Although not every slo-mo sequence is the same/looks the same, I have found at times when the softening effect is produced as Edward mentions, I copy the clip to a new track...add the Convolution Kernel (with the sharpen preset) and set the opacity of the track at 30%.

Vegas 4 is faster than 5

when vegas 5 can render as fast as V4, thats when im gonna upgrade...

i started rendering the same project on V5.. tel me 28hrs at 10%

I cancel and throw it back to v4, renders at 17 hours...

on top of that, project loading times are significalty longer (were talkig 14 hours worth of raws being loaded into the Media Pool)

right now, im only using v5 to do stuff i cant do with V4...

anyone else figure this??

Would need more details to determine why 5 might be that much slower. Were you using a Parent/Child relationship at some point in the project? If yes, that's probably the reason why.

Also, remember that the time is an estimate. The actual time may be much less than the estimate at 10% depending on the details of the project.

PhotoStory2 by Microsoft

Has anyone found any software other than MS that does automatic pans and zooms like PhotoStory 2?

Microsoft has a good solution however it only renders to .wmv files. (It really reduces the workload for photo montages
however rendering is very long.)

I have been looking and I haven't found a solution that does the automatic pans and zooms.

Any help would be appreciated.

Mark

I have found adding a sharpen preset with the convolution kernel restores some of the "softening" created by the slo-mo sequence. Dropping the opacity of the track takes some of the bite of the sharpening effect...alll of the settings can/needs to be tweaked for each slo-mo created....

Mark, instead of the filter you use I just apply the sharpness filter to the slow-mo'ed clip at a level of about 400. It saves a step or two. I compared a clip with the sharpness filter and the convolution/opacity process you are using and I can't really distinguish a significant difference so it's worth a try to save yourself a step or two.

thanks rob....as it would probably save on render time as opacity changes seem to ramp up the render time. If I ever get a break in my editing I may test using just the sharpen filter over the convolution kernel....

Rendering an HD 5.1 mpeg file in Vegas

Hi, i'm editing an HD project with footage from the JVC HD10 Camera, I can edit and export just fine but only in stereo.
Is it possible to render an HD mpeg file with 5.1 Surround Sound and then export it back to the camera?
Thanks!
