You can always try downloading the latest Windows Media
Player from Microsoft and (re)install that.

I dunno I usually agree with Edward but might have to disagree on this one. Especially after seeing visual abnormalities in some mpgs output in "Good".
The thread is here (along with an example mpg):

*no photo pan/crops, etc...in the mpg I posted...just camera movement (renderd using the MPG VCD template, set at "good"*

You're not disagreeing with me, I'm just stating the standard answer. However, I've seen it to also be true when going from DV-AVI to DV-AVI. When going to other formats, it may very well help to change to Best.

Edward, do you have any idea why I was getting this problem- and how changing it to High or Draft fixed it?! I'm boggled.

Hard to say. I always leave mine on Best unless I'm under such a time restraint that I cannot do so. It's just easier that way. I do a weekly edit on another machine that is always left on good. Just a few titles are added and rendered to DV-AVI.

Credit Roll / Scrolling Right w/o Pause?

Is there any way that I can adjust or remove the pause in the "Timed, Scroll Right, on Frosty White" Media Generator?

Or... if somebody can please suggest an alternative method to have scrolling text from left to right, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

Ill take a stab on this one.

There's two ways I can think of:

1. 'S' (Split) the exact frame before titles pause AND 'S' (Split) the exact frame after titles move again. Delete selection in-between Splits and join.

This worked for me perfectly.

2. The other way is most likely the more traditional method and that would be an Event Pan and Crop method.

Good ideas. You can also use track motion to move your titles and graphics.
Love Vegas, lots of ways to do things.

Personally, I wouldn't use that preset. Try this:

Use the standard text generated media. Get on the keyframe at the beginning of the gen media timeline and move the text off the left hand side of the screen. Then move to the end of the gen media timeline and move the text off the right hand side of the screen. This will scroll from left to right without pausing in the middle.

Take a look at the last issue of my newsletter where I talk more about moving text.

<<<-- Originally posted by John Hudson : Track Motion! Yes! Thanks Don! -->>>

Track Motion won't work if the text you want to scroll happens to be longer than the width of the screen. The positioning tab on the text Generated Media works great for this purpose without needing Track Motion OR Pan/Crop.

Ah, Edward, "When going to other formats, it may very well help to change to Best." . . . would you recommend going BEST if my final, final render is say WMV or mpeg for DVD?

Grazie

I think it's just something you'll need to test for any given circumstance. I don't think you could give an answer that would be 100% correct in all circumstances. You'll need to try different variations on your own.
