I have some footage shot on a Canon Powershot TX1, and am trying to find the best output settings for rendering a project which uses the footage. The objective is to retain all of the original image quality. I'm using Vegas Pro 11.
The captured video is in the form of HD .avi files, and shows the following specs in the Windows file properties:
Frame height: 720
Frame width: 1280
Data rate: 40298kbps
Total bitrate: 41710kbps
Frame rate: 30 fps
Audio sample rate: 44KHz
Could someone suggest the best Vegas output template/settings to retain the original quality while generating an output file which is comparable in size to the source clips?
