Does anyone have an idea of the best encoding options for HDV, for showing on Vimeo, using Premiere CS3 Media encoder. There is a tutorial on the Vimeo site, but it shows Quicktime pro on a Mac. What do you chaps use??

this is vegas template i use except for on the video tab change the framrate to 25 pal and for some reason i haven't got 5,000,000 on the biterate tab,so i went with 4,000,000.

Here's my results on vimeo

Hi Paul.
Your email address ( when I click on your name/ send email to pkbristol, the address is incorrect, no 1971) It is correct when you go to your public profile page. Have sent an email to your correct address

Impressed with that encode Paul - even plays with very little buffering on my crappy half meg connection. Is there also a preferred Vegas 8 template for SD? I've always used Windows media encoder before, but would much rather do everything in Vegas if possible.

Arthur, i don't know if the encode is different for SD, probably not.
Also, according to vimeo, there's 2 vegas templates, one from mainconcept and one from sony avc, use the sony avc, it renders much much quicker and gives the same results.
