What if you try this: Place the ENTIRE mpg file on the timeline and render it to DV-AVI. Now cut up the DV-AVI file. Does that work better?

Remember, mpeg is NOT a good editing format.

i use Video Arts in san Francisco ..

note: that Video arts transfer to Beta Sp by you rendering a 10bit BM codec NOT 8bit .. they then transfer to digibeta 1st then dub to Beta SP ..

So to make a correction in my above post .. when you render for beta SP check with your production/post house on if they want 10bit or 8 bit ..AND if 8 bit i believe the real pixels are 640x486 for beta SP not 720x486 .. again check with your place doing the transfer ...

now i do know that video arts keeps the digibeta used to transfer the project to beta SP for awhile ( 6 months that i know of ) at any time you can have other copies made from it ..and they will sell you the digi beta for a excellent price ...

Vegas 5 stutters bbbaadddd...

Hello!

I have used Premiere 6.5 before and never had any problems with the playback...

Now I have switched to Vegas 5.0d. I already found out about the PAL capture problem (Minimum Clip Lenght) and solved it... Now the captured files cannot be watched in any way in the regular Preview window. You can see them wobbling around skipping 3 seconds on 1 second of playback.. I already tried using a different preview mode (default is Preview (Automatic)).

I have heard so many great things about Vegas... right now, it's just a little frustrating :) .

Thank you!

Matthias

Straight DV-AVI with NO effects/changes made to it should play back at full framerate. If it does not do so then something else is going on. For example, is the hard drive in PIO mode instead of DMA? Is something else running in the background eating up CPU time? What are the system specs? Previewing to preview screen or external monitor?

Uninstall Version a to Install Version b

Just downloaded the updated V6b...I already have the "a" version installed. Should I uninstall the existing program or overwrite into the same directory?
Thanks -db

It should automatically find and patch a to b without you doing anything since it is still the same major version(6). I just did this without any issues. No need to deinstall.

Vegas Render Settings?

What seems to be the best settings for rendering in Vegas for the following?

1. Codec - In the video device tab in preferences - what is the best codec to use? Cinepak, NTSC DV, Mainconcept? or would it be better just to save as .AVI and compress in TMPGenc (which is what I've always used before Vegas - and seems to do a wonderful, quick job).

2.In project properties, should I deinterlace my footage with "blend fields", use a deinterlace plugin, or what?

3.And does it make a real difference if the full-resolution rendering quality is set to "best" vs. "good"?

I'm using Vegas 5.0b and rendering out footage shot with my PD170.

thanks!

Are you putting PAL clips into a NTSC timeline by any chance?

If you look at video preview window, it should say something like Project: 720X576X32 25.000i (I think those are the numbers for PAL).

The updates are full installs. If you had NOTHING installed, you could install directly to 6.0b. If you have 6.0a installed, it will be UPDATED to 6.0b. Either way, just install 6.0b.
