Newbie help..
I am using Vegas to edit some stuff as the Edit in the toaster won't see vob files.....without converting them... but I will leave that for now...

Is there a codec in Vegas (not the city... ;-) ) that will give me the file size that the WMV codec but be VT 4.6 compatible?

I use a program from Xilisoft called DVD RIPPER and I rip to UC .AVI's for use in VT or SpeedEDIT. It's less than $30 bucks.

Hi, TWalker --
Your expressed concerns seem a bit unclear to me. I get the fact that you'd like to be able to manage VOB files within VT[4]. But I'm unclear about just what you want VT-EDIT to do with said VOB (Video Object) files.

Also, what are you looking for Vegas Pro to be able to provide you, relative to the Windows Media Video CODEC?

Would you (or someone else) provide a bit more clarity on what you're attempting to accomplish, and just how you could wish it could be done in VT-EDIT? Thanks in advance.

for some reason the vt-edit simply would crash if I loaded the vob files into a project. tech support told me to rename them to avi files...
I had to reboot my machine several times during this as it got hung up.
at some point the renamed vob files worked for a bit.

i gave up on the vt edit and used vegas.
then saved them as windows video files. of course they aren't recognized by vt edit or the ddr's.

so I guess what I was getting at is, I want to take the vob files and edit them , then spit them out as an avi ro something that will compress them with to the quality and file size you get with the wmv file encoder.

I generally used the newtek (25) encoder but the file sizes are huge.

I wish there was a compression tutorial that showed one file uncompressed , then teh differences as they are ran through all the other codecs... without me having to do it manually then comparing it.
