Hi, I have a problem.
I have a 1000Kbps mpeg-1 (constant bit rate) stream which looks great @ 352x240 onto which I need to put a watermark / url on the video. The issue is, how can I do this without losing any quality on the video?
I use sony vegas 6.0 - I’ve tried using a generated text media in vegas and reencoding it at 1000K constant BR. Definite loss in quality. I dont HAVE to use vegas but this is what I purchased years ago.
I’ve tried decompressing the file first using the MS uncompressed codec which turns a 23min video into 14GB. From there I’ve tried to re-encode with vegas logo at 1000K mpeg again with loss.
It seems like re-encoding at 1000K is the problem. Is there a way to put the url in the video somehow without reencoding it or in a lossless way?
EDIT: BTW, the output file will be mpeg-1 @ 352x240 - 1000K is fine - whatever it takes to not have loss in the quality of the video
