Rendering Back To Native Format In HV10

Hello, I am getting close to making the jump into the HD world. (My treasured Canon Optura Xi just developed a bad fault). :(

Here's my question: I've downloaded some raw footage from the HV10. I know that its native format is .m2t, (although I'm not exactly sure what that is, and how it relates to the other consumer HDV formats that are showing up). I'd like to render color corrected/edited footage so that I can play back in it's native resolution, from whatever I can squeeze at a time (maybe 20 minutes) as raw data files on a DVD. I'll play the disks from the new editing computer I built that is attached to my HDTV via component out.

So, I'm using Vegas 7, and I tried rendering to the WMV HD template. It's taking forever! Would it be faster to just render back to the same .m2t format that the camera writes? What is that format exactly, and does Vegas have a setting for it? What if I wanted to render and write directly back to the camera via firewire? Is that possible? Thanks in advance for all the great advice you guys offer here.

Kevin

Yes, you can render back to your camcorder via firewire. Click the "tools" pulldown menu, click "print video to HDV tape".

You can then recapture. The raw m2t file although large will look better than a compressed wmv file.

Thanks Ron. If I wanted to save those files to disk, what preset would I use in Vegas? There's so many of them. Sorry for being redundant.

If you have the disk space, save the raw m2t files.

Thanks again, but I still don't have my question answered; after I edit the files in Vegas 7, what preset, or format do I use to render them back to their exact original format? Should I be asking this in the Vegas forum?

I don't mean to sound stupid here, but is there a preset for .m2t?

when you capture the video from the camcorder it is already in m2t format.
