What do you do when you hit the "render as" button? Vegas Pro comes packed with a variety of file-types and codecs to choose from. Tech Dive walks through which codec does what, and what may be right for you.
Hello, I'm relatively new this iteration of Vegas..(Vegas pro 15). But, I have a video project this weekend and the preferred render settings are puzzling me. Below is the requirement format that is being asked for. Now, I've tried rendering a few small clips in mov. and a few other formats...but they always look terrible. My question is, is there a variation of setting on VP15 that can produce good quality audio and video and be usable with the clients Mac-centric Media profile?
Thank you in advance.
(preferred) a self-contained Quicktime file (mov)
- codecs for HD: Apple ProRes, DVCProHD, HDV, Motion JPEG-A, or H.264 (with a recommended data rate of at least 16Mbps)
- codecs for SD: Apple ProRes, DV-NTSC, Motion JPEG-A, or H.264 (with a recommended data rate of at least 16Mbps)
- resolution: HD (1280x720 preferred) .1080 accepted if files compressed to reasonable size. SD accepted
I used Vegas Pro for many years, I produce music videos as hobby. I try to make decent videos using Chroma Key. I use many effects including some VST from UAD Audio effects, they take a lot of memory.
I am now using Vegas 16, when I use many effects, the video on the Preview stutters, will a better video card makes a difference? I am using NVIDIA GT 640. The computer is a CYBERPOWER COOL MASTER with 32 GB memory. I have Sony Vegas 16 on the Internal drive, I use an SSD external drive for my working files and storage of finished product. I also have two more drives for storage.
