HDV .M2T to Cineform .AVI Renders in Vegas

I've discovered that rendering .m2t files to Cineform .avi files in Vegas causes slight noise in the form of thin lines. Anyone else noticed this? I rendered to Film Scan 1. Converting .m2t to .avi using HD Link is perfect though.

Tony,

Very interesting, you have just found another reason to use CineForm over the internal Vegas engine. It seems the MPEG2 decoder with Vegas is introducing those artifacts, and when you render M2T to CineForm within Vegas it is preserve the Vegas bug. When you use HDLink to make you CineForm masters we are using a different MPEG2 decoder, one we have been very happy with for a long time. Vegas has been accelerating their MPEG2 engine to make it faster for editing, it seems they have sacrificed a small amount of quality.
