I have just finished editing my first video. But when I render it to my hard drive, the size of it is 940 MB! The type of video I had wanted it to be was an AVI, and I tried WMV since it was smaller, but it lost some quality. My video is only 4 mins long. I've seen plenty of videos made using Vegas that were longer than mine and much smaller.
I know it's not the files I'm using, though I am using VOB & IFO files instead of the common AVI's, but I tested what AVIs I had and that one came out to the same amount! The audio I'm using is MP3.
Is there any way to make it a smaller size without losing quality? I know all about the custom settings you can use, but I'm a noob at this and I'm not sure what the best settings are.
Much appreciated to anyone who can help me out on this!
Thanks in advance!
