A valid question, but you are aware that you can use any still or video as the menu background, yes?

NAB Vegas Event Announcement

http://www.vasst.com/NABParty.htm is where you can find information and register for the Vegas Users Group event being held at NAB.

DVInfo.net and HDVInfo.net are sponsors of this event. If you are a registered attendee to the party, you'll get free drinks, food, and a special gift from sponsors. Walk-ins won't get nada.

Geez, I gotta get back round to this forum more often. The HDV and Audio forums keep me away from here too much. Been busy!

Hope to see a bunch of you at the NAB event!

Plus, there are a few extra themes on the Sony site.

Is DebugMode FrameServer slow?

A two-pass VBR encode using Procode 2 of a fifteen minute video took two hours (i.e., ran at 1/4-real time.) Is this normal? I have a 1.9GHz P4. I used 2-3 layers with no filters, and cuts or cross-fades for transitions.

Is there a quality hit in encoding a DV render rather than frameserving?

Out of curiosity, how long did a 2-pass VBR encode straight in Vegas take? And if you look at the two, can you see any difference?

My understanding is that you would take a slight quality hit but, considering the end result is MPEG2, you probably wouldn't be able to see the difference.

Displaying Datacode in Vegas?

Not sure if this can be done in vegas or not, or maybe another app somewhere.

I have a bunch of dv clips that I got handed to me and they are not indentified very well. Is there a way for Vegas to display the date information, so I know when the video was shot? Or is there a way to view the avi file in windows and be able to tell when the video was shot?

Thanks

In the media pool, change it to "detail" mode. One of the columns will include the date/time of the first frame.

It rendered to DV in one hour. A subsequent one-pass render in Procoder took 25 minutes (60%-real time)

In other words, the time lost due to the frameserver is negligible. The quality is the same (it's only DV, after all.) Good to know.
