In this video tutorial I show how to to render 1080p HD Video for upload to YouTube using Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.

Learning how to render 1080p HD video for YouTube can be overwhelming for a new user, because there may be an expectation that you just press a couple of buttons and you're done. Well that is true only AFTER you have created some Project Property templates and some Rendering templates, but before that stage you need to learn a few things which I am about to show you in the video.

Video has become very complex because there are so many different devices you can use to shoot video with a camera and capture video from a gaming consule or computer. There are countless video codecs, frame rates and frame sizes being used to save video to. If you know exactly what your video is being shot in, then you can gaurantee that setting up Vegas to make beautiful video will be a breeze.

If however, you get confused and mis-match templates and settings, then you will end up with some problems that will frustrate you. So watch and listen carefully to my video tutorial and everything will be relatively easy and enjoyable to do.
