Well as an update, 30i to 60p and back to 30i for output looks the best so far. Don't know why it looks better than 30i by itself yet...

Still Images in Vegas??

Vegas 5.0

Still images look horrible when burned to DVD! Any suggestions on gettting rid of the (terminology) shaky, pixelated look?

Thanks, newbie here.

After you freeze the frame as a PNG in Vegas (remember to change the preview screen to BEST FULL) then RIGHHT CLICK the still and in the PROPERTIES use SMART DEINTERLACING OR bring it into Photoshop and deinterlace it then bring it back to VEgas. Either should work fine and the jaggies should go away not to bother you anymore.

The main reason to use uncompressed usually involves exchanging the footage
between multiple programs (for sending it from an NLE to a MPEG-2 encoder
it is usually wiser to simply use frame serving) to add effects or color correction etc.

Undoing a Split

I am relatively new to Vegas so forgive me if the answer to my question is found in the manual. I looked through it and couldn't find it so here we go.

I am editing a piece that has a video track and two audio tracks. One of the audio tracks is the audio from the camera, the other is from a soundboard. I want to substitue a portion of the soundboard audio for the camera audio. The portion I want to substitue needs to be 'normalized'. The problem is that there are several sound peaks within the clip that prevent the whole piece from being normalized all at once.

So, I selected a time range over the portions with the loud sounds and then split at those points. I then 'normalized' the other portions. This seemed to work find. I then created a new group of all these clips so I could move them all at the same time. However, I really wanted to undo the splits so I would have a single clip which would be easier to work with but I can't figure out how. Is that possible? When I undid the split from the pull down menu of previous "undo's" I lost my normalization.

Ultimately, I want to subsitute that clip for the audio from the camera without losing my sync. If I simply drag it over top of that clip is there any problem? In the back of my mind I think I should be deleting the old underlying clip that I don't want but perhaps I am being to fussy.

I know there are lots of ways to accomplish the same thing in Vegas but I am interested in learning to do it the right way, if there is such a thing.

Any comments would be appreciated.

thanks

Curt

If you want some of the pieces normalized and others not normalized, you can't go back to a single piece. However, If you really DO want a single piece, just delete all of the pieces except for the first one and then resize the first one back to the original length. (or use the "Unsplit Media" tool in Excalibur).

To counteract the normalization problem, try using a volume envelope to adjust the volumes.

Or you could select all the "split clips" and render them out as a new wave file
which would retain the individual normalization settings of the clips.

Hope this helps.

Rob, would there be any quality loss using the frameserver?

Vegas 6 Does Not Work w/ Windows 64 bit O/S

I found out the hard way. I'm kinda bummed because I've used Vegas since version 3 and know the interface and am comfortable with it. Vegas software tech support also confirmed that Vegas is not engineered to work with the 64 bit O/S. I hope they offer a patch so I can go back to using it again.
