Nice job James! Love the last dolly shot. Also reminds me of JAWS, when the sheriff sees the shark on the beach for the first time.

My encode looks pretty bad compared to this. I'm going to try and re-submit at 1280x720. Any secrets to getting things to look good on Vimeo? Do they do another compression pass like youtube?

Paul,

Don't think I have many tricks when it comes to encoding video for Vimeo. My usual workflow is to render out the video first to a cineform avi (1280X720) and then render out this cineform intermediate file to a Mainconcept AVC file with the .h264 preset in Vegas. I up the bitrates from their default settings to something like 10 000 000 max, 5 000 000 average.

I know that Vimeo does make a flash recompression for the low res version of any clips but I don't know about the high def if it is compressed again. I suspect it is not but I couldn't say for sure.

All the best,
James

Thanks James, I just did a re-encode and it looks much better now! It's great that they let you swap out the video without losing all the comments etc.

i edited hdv footage then i exported quicktime 720p, h.264, 5000 kbits/sec and i don´t deinterlace it because i already use timewarp fx, in avid, to make it progressive

cheers
