Thread: hate to ask this but...

  1. #1

    Default hate to ask this but...

    i know this has probably been covered countless time, but it's not in the sticky so here goes. why is it, that when i combine seven video clips, all about 3megs in size, i get a final product of 100megs?? converting to mpeg, btw, using vegas 5. vegas wants to by default, double the width and height of the vid, but even when i change the settings to match the original vids, my file is freakin huge. why is that? and what can i do about it. i thought mpeg was a compressed file type.

    many thanks

    That because:

    1) the several input files were encoded using an MPEG4 codec and/or
    2) the bitrate was a lot lower in your input files.

    ok so now i'm encoding with the same bit rate as the original files, but now it's taking over twice as long. this video thang is confusing. what's this about mpeg4?

    emcoding video -is a tricky thing - its depends on how complex the pixel build of the pictre is, formats, bitrates adn so on - render times are very difficult to calculate unless you are running a stupidly fast system
