Best small audio format to archive Vegas projects?
on Feb 29, 2016 at 8:44:29 am

Hi!

I'm just cleaning up my projects from temporary files and want to keep the projects small. I don't need really high quality audio so wav or flac is not required. I already tried mp3 but when loeading it back on the timeline, it doesn't match up with the original, some small timeshift is there. Actually I already figured out the format which will be small and in sync - that is ogg and 128kb is good enough for me. But I'm just curious what are the common practices and also I wanted to ask why mp3 and some other formats doesn't have the same length or do have but not matching up as the original audio (in my case usually wav)?

I guess that's because Sony MP3 encoder inserts a ~0.25 sec blank(depends on the audio frame size) in both intro and outro of MP3 streams just like LAME Encoder does.
Why?
You can read the explanation about the LAME encoder here; http://lame.sourceforge.net/tech-FAQ.txt

In that case, stick with .ogg @ 128kb....
