Probably not. 64 bit just means bigger numbers. Right now the biggest numbers used in video is 32-bit floating point for rendering. Acquisition is 8bit for DV, and 10bit for uncompressed and 12-bit for some film formats. I might be wrong, but I don't envision video programs use 64-bit numbers for rendering as the extra precision would be totally unnecessary and add to rendering time.

Just a reminder that nothing has yet been announced concerning Vegas 6 or what it may contain.

interval time quirk

Hey all,

This might not be an XL2 issue but a Vegas 5 issue - but I'll work backwards here.

Was messing around with the interval time function then running the tape off into Vegas 5 (build b).

The oddest thing happened in that Vegas completely ignored the section of the tape where I recorded a sequence set at a .5 second capture at 30 second intervals. Vegas grabbed everything else off the tape except this 30 second section. Went back a few times to try and recapture that section but nada. Very odd.

Anyone else come across this?

You may have "Minimum Clip Length" turned on and it is ignoring the .5 second clips because they were "mistakes" (i.e. accidentally starting and quickly stopping the camera - or so it thinks.) Turn off that option and see if it will capture that section.

I also have to check off "Enable DV Scene Detection" when capturing because else it creates one DV file for each intervall recording ...

frank thanks for that tip because if this wasn't just a test, the large bulk of .5 sec files i have sitting in a file would be a bit upsetting....

Putting letterbox to ALL events

Hello,

I had about 50 events in the timeline. After the editing was complete, I made the letterbox for the first event.
But I did not know how to put the letterbox to all events rather than clicking Even Pan/Crop button for each events.


How do you put the letterbox to all events simultaneously?

Apply a Mask on a Video Track above your project. get the file here:

and stretch teh file the length of your video...then render it out.

simple.

Thanks Shannon,

but I like to stick with Event Pan/Mask tool. Trying to find out on how to apply the letterbox on all events simultaneously, and not individually (which takes a long time).
