But do not forgot to deactivate the smart resample or whats it called for ALL of your videofiles in vegas. The resampling of vegas is just horrible, I dunno why its activated on default.
The problem with Vegas is that its output file alternatives that can be uploaded to YouTube are all horrible and crappy compared to x264's version of H.264. The only way to preserve quality out of Vegas is to save to a lossless format at the original resolution and then encode again with something that doesn't suck, like Handbrake. Handbrake has far superior downscaling capabilities compared to Vegas as well.
And HELL YES, TURN OFF THAT RESAMPLING IN VEGAS. Great point, and I think its on by default because they expect everyone's video sources to be shot with a camcorder. It god-awful for progressive video shot on a computer. I would upgrade to the latest version of Vegas if they made it possible to default it to off, and for no other feature. Such a pain in the ass, even worse if I forget and see the craptasticness after a long render.
