    Default quick software question...

    Hi,

    I am looking for a program to compress my movie files. I understand by lowering the megabites you lower the quality. I am using sony vegas 6. When I render my video file about 1 minute with mpeg2 encodement, it comes out to about 33 megs. I am looking for an encoder which would take that 33 meg file and shrink it ot about 2 megs so I can link it on the web. Is there a setting to adjust in vegas to do this?

    thanks in advance,
    nick

    You need to use an MPEG4 codec such as WMV, Xvid or DivX.

    Have you worked with all of these? Which do you find to be the most reliable to use? Which do you recommend?

    thanks marc

    Xvid is the techies choice. Chances are you won't understand the options, but techies love it. DivX is a commerical choice, but not universally supported by windows without downloading the relevant codec (a user may not have the relevant codec). WMV is the natural choice for the non-technical and virtually guaranteed to play on XP.
