i've found the sony preset mp4 (internet/720p) to be very good....

Even if i've shot in 1920x 1080?
Thank you for helping me out

no matter what it was shot in - even with fast broadband hd puts a heavy toll on bandwidth, (with very, very little gain).

It doesn't matter what it was shot at. HD on Vimeo is 1280x720. There's little sense in uploading it 1920x1080. Resolution alone is not the key. Bitrate is key. A video at 1920x1080 at the same bitrate as one at 1280x720 will look worse. Use the settings I gave you... 3000 bits/s for the best quality.

Gracia Les - Leslie very appreciated! Are you dslr user too? Canons???

no. i played around with can / nik, but found them both to be awkward to use and though the pic quality is exceptionally good, totally impractical for professional (video) work.

Marcus, the settings recommended by Vimeo are listed in detail at Vimeo. For HD 5000 KBPS is recommended. If you shot in progressive, then you don't need to deinterlace.
