Recommended HD Render options for Sony VegasPosted on August 7th, 2010 No comments
I’ve been struggling to find the best settings to use to save my edited videos. My video camera takes 1280×720 HD footage and I edit with Sony Vegas. There are many formats to choose from and I want a balance of low disk usage and high quality. I found this post and the settings recommend appear to be work well. After selecting Sony AVC I select the “Internet 16:9 HD 30p template and verify the settings as described (except Audio format is ACC).
Save as type “Sony AVC”
Video Rendering Quality: Best
Frame Size: Custom
Width: 1280 Height: 720
“Uncheck” Allow source to adjust frame size
Entropy Encoding: CABAC
“Uncheck” Allow source to adjust frame rate
Field Order: None (Progressive)
Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.0000
Bitrate (bps): I recommend anywhere from 4,000,000 to 6,000,000 for Vimeo. Only go below for longer videos.
Sample Rate: 48,000 Hz
Bit Rate: 128,000
RESULT: quality indistinguishable from the original. and if you wanna push it even further, add a ‘light shrapening’ effect to your footage, and the outcome will be EVEN BETTER than your original MTS file quality.
SIZE you ask? between 45 to 60% of the original MTS size.
The output format is the perfectly universal and usable MP4.
