Sony Vegas Pro 8 60i to 24p When Editing?

I have two Sony V1U cameras. I recently started using a Glidecam and Camera crane with them and immediately noticed that the rolling shutter was causing the dreaded "jelly" effect when taping in the 24p mode I have been using since owning the cameras.

Switching to 60i eliminated this issue but I am wondering if after editing the 60i footage in Vegas 8 Pro if I can then render it as 24 p to gain back the more filmic look? If not is there some other method to do this?

Also when editing 60i what "deinterlace" should I choose on the project tab? Mine has been "none" since I previously was shooting 24p but I am guessing I should be using "blended" now?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Default settings for interlacing are what you should use, except you should render progressive for movies that are being used as a DVDA menu movie to avoid DVDA from re-rendering.

To get a 24p look in post Ultimate S has a 24p conversion tool, but I've never used it. You can also use Cineform for a 24p processing I beleive, but I'm not sure.

Rendering 60i footage in Vegas using a 24p setting will not give you a 24p look, I don't think. I believe your footage needs to be converted to 24p first then edited. I could be wrong.

If your cam shoots 30p you might try that, as I've heard it is a nice compromise between 24p and 60i.

New Blue has some very nice filmic effects that might help you as well, though I only use them on a section of a video at a time, never an entire video, as any one film effect does not look right on all types of footage.
