post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hey everyone
i have a gopro hd hero 2 camera and i am using sony vegas 11 to edit clips, but i cant find the best render settings to have a good quality
recorded clips with gopro - uneditted are great, looks really good, but after i render them from vegas, they look pretty bad, i mean quality is .. not horrible, just much worse than original file
i would like to know the best settings, i dont care about size... quality is all i need
thanks for tips

Posting here to remind myself to help you, as I help my friends with their units from time to time(as I also borrow them tongue.gif). Would just link the guides I've helped with but it's pretty simple, just be prepared to read a bit as I tend to ramble. smile.gif

Sorry mate, been trying to get to this, had a crazy weekend...

Well, I'll be general and then I'll get specific when the situation calls for it.

I also want to state that I still play around with my render settings from time to time, but these are the most consistent for my media.

Starting RIGHT off though; after you import your media with Vegas, you have to disable resampling, see below:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Don't worry, you don't have to do that clip by clip. Once you get all the media you want on the timeline, just click the first one and shift click the last clip, right click and do the same thing. thumb.gif

The reason you have to do that is, if you leave it enabled and render it out, it causes "ghosting" (image blurring, in a sense) with movements in the video, especially if you try to go for high framerate capture or use shots with a lot of movement in them.

That said, my quick and easy settings for my camera footage are like so:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

(Getting there by File - Render As - then Selecting a template and modifying it. - Have to do this until you create your own template.)

Change resolution and framerate as needed.

For Audio, I select PCM Uncompressed, 16 bit depth @ 44100hz, Stereo. Change this to your preference, pictured is mine.

I use the Lagarith codec because it is lossless; gives great quality but large file sizes. Great for archiving video for multiple purposes, but not for uploading; even if you have a monstrous upload speed tongue.gif.

Because of this, I import the file previously rendered into another program (usually virtualdub) and save it from there as an x264 video in avi format. - x264 Being another codec, or a final, "production" codec if you will, compresses your video down to nice sizes, but you have to play around with the settings for it to look presentable to you.

Here are mine: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Hopefully I haven't confused you too much. smile.gif

There are way to do all of this from within Sony Vegas, but I believe all versions after 8 (or maybe including 8 but I know I've done it a few times before it started giving me problems after select updates) have problems handling the x264 codec - Out of habit, I don't find it wise to do all of this in one fell swoop as it's easy to get confused and overwrite/delete your source media.

PLEASE ask me questions about this, I'll be more than willing to clarify for you. smile.gif

Sounds awesome, meant to have my own by now but got tied up as always. Maybe I'll be able to pick one up the next time I ship out thumb.gif

You can avoid rendering an intermediate file by frame & audioserving the video with Debugmode FrameServer. Here's a guide: http://www.bubblevision.com/underwater-video/Vegas-YouTube-Vimeo.htm
