those mentioned.

    That's my opinion. If you don't like it I have others

    System: Apple Macbook Pro 17, and an external Freecom 500GB eSATA drive.
    Software: Final Cut Studio 2 (FCP 6, Motion 3, Soundtrack Pro 2, Color, DVD Studio Pro 4, Compressor 3), Sonicfire Pro 4.5
    Favourite Resources: Findsounds.com, Free DVD menus, Ken Stone's FCP Page, Wikivid

    How do I get "H.264" on Sony Vegas? I can't seem to find it..

    (And with the Macbook Pro, I wouldn't have enough money, and probably wouldn't make a difference?)
