best practice for saving video file

Postby manglwise » Tue Mar 06, 2012 6:39 pm

My video is only for keepsakes of family and friends. I use VS X2 to create short movies. Once I create the movie I want to save it in a file of the highest quality given the camera it came out of. Would I get the best quality file by selecting Share-Create Video File- Same as First Video Clip? Once the movie is saved I wanted to delete the original video clips and the then useless .VSP file used to make the movie.

My thinking is that I do not want to keep all the video clips forever. Many of them are just no good. I use the best of what I shoot and put that into a movie. If I take this approach, will I be able to use movies saved as above to create a new production in the future? For example, create a compilation movie of my son in 2nd grade from the many shorter movies I took throughout the year. Would this compilation movie have the same quality as that created from the original video clips from the camera?

This is just a hobby for me and I don’t want to become buried under a mountain of video files that I will never use and eat up storage space on the PC.

Thanks for any suggestions you can throw my way

Hi Greg
Welcome to the forums
I have moved your post to the video Studio forum

The option to Share Create Video file –Same as First Video should preserve the original quality, however it will create a single file of the project.
As you indicate requiring to “create a new production in the future” you may be best to use the File--Smart Package option

This will copy all files used in the project to a separate folder, this will allow you to delete the originals including the rubbish.
Once you have the Smart Package you will be able to continue editing as the VSP file is also preserved.
You can now decide whether you wish to render to a single file or indeed to burn a DVD.

The size of the Smart Package should be similar to the single rendered file.
Regards Trevor

Thanks Trevor,

I will give that a try. I did read what little there was regarding Smart Package but completely missed its usefulness.
