tried to shrink 1 HR of video down to show the highlights of the trip. used sony vegas demo to edit. took 2 hrs to edit, and then took the PC 2.5 hrs to render/compile. HDV editing will bring any computer to its knees. ha. i went from 720p .MOV quicktime format to .WMA format. i assume keeping it in .MOV format would be best, but VEGAS wouldn't allow me to do a 720p video at a high bitrate.
this is my first attempt at a compiled video so its a bit rough.
