DIVX CODEC HELP

Postby Psyche Shredder » Sun Dec 03, 2006 1:03 am

I don't want my videos in divx codec because it screws the quality. I tried converting them to .avi and Vegas won't upload them. Help?

I know this! I'm trying to fix it!

I don't know how to make in un-divx through Virtualdub! I thought I heard somewhere that Vegas will take AVI codec but it's not working!

avi is not a codec, it's a container
to make your footage work, get a lossless codec such as Lagarith
open your footage with virtualdub(/mod)
go to file-save as
name your file, for compressor, hit change, then look for lagarith lossless codec in the list.
highlight it and hit ok
then save away.

(lossless means big(ger) files...so it's not reccomended that you save entire episodes like this. instead, you should take small clips. That process can be found by reading this, and this)

How much do you want to bet he's making uncompressed clips?

If you're suggesting he encode the clips with DivX to edit with, that's bad advice :/

ummm....... :roll: though I use different of mine Blaze Media Pro so I never use 2 or 3 video program now to make AMV like Lagarith, Huffy or even DivX Pro to make .avi. Mine is a audio and video editing converter. :D :lol: :D
