Okay I have a bout 55 minutes of video that I'd like to put on a DVD. It was shot with a Cannon ZR65 and captured with WinDVD Creator which came with my computer. I believe it captured as Mpeg2 and I captured it in several segments. I used VEGAS 6 to put the clips together then rendered it as a Quicktime file. Apparently this was a mistake as the end file took many hours and ended up being 122 gigs long.
So, when wanting to put the end result to DVD, What is the best format to capture in so I can use programs like Vegas 6, After effects etc? Also what is the best format to render to using Vegas 6? I will be using Adobe Encore to make the actual DVD.
