vidding: 4 the love of it

saving in Vegas

Hi - I just made my first video fully on Sony Vegas 6.0 and I'm having trouble saving it. It either saves as something like 500 MB or 1MB.
Does anyone out there have a render setting they recommend using that will help make the file size more reasonable while keeping the quality good?

EDIT: I get the .avi/.wmv distinction - my problem is the template part (see pic below). There are so many options and I have no idea what each one means or which one is best. Any suggestions? I guess if I can't figure it out I can always put one of my 500MB saves into WMM and change the file size that way, but I'd rather preserve quality by doing it straight through Vegas.Collapse )
