You also need to look also at the speed in which the data is actually transferred to the computer. For example, compare the speed of data access when in PIO mode compared to DMA mode. PIO is MUCH slower - when using the SAME drive.

Something was just messed up. That can happen. It might even
be some installation that did it, or who knows. Most important
thing is that it works again now. Glad to hear this fixed it, and
much appreciated that you did a follow up. Thanks.

Peter,

You might want to contact David Hague and Peter Wright. Peter, is a member of the SoCal Vegas Users Group and David Hague can be found on DMN Vegas. They both live in Austrailia and are active Vegas Users.

If you'll put another shrimp on the Bar B' - I'd be glad to come down.

Regards,

Jay Mitchell

im getting strange results...

i finished a clip which runs for 4 mins and due to not wanting to recompress again, i did a render (to go into steadyhand) using uncompressed format.

when i put this file in vegas, it plays fine..

when i put the same file in steadyhand it only gives me 26 seconds.

THEN when i attempt to play the fle using media player, again, 26 seconds...

now all my drives are NTFS, so i dont know what the issue is.. my captures direct from tape play fine as AVI at their true duration (these are raws from tape) but i cant play back a vegas clip...

i dont knwo if its the codec, but i doubt it.. i have no idea and its really frustrating...

Peter - you are probably thousands of miles away, but keep the OzVegas flag flying wherever you are.

We have a small monthly group here in Perth - about 20 each meeting, but numbers have nothing to do with how enjoyable it is to edit with Vegas.

Free DVD that I made with Vegas

Hey everyone,

A while back I made a football DVD with Vegas 4.0 and I was wondering if anyone wanted to review my footage and give me some feedback. There are so legality issues with the video that I am aware (music and logos) of and I'm trying to fix them in the future. I have about 5 extra DVD's if anyone is interested.

Send me a PM if you would like to review it. Thanks!
EDIT: I just realized this board does not have a PM feature... drop me an email at curt@<fighthespam>curtkay.com

(any comment is worth hearing in my opinion, only was I'll get better at this)

-Kay

For those following this thread:

Nope, starting Vegas with Control depressed DOESN"T reset the presets.

I also uninstalled and re-intalled, but that didn't do it either.

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Andy

About the only other thing I could suggest is:

Uninstall again, delete any Vegas folders that might remain, delete any Vegas registry entries that might remain, and then reinstall. Otherwise, I suggest contacting Tech Support.

Any chance your not rendering to a type 2 (OpenDML) AVI file?
(you changed the settings). Look into the settings when saving
the uncompressed AVI as well. Does it also have sound? What
is the exact filesize of the rendered file?

Sounds like a good idea!

Is there any way I can use my LCD FPD as a second monitor to increase Vegas workspace? I have a ATI Radeon 9700 graphics card with dual monitor support and was wondering if this is adequate or would I need to change something.

Would I need to change settings in Vegas or in Windows XP (or both)?

Thanks

Did you download Hydravision from the ATI website? It enables the extended desktop mode and other modes for ATI cards.

2- Click on the little TV icon in video preview to get Vegas to send the previews to the DV device hooked up to your computer.

exact, came to 13 gb for a 5 minute uncompressed clip.. then on playback (mediaplayer) it would only play up to 26seconds..

i ran the same clip in "steady hand" to stabilise it, and it too only recognised 26 seconds of it.... and would only render 26secs of it

it is set to AVI2 and audio is included

funny thing is, from raw footage captured there is no limit as to how long the clip plays for.. but once its rendered with vegas
BRRRRRRRRRRRR i get a kick right up the backside....

I want to make the CN Tower move!

I have a video of the Toronto skyline with the CN Tower and a few buildings in the foreground.

Now the scene lasts for about 5-6 seconds as the camera passes the buildings. During this time I would like to "animate" the buildings so it appears as though they are moving to the soundtrack.

What would be the easiest way to go about animating these frames? I would put up a pic, but I am at work unfortunately.
