I have a question about "Sony Vegas Movie Studio" export settings for uploading videos (good quality) to “You Tube” and other sites video sharing sites like Vimeo.
Presently I am using WMM 2.1 and have tried every export setting and tested side by side on you tube.
WMM2.1 has 2 basic export settings:
DV-AVI(PAL) – Least compressed
WMV – Varying degrees of compression
All the other choices are different types of WMV. I have tried them all (a lot!!!)
And I even went to www.pappajohn.org who is a WMM expert/legend (Microsoft (MVP) to get his free special “You Tube” specific export templates, which are again highly compressed WMV files.
Now after all my tests including Pappa Johns specific You tube export settings …for me the best by a fair way (quality wise) is when I export as:
This is the export setting I used for all my test videos by the way.
Now I appreciate this is the biggest file and least compressed so it should be better
But I also appreciate that You Tube will take it and compress it to meet their specific standards anyway.
Must point out the file size is not a issue for me with regards storing video files at home and also the time to upload to “ You Tube” I am after the best quality not the best in terms of saving storage space at the expense of quality!!
Now my good old mate has just got a trail version of Vegas Movie Studio for me on his really good P.C to compare the export settings that Vegas Movie Studio has for me to compare on “You Tube” with my WMM2.1 DV-AVI (Pal) present export setting I am using.
This will be good for me to know for the future when I can get a new P.C that will run Vegas properly compared to my old one.
Now guys there are so many different export settings in “Vegas Movie Studio” under “Render” and to be honest it is all gobbledegook to me !!!
So my first question is
1 - Will “Sony Vegas Movie Studio” ‘s export settings out perform my WMM2.1 DV-AVI export settings I am using now in terms of quality for online uploading/viewing (You Tube/Vimeo) ?
2- Out of all the export settings in ”Vegas Movie Studio” which is the best to go for if I want the best quality for uploading to You Tube/Vimeo etc and if I am not bothered about file size and upload time???
Oh yea …..My videos are shot on my Panasonic NVGS-400 mini DV Camcorder (PAL)

Thank guys you will save me so much wasted time as I will have to try all of them otherwise to see for myself.
