First I would like to apologize to the WC community, artists, and users for the resource hungry wmv Dreams I have posted.
I have designed a custom MPEG template in Sony Vegas Pro 10 that appears to encode superior output than I imagined possible for a 1920x1080 mpg. File sizes are much larger than my previous wmv's but are in line with other authors Dreams and conserve approximately 30% resources.
I seem to have one final hurdle. My Dreams created from MPEG do not loop smoothly (identicle clip from WMV does). I see a 1-2 second delay when the clip reaches the end. On very short loops this is quite annoying at the least.
This may be due to the software I am encoding with (Sony Vegas Pro 10.0d) or an intricate setting in my custom MPEG template. If you have any recommendations I would be glad to try them. The file quality I have coming out of Vegas is awesome but I may have to step back to square one and attempt using Super or TMPGEnc.
Special thanks to CarGuy1 and Amit for their guidance that got me this far.
