sony vegas 9 platinum
I tried editing my first video last night. It was imported off of a camcorder. Windows brought the video in as a wmv and vegas wouldn't recognize it. Its only 640x480 and a few minutes long. So i used another problem to convert it to an avi but depending on the settings i used, i would either end up with something that vegas wouldn't recognize, or end up with a file that's a couple gigs (when it started out as 34mb.) Having the file being 2gb made its playback all choppy in vegas.
What codec should i use and what settings should i use for framerate etc?
