My camera native codec is Photo jpeg. I have been using Sony Vegas Pro 10 to render my video's. I have tried alot of different options (h264,sony avc,mpeg2) to render in and i keep losing video quality. When i upload to youtube the video's just look like garbage.
Here is an orginal straight off the camera to youtube. How can i keep this quality when uploading to youtube?
This is 264(The video dosent look to bad but it's just not quite as sharp)

i'd try the compression forum... i've never used vegas, so i can't tell you if it can do a good job of compressing footage, but there are many compression utilities that can. you want to find one that can do a multi-pass encode, preferably to h.264 in a mp4 wrapper.
if you don't have one, you might try mpeg-streamclip (free). import your footage, then export to mp4, choose multi-pass and b-frames. if youtube has a data rate recommendation, enter that. also set audio to youtube specs. then encode.
one note, mpeg-streamclip does not do a good job of scaling or deinterlacing, so make sure your footage is the correct frame sizefor youtube and deinterlaced before importing.
