Thread: Rendered files are too large!

  1. #1

    Default Rendered files are too large!

    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!

    Are you going to keep this on your HDD? or make DVD?. You could try MPEG2.

    It is best to keep a DV render of any wk as a master copy. 1 gig for 4 mins is normal.

    I then make different versions from that. If you insist on only keeping a smaller copy then a wmv version with a variable bit rate with an average rate of around 2mbit will give the same quality as a dv version.
