i like my Vegas config the way it is now, it's rock solid and i have no issues.

I think i'll leave it until i finish these next projects and then decide.

it still works as standalone so thats good enough to learn with for now i guess.

Evidently, when you reformatted, there must have been other programs that you did not reinstall that had these fonts associated with them.

Vegas will use whatever true-type fonts you have on your system. Just locate the fonts you want and install them on your system and Vegas will see them automatically.

Re-Rendering Question?

I have two prevously rendered MPEG2 clips and want to join them in Vegas.
If I put the two clips end to end in the timeline with no transistions and re-render to MPEG2, will I lose quality?

Yes you will. Every frame will be de-compressed and then re-compressed. Either revert back to the original AVI and re-render OR use some other program that can join MPEG files (such as TMPGenc)

Okay

In other words, if I install a word processing program like Microsoft Word, Vegas will borrow the fonts from that program? I understand what you are saying but there have been times that I have installed Vegas on prior times without any other word processing programs and I still had no fonts missing like now. What programs besides word processors does Vegas get it's fonts from?

ANY program that installs fonts. Go to Start - Control Panel and look at the Fonts section. THOSE are the fonts on your system. What installed any particular font? Some program you installed. No way we can know WHICH program.

Vegas will happily use any font on your system - no matter where it came from. So, yes, if you install a word processor and it installs fonts, those fonts will then be available in Vegas.

You can also download true-type fonts from the web and install them. They will also be made available in Vegas.

Any particular font you're missing?

If you google the font names with the words download, font, etc., you will find different download sites for them. Just download the file and then drop the ttf file(s) in your Windows/Fonts folder. I found Batavia in about a 1/2 second with google. Use this search string "download batavia font" and choose a site. Try the same with the stencil font.

Restoring PreSets

Hi Guys!

This maybe just Newbie Ignorance, with a simple fix, but it's frustrating the hell out of me.

I put a border (The Translucent Blue One) on, and must have clicked on something bgy mistake, and now it's solid. How do I restore the preset to it's original parameters?

Cheers,

Andy

Strange thing...

What's peculiar is that stencil and batavia should be in my fonts folder through Windows XP. Why in the world did Vegas not pick it up?

Those are NOT standard Windows fonts. Some program you installed in the past (but didn't install this time) had to have added them.

Do as Todd suggested and just download them from the internet.

Set all the settings the way the were originally and then hit save?

Uninstall/reinstall?

Thanks Edward.

That's my problem, I can't remember the settings! Also, I vaguely remember try to save over a preset and not being allowed to by the program.

Uninstall / Re-install? I was hoping to avoid that.

Maybe I'll save that for when I try the .NET Framework.

btw do you ever sleep? :)

btw part II I've tried a few things with saving stills from Video, following the links I've got from hints in this forum, and I've come to the conclusion that the help I get from the people on this forum is nearly as amazing as the program itself.

A heart felt thanks for saving me time and frustration.

Andy

<btw do you ever sleep? >

Andy, you will find that those of us from the great state of Illinois, home to Abe Lincoln, the Stockyards, Sears Tower, O'Hare airport, the transportation hub of the US, the middle of the country, the home to so many dishonest politicians, where in 1968 the first Mayor Daley decreed 'If you can't join 'em, beat em'.... wait, I forgot what I was going to say. Oh yeah, naw, we never sleep, it too noisy what with all the planes trains automobiles and politicians filling the stratosphere with hot air!
