Upside Down And Backwards!! Help~

Hey All,

Fairly new (as a poster, anyway). Just a rookie question spawned from what is probably a rookie mistake, which in turn is probably spawned from my rookie knowledge.

When I render my project (wheter it's avi, mpeg, etc)...I try to play it and it is PERFECT...except that it's upside down and backwards.

Short of shooting me a mapquest link to one of the many "dyslexic-equipped" movie theaters we have around the country...does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks.

Fred:

You did say what editor you are using, but I'll take a shot in the dark. I am guessing you are using system shared with others, and that one of the others set up script or a preset in the editor to flip the image because it was shot using a 35mm adapter attached to the camera. That would mean their footage has to be flipped.

You are apparently picking up that preset.

Hey Crhis,

Thanks for responding. Actually, I'm using Vegas 6.0. I don't have any adapter attached to the camera, it's just a plain ole HVR A1U shot in native 60i. For some reason, every once in a while it comes out upside down and backwards. I will re-render it and it will be fine the next time. I am clueless.

Fred,
a Vegas forum would seem a better place to get advice, I seriously doubt it's a camera issue. There's one here and several others as well as the official Sony Vegas site.
