I am new to the forums so please if this is in the wrong section, forgive me.
Onto the problem. I am recording gameplay with a friend. Using FRAPS and Audacity as the capture software. For the video editing itself I am using Sony Vegas Pro 11.0.
As FRAPS records segments of your gameplay and saves them usually at 5 minutes per set. The problem is that I am trying to find the best possible render settings and the files are too big. I don't save them as .avi but as .mxf. The piece of video I want to render is about 4 and a half minutes long. When rendered the size is about 850MB. These videos go onto youtube and as per usual the upload speed is painfully slow. It does work but takes it's sweet time.
The video capture setting are as follows:
Can anybody tell me how to render them in good quality without the massive file size. All the videos together are about 2 hours long and they will need to be cut to 10 minutes for youtube.
My current render setting for the capture settings above are:
HD 720-50p (1280x720, 50.000fps)
Frame Rate: 50.000 (Double Pal)
Pixel Format: 8-bit
When I select render I chose the HD EX 1280x720 -50P
option from the Sony MXF Drop down menu.
Are these setting correct for my recorded project and is the file size okay for the file I am rendering with the above settings.
Thank you for your time.
