rather than do it in realtime zooming, can't you do this with a few keyframes and a composited frame?

So are you getting no surround or swapped rear & front? I've
heard of this (unrelated to vegas) once before. I forgot how
and why though. Are you going out through SPDIF when in Vegas
as well?

Donie, I'm still not sure I'm picturing the effect you're looking for. Have you looked through the standard transitions too? There's several that do zooming.

Hi Edward

At the start of the shot (POINT A) the camera is zoomed away in the distance at some object.

Pull the camera back slowly (will be sped up in edit) and move to foreground subject (POINT B). By doing it slowly I'm guaranteed that I'll be in focus and have framed the person in the foreground correctly.

Now during edit I do speed up between point A and point B. At the end of point B the camera is in focus and framed correctly. If there was any focus loss just before point B the sped up footage will make it irrelevant.

The finished shot will look like a super high speed zoom from a far object to a near one in perfect sysn with no apparent loss of focus or framing.

Just a split second shot but can be quite impressive.

No, I don't know how to do that? (SPDIF out in vegas)

It could be me needing a AC3 decoder in vegas because when I render to AC3 files, load them into my dvd software player It works well, I just don't want to have to render out to AC3 and listen and change and render when I mix.

What If I Do *This* While Rendering

Must I leave the computer alone while rendering in order to avoid glitches? Or can I web surf? Play Winamp? Render another project by opening another instance of Vegas?

<There is a theme editor program available by Brian Barnes that will let you create your own themes.>

Edward, do you happen to know the link for this? When I did a search I got a whole lot of stuff on an athlete named Brian Barnes. Don't think it's the same, but ya never know.

p.s. Your latest newsletter is great as usual.

While rendering, you can basically do anything you want. Browse the web, edit another project in another instance of Vegas, Render multiple projects in multiple instances of Vegas, Play a game.

I took me a minute to search for it. However, you can download it from: http://www.briancbarnes.homestead.com

I would imagine rendering two projects would cut the
rendering time in half, right? I notice my CPU
usage during rendering is 96% to 99%. Suppose this
is normal?
The reason I asked this is because I notice Vegas
drops frames while capturing when another program
starts up. But how about with printing-to-tape.
Should printing-to-tape be run by itself?

Capture and PTT should be done with no other programs or activities running. Rendering is a totally different animal. Feel free to do other things while rendering. Don't do anything else while capturing or printing.

As for rendering multiple projects at once, yes they will both take longer. However, it WILL allow you to set up multiple projects rendering, go to bed, and, hopefully, they would be all be done the next morning.

The one thing I try to do when rendering multiple projects is have different target drives for each. Otherwise, you are rendering slices of each project onto the same drive. This results if highly fragmented files.

If you have a Hyperthreading PC you will notice that you'll get better performance doing dual renders than if you had a non HT CPU and tried to do two.
