Pictures into video without blur

I know why this is happening but I wonder if there is a quick fix for this inside vegas or otherwise. I have some screen shots that I am using in a video and the screen shots are taken at 1280X800. The video I am making is SD at 720x480. When I add the screens to the video they are very blurry and not very usable to see small changes in each screen shot. Besides resizing the resolution of the monitor and retaking the screens, or resizing the pics, does vegas have any way to get the pictures looking the best they can?

I think your problem is that not only you are using a much lower resolution where not many details are viewable, but also that you probably using a non-square pixel aspect ratio. So if you are using NTSC's 0.9 aspect ratio, the images will both get resized and then squashed, resulting in the blurriness you mention. Might be a better idea to resize your pictures manually (you can do mass resizing with a free Microsoft tool: http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...ertoySetup.exe ), at the 1.000 aspect ratio resolution. For NTSC 4:3 that would be 654x480.

just to make sure, are you using preview, good, or Best on the preview?
