View Full Version : Chan skim
04-09-2009, 02:52 PM
Hey guys, it's been a while since I posted on here. Been kind of busy, but I recently bought a new video camera so I will be able to make videos again. (My old camera broke so I've been video-less for a while)
The handy cam I have now films in HD and I use Sony Vegas 8 to edit, but the video comes out to be a HUGEEEE file like 700 megabytes and idk how to deal with that. So I dubbed the video's quality down a ton to be a smaller file and it turned out kind of bad..but does anyone know how to fix that problem? I can't deal with 700 megabyte videos! Well, like I said, I just bought a new camera and wanted to film, no matter how bad the waves were (and it gets pretty flat in the video) but other than that, enjoy.

What format are you rendering it as? If you play around with the settings you may find some decent compression. A setting that I've started using that works pretty good for rendering files to put on websites is as follows:
Video Rendering Quality: Best
Whatever it was set at
CBR, WMV 9, HD (1280x720), Pixel Aspect Ratio of 1.0, 29.97fps 5sec keyframes, 8 sec buffer, 90 sharpest
Bit Rate (really important for size):
This compressed a 3 min vid of mine into about 100mb with not too much loss in quality. I'm sure there are better ones but I haven't had time to really test out more, and this works well enough for me because once it gets on Vimeo for streaming it looks fine.

I think with HD on it does look a little better (for the clips that were actually shot with the new camera). What you might want to make sure when compressing it this way though is that you're working in a widescreen mode so you don't get the stretched, or squeezed aspect ratio like what happened. You can change it under File -> Properties and then in the Video tab there are a bunch of presets. You can change it at any time without really losing anything you edited which is nice, but some additional generated media might not work. I'd say if you're shooting with a Sony "HD" then you're probably best editing with the HDV 1080-60i template unless you know the exact format you're shooting on, then select that instead. Yeah... something like that...
