Sorry Edward, I was making the suggestion rather than asking how - I didn't want you to think I was being curt!

But while on the subject of ways to make the binoculars mask look more realistic, I think that keyframing varying degrees of blur on the lower track (ie what is being seen through the binoculars) would nicely simulate the viewer focusing on the target.

Sorry Ian. I mistook it as more of a question instead of a statement.

Converting 30fps to 24fps?

I posted in the filmlook forum about software that would convert 30fps to 24fps (XL-1s footage shot on framemode) and someone said Vegas would do it. How in vegas would I go about doing this? Would it just slow down the footage or actually convert it to 24?

No worries! My grammar I suspect, rather than your interpretation.

By the way, I wanted to say how much I enjoyed looking at your most recent newsletter. When I get home I'll be sure to subscribe and to trawl through the archives.

Assuming you don't plan on slowing the footage down or haphazardly excising frames, this is going to require some temporal interpolation, of which there are different varieties, none of which isn't going to cause distracting artifacting in the scenario you describe. How important is it to convert to this particular frame rate?

It's preferable to shoot in 60i when you intend to convert to 24 fps.

You can also whap the camera on the side during taping or playback.

In Vegas, simply choose File - Render As and pick one of the 24p templates.

Thanks for your replys guys. Stretching the audio doesnt seem like the effect im going for. I'm going for the "deep and slow" voice effect or the opposite, which is the "chipmunk" voice effect

er . . Guys . .did I read somewhere that one can set the "pitch" to go or not go with a VeloEnv? Or am I again having a "young" senior moment?!?!

Grazie

Well, the velocity envelope does not come into play because it does not affect audio. But, yes, you CAN adjust the pitch of clips whether or not you stretch or shrink them via a CTRL-Drag.

It worked with the demo so I ordered a copy today. Stand by for a rash of newbie questions.
