In November, Cult filmer/editor Ryan Navazio detailed instructions on how to properly compress standard definition video during exporting for a Vimeo video. "I set up a 1280x720 HD timeline and dropped the original uncompressed SD version into the HD timeline and exported it using the same Vimeo settings I would typically use for any HD video," said Navazio. "It is noticeably sharper, has less artifacts and seems to be more consistent with a DVD version," he added.
