EX1 with Vegas 8b

Has anybody tried importing HQ 1920 x 1080 25P progressive into Vegas 8B?

The properties list show HQ 1920 x 1080 24P
and HQ 1920 x 1080 50i

but not 25P

The "properties list" is just the basic set of ready templates that Vegas comes with. Open the closest one (1920x1080/50i in this case), and customize it by changing field order in the video section from "upper first" to "none"; type in you new template name (like 1920x1080/25p) and save it, using the diskette icon to the right of the name field.

Next time you set up a new project, the saved custom template will be available to you.

Greg, can't you simply change 24p-template property settings from 24 fps to 25 fps?

Alright, Piotr has already answered!

Sure, but this will require more changes in the video section (no. of I-frames, video space etc) as 24p is basically an "NTSC" template!

Piotr, you're absolutely right. The 50i-setting is the closest to modify.

So if i'm shooting in 720/50p,here in pal-land,what template should i use ?
Should it be HDV 720-25p ?
Or should i be modifying a template ?
HD 1080i-50i always seems to look the best when i'm previewing.
Also do these templates make any difference when i'm actually rendering to say mpeg-2 or mp4 or whatever ?
What template should i use if i've got 1080 and 720,some interlaced and some progressive,all on the same timeline ?

Vegas is known for being extremely tolerant with respect to your project properties; what really matters is your output settings. So yes, you can mix all sort of stuff in the same project/timeline; the only caveat being the previewing will not always be accurate. But once you decide on your final format and render out accordingly, everything will be OK.
