Web video for beginners

project properties

(Toronto, Canada)

Still moving at a snail's pace. Got a new computer with Intel Core Duo. (PREVIOUSLY had a single Pentium 1.86 GHz - no WONDER the playback was jumpy!)

So now using Sony Vegas Movie Studio 9 Platinum. And have the raw clips in the "project media" window ready to edit. I'm clueless as to how to set the project properties (ie click on project, click on "properties...", select the video tab. Which template from the 17 choices???

Other settings on that video tab: If I want my videos to be about the same size as the ones on YouTube, which width and height?? Also the default field order is "lower field first" but shouldn't it be "none" since it's not for television?? And what about "deinterlace method"?

I'm so frustrated I don't even care what those things MEAN anymore. Just need to know which options to select.

Thanks for being there for us!

Hi Susan,

I'll let you into a little secret....I don't know what half the things do on Sony Movie Studio either, but you don't need to ;-)

Just stick with the defaults when starting, and refer to the excellent Help section when you're stuck. Also check out the Sony Movie Studio video tutorials we have on this site to get you started.

If you want to upload a video to YouTube from Sony Movie Studio, simply click on the 'Make Movie' button at the top > Upload to Web > YouTube > Fill in the details for your video and hit the 'Upload' button. All the best settings are automatically done for you.

320 X 240 is the most common size for online video.
