View Full Version : Rendering out woes

08-19-2004, 04:52 PM
Up until today, everything I have ever rendered out (to edit with) from vegas was an AVI since it's "lossless." Today I did a little experiment where i tried rendering out as .mov and I swear i'm never going back to AVI for editing. I did a side-by-side quality comparison and the MOV looks infinately better. *However* for a 20 second clip, the .mov and avi are both 1.2 Gigs. I know these are insane numbers to edit with.. maybe ive been going about rendering out completley wrong. Can anyone help me find a good render codec to edit with that gives me the quality of the MOV but doesnt take up insane amounts of storage? Thanks!

Yes, I've been blown away by how much smaller WM9 can compress the same footage. Not always by huge amount but almost always a savings.
