i like the lower thirds and a specific titling in imovie
I had my suspicions that's why you wanted to do your titling in Imovie. You can do anything in Vegas but it does take a bit more work. The least amount of compression is an uncompressed MOV file but that takes a lot of hard drive space and a very powerful computer. In my opinion your best bet is a very high bitrate mp4 file. Use either the Sony or MainConcept AVC/MVC file types and customize it as needed. Good luck.
Thanks Mike. Do you think that the image quality will hold up? Rendering to high bitrate mp4 in vegas, then transfer to imovie, add my things and render again to mp4 then to youtube? i tried it out and didnt see much difference in quality.
mdoart, if it was acceptable to you, that's all that matters.
