Does anyone here use Sony vegas to render their GoPro footage?
I have been trying to get the video at a reasonable quality for youtube etc but i seem to end up sacrificing quality for filesize or vice versa. :madman:

Failing that, does anyone know if theres a way to make Windows Movie maker for vista work in the same way as the XP version as there are no where near as many rendering options on the vista version. :rolleyes:

Any tips would be great :thumbsup:

I'm taking a chance on some free fully functional "licensed and activated" sony vegas 9 pro software I just obtained --- so I'm going to try and make something from a variety of sources. The on line sony tutorials are pretty decent too.

A white paper I read on the MS site actually shows a good % of such software is "clean". If I end up FUBARRED, well I guess I'll just get more practice at doing clean OS installs---here's crossing my fingers... :)

Dude, you need to get a disc imaging program like Acronis True Image or Norton Ghost.

You install a clean OS, install whatever software you want, then use the program to "take an image" of your disc.

Then, if you screw up your operating system, or it gets so junked up it won't hardly run anymore, or for whatever reason you need to, you can restore the "image" to the hard drive in about 20 minutes or so by booting from a disk and imaging the hard drive.

So much easier when it's time for a re-install.

I use Sony Vegas for my GoPro Hero Wide footage. I upload to vimeo instead of youtube and always render my files as 1280x720 so that vimeo uploads it as their "HD". There is a big difference from rendering it as a 512x384. I don't know if vimeo wants people to do this, but I think it makes a big difference.

I go to "Properties" and select 1280x720, select "Best" under quality, and select "None" under deinterlace method. I render the files as 1280x720 WMV files.

Best of luck,
Bri

Thanks for reminding me of that option. It sound like a good thing to do right about the end of October afer Windows 7 is set up right.
