I've been looking for a vegas forum for quite awhile (amazing what typing vegas video forums) in google can do for you
Anyways, I'm not a real videoesk person if you might say, but I was recently asked to make a video for my World of Warcraft Guild, as we complete blackwing lair (Any WoW people out there? :P)
I'm using the following programs.
Fraps for capturing footage (I wish there was a better program to caputre footage, but fraps seems to be the only one really.)
Vegas 6.0 (Great program, I don't know a lot but I'm learning fast)
I was reading rendering issues and other such forums and found that I should download Virtual Dub (anyone have a link to where I can download this?)
I'm just working on the introduction right now for the movie (don't have any hard-core BWL footage yet, but used a program called wow-map to cruse through BWL and capture some cool shots.)
Here are my long list of questions.
1: What's the best way to render a file so it's high quality, and good file-size (I'm sure that's a question in itself, but figured I'd ask anyways)
From what I've read, 2nd pass encoding is the best for quality and size, but I'm not exactly sure how to do that, so if this is the best way, then if someone could elaberate I would greatly appreciate it.
I was thinking of rendering as .avi, since that works on mostly all computers (With little codec additions) but any other one I'm open with..
Sorry for the newbish questions, and thank you so much in advance![/u]
