vegas's 5.1 is 2D only. can it do 3D like master&command?

if you have master&command you know that sometimes the footsteps sounds like they are coming from above. can that be achieved with vegas5?

No, that is not possible. Your camera does not support 5.1
sound or AC3. But you can definitely export an AC3 audio track
for use in DVD authoring.

What you can do is render an 5.1 AC3 audio track. Convert that with some freeware tool to a Dolby Prologic Surround WAV file (I use Azid for that, which can create a 24 bit WAV file). I import this WAV file in the timeline and mute all the other audiotracks and render the video + audio to an AVI file which can be transfered back to the camcorder tape. It's not 5.1 DD, but it's an alternative you could consider.

File -> Render As -> Save As Type = Dolby Digital-AC3?

Hello Yi,

There isn't an NLE out there right now (that I know of) that can do automatic mixing (like Vegas) for a 10.2 system with height channel, esp. since there are no commercial theaters out there that incorporate a height channel, AFIK.

As far as "Master & Commander", the 'footsteps coming from above' effect may just be your brain tying in visual cues of what's going on onscreen to sfx and foley that is coming from the audio tracks. In a 5.1 system, there is no height channel.

If you use a parametric filter with a deep notch (9dBish) in the high frequency range (7k to 9k) and move it around your brain will perceive some height. You might want to play around with this on some white noise.

This effect works on headphones I believe (and not speakers). The folds in your ear are responsible for this effect- they attenuate those high frequencies due to interference. 7k corresponds to sound on the same level to you, and 9k to sound above you IIRC.

My memory is a bit hazy on this- perhaps the folks in the audio forum will know more.

copying track envelopes. is it possible?

hi.

i edited a wedding ceremony using vegas 4 (still haven't updated). i found it easier to devide my work between two seperate veg files, intending to eventually cut and paste one to the other and make them into one complete project.

i've finished editing and am at that stage where i want to cut and paste. when doing so, i found out that cutting and pasting events from one track to another does not include inserted track envelopes. is there no way to copy envelopes from a track on one veg file to a different track on a different veg file?

24p DVX100 footage in Vegas

Hey!
I've got a DVX100 (not mine), a stack of tapes shot in 24p, and Vegas 4.0 in front of me.

My project will be outputed to NTSC VHS, it will also incorporate 60i footage shot on Canon XL1 cameras.

I'm not really familliar at all with editing in 24p. What do I need to know about caturing it, editing it, and mixing it with 60i on the same timeline?

Thanks!

AC3dll plugin errors since installing DVDA2

okies heres a wierd one.. in the past, i could easily set any level on any track with n problems..
when encoding to ac3 within vegas, i would set up my metadata etc etc all good...

now..
when i import this into DVD2, and i can see the timeline of audio and video, there are onvious white noise glitches.. these in turn crash DVDA2...

for some reason the encoder is shitting itself and recording noise...
then the ac3 plugin tries to open this file, it completely dies..

Now ive never had issues with noise, or level limits, however im now back to using dvda1 and this is my 4th ac3 render which seems to be unaffected.. mind u ive had to drop levels considerably, but since i installed dvda2, thats when the problems started..

On top of that it takes FOREVER to load up a project..

heres hoping for an update..

I find it simpler to just render both sections and start a "final" project using the rendered segments.
