Mercalli question

I downloaded the Mercalli demo, and tried it out with a short clip in Vegas. This is a clip I shot with a Canon XH-A1. When I render using Mercalli, (a) I get an occasional blurry affect on each side, and (b) the rendered video image does not look as sharp as the same clip rendered without Mercalli.

I'm rendering in 32 bit floating point, 2.222 video, best quality. I'm using an HDV 1080i template. In Mercalli, I'm using the Versatile reliable image stabilization profile. I'm also using Vegas Pro 8.

Is this a function of the demo version? Something I'm doing incorrectly with other settings in Vegas and/or Mercalli?

Well you know what they say about RTFM... read the manual.... :-)

The fuzziness is the default setting... change the setting and it will go away.

Change Borders to "without Borders" on the mercalli option

After you get used to it, the program works very well.........
