Thread: sony vegas pro 8 which option

  1. Default sony vegas pro 8 which option

    ok, guys i have been rendering for a while now all using the default settings from vegas pro 8

    i finished one project and the size of my avi files mb888 , when i took it to a better recording studio, they asked me why my file's size is small compare to their files..
    he had a song almost 5 mins durations, just like mine, but the format of his file was quick time and it was like 2.8gb....i asked him there i selected the wrong output file system, in my case is AVI for windows player, but he didn't wanna help i guess..
    so what you think what is the best file format or setting to render your final project b4 you burn it on a DVD ?

    oh, so you are saying, its not the correct way to render as a AVI file ?
    what i mean by that is, when i finish a project with my sony vegas pro 8, then i render the file and obviously i render it as AVI for windows and THEN I USE A PROGRAM LIKE ADOBE ENCORE DVD to create the actual dvd ....
    so, you mean by creating an AVI file, instead of mpeg file , i dont have or generate the highest quality ?

    many thanks.

    I think what CP is refering to is that if you render as mpeg2 in Vegas you have a lot more control over tweaks than if you render as an AVI and let Sony DVD Architect render that to mpeg2.

    I don't know what flexibility Encore and other DVD authoring packages have, as I only use DVD Architect.

    Whatever you use to create your final Mpeg, it's good practice to reate a finished AVI first as this will be yur highest quality archive/master copy from which you can create your DVD/iPod/YouTube versions.

    So, I follow the practice learne dfrom others here of rendering an avi in Vegas. Then rendering an mpeg 2 and an ac3 from that avi, again in Vegas. Then DVD Architect has to do no rendering at all (apart from fiddly menus etc)

    ok, so i was on the right track as far as creating an AVI first then recreate a mpeg2 out of it , coz dvd making programs can work better with mpeg2 ?

    one more thing that this friend of mine told me is compressions, he said he doesnt use compressions at all when rendering a video file, i am more of pro audio guy, so i know what compression does in audio, but have no idea what it does in video...any idea?

    If you do the rendering in Vegas you have control like Tim says. By working in Vegas you are able to set a Varible bit rate (VBR) Meaning faster action, or more stuff going on gets a higher bitrate and things like static shots and talking heads get lower bitrates.. If you let DVDA or Encore do it everything gets the same treatmeant.. so if it has to be a bit rate of 6 everythings a 6.. I set the the max at 8 and the minimum at 2 then depending on the lenght of the video set the ave.. in this example 6.. so it would be 8,6,2 if the Video is under 60-65 minutes then a constant bitrate of 8 (CBR) is fine...

    I stick with a max of 8m the new players can handle upto 9-9.5 but the older players cant handle it, some can but not all.. and with me I have to make sure they play on all dvd players... If you know it'll be only watched on newer players go with 9 if not then 8.. personaly you wont see much diffrence between 8 and 9.. If I can help with anything else let me know.. good luck

    bit rate

    min...... max rate with AC-3
    -70 .... 8.0
    75 .... 7.834
    80 .... 7.333
    85 .... 6.890
    90 .... 6.497

    over 90 minutes I'd put it on 2 disc..
