What settings are you using when you render?

JetSetWilly said:The original rips themselves are about 1 1/2GB in size each.
JetSetWilly said:Oh, I own the source material, don't worry about that. It's my bad, I worded it wrong. I'd just finished work when I wrote that, and I nearly smashed my face on the keyboard falling asleep :lol:. Anyway, I rip my files straight off the disc using PGCDemux, then encoding it via VirtualDubMod, and it gives a nice, crisp picture, while outputting a file of roughly 1.5GB. The files I've got from the Rocky and Rocky II discs are quite good.
So, 7.5GB sounds about right, then for a 2hr 40min video? Good, I thought I was doing something wrong. Cheers.

JetSetWilly said:Just want to ask, I'm trying to render my cut of Rocky, but everytime I do it, it comes out between 7 - 7.8GB in size. The films are in 2.0 audio (at least I think they are), but it's just too big a file. The original rips themselves are about 1 1/2GB in size each. Idealy, I want to output in MPEG2 or .avi, but each time it's coming out the same size. Any recommendations on settings (I don't really change them as I'm not sure what I'm doing when rendering with Vegas).

Gatos said:Not sure why you'd want to do this, by encoding using VirtualDubMod your causing an unnecessary drop in picture quality.
JetSetWilly said:I use this because by using PGCDemux, I'm left with an audio file and an audio file. I tried just bunging them into Vegas just they are, but Vegas doesn't like them at all.
geminigod said:Not a good sign when you don't know how many channels there are in your audio. If your edit is almost done and you think it looks and sounds good, then just roll with it I guess, but I strongly advise to research a better workflow for future edits.
I'm haven't looked very carefully to see exactly what this Boon's guide says, but keep in mind that it was written back in 2009 and may be a bit outdated. Is this what you have been following for your workflow?
