Thread: WoW MOVIE

  1. #1


    I just recorded WoW footage and I wanted to render it via Sony Vegas everytime I render it the quality is terrible compared to the original version on fraps.

    When i stopped frapsing i opened fraps folder and played my movie (uncompressed file) and it was perfect quality.

    then i rendered it and it went to shit.

    Resolution: 1280x1024

    Anyone know Sony Vegas 9.0 settings to get this into good quality.

    Dunno what you're doing wrong, but to do it right you need the following settings:

    - Project resolution same as the fraps capture, ie. 1280x1024
    - Project render quality best
    - Framerate same as fraps framerate (lock fraps framerate to 20/25/30, do not use "no sync")
    - Progressive frames with 1:1 ratio, not upper/lower field first

    And most importantly use high quality video compression. In "save as type" use one of these:
    Mainconcept AVC (mp4)
    Sony AVC (mp4)
    Microsoft Media Video v11 (wmv)

    In single pass mode set bitrate to 4 000 000 for AVC or leave default 5M for wmv. In 2-pass mode 4M-10M is good range. The files will be about 30-40 megs/minute compressed. Also force the same framerate and resolution in codec settings you used for project settings, just in case.

    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.
