Ok I have the project approved, How do I get my sequence from my Avid to the Client's edit system Vegas 8.0.
I can export it as Windows Image NTSC to my external drive, which has all the original material, but Vegas won't open it. do I send it to a DVD and if so what setting in export should I select.
I am learning alot as I go here!
The quality of the output depends very little on the wrapper of the file, but does rely on the codec chosen. If you choose a "lossy" codec and a smaller than DV frame size then the file would look bad.
But, truthfully whenever I have to deliver a file to a client I always ask them what kind of file they would like and I do my best to deliver that.
I have one client that is fine with me creating the DVD compliant MPEG-2 file and just delivering that. I have another that like for me to build the DVD's VideoTS folder and then he burns it. So, I'd ask the person you're delivering to what they would require before playing the codec/wrapper guessing game.
