Best fps for video of just one image with backing music
on May 4, 2015 at 10:11:16 pm

I'm trying to make a really simple but long video which is just one image with a couple of hours worth of music.

The file size is 26gb when it is rendered!!!

I'm guessing it is so large because it's rendering at 29fps. If it's only a single still image, then I would have thought that I don't need 29fps (that's for motion right?).

Can't I set it to 1 fps or if not, what would be the best setting to use?

Thanks.

What format are you rendering to? How do plan to play it?

It was mp4.
I want to put it on YouTube.

The bit rate affects file size, not fps. For a still picture I'm not sure it makes much difference. But bring the bit rate way down, especially since for a video that's just a still image you won't need it high.

How do I lower the bitrate?

You change that in your render settings. Go down to "Customize Template" when you open it and you can probably lower it significantly. Maybe try 3 or 4 mbps instead of wherever it is now.

There are several different templates for mp4.
If I'm rendering for YouTube, I use the free Video4YouTube extension from the good folks at Vegasaur.

If size is a concern, use the Vegas Pro to HandBrake method as discussed in this thread on the Sony Vegas forum.
One-click frameserving from Vegas to Handbrake
Using this method I was able to get a 2 hr. video file down from 10 GB. to under 5GB. so I know it works great!!
