In vidcap, uncheck preview audio under options. As a warning, it may not be advisable to do both at the same time. Not all machines are up to that task so definitely test before doing so.

Are you seeing ANY effects at all in the preview screen? If not, you possibly clicked on the "Split Screen" button (above the preview screen - it's a circle that's half dark and half light).

Thanks for the help

Thanks Ed,

I'm running a P4 3.2 HT with 1 Gb Ram. I did drop a few frames (about 100) but nothing I can't edit around. The first capture totally screwed up. I had to recapture. It seems to be OK now.

I may just wait until I'm done this show and THEN capture.

Thanks again.

sincerely,


ian

That's the problem (and about 100 frames too many dropped).

cleanup stray pixels in a frame

greetings all:

Every once in awhile my camera will record a frame or two of stray pixels of a different color than what's behind them and dispersed randomly throughout the frame. Looks really bad. I guess this is b/c of dirty tape heads or something like that. I'll work on fixing it on the front end.

But, in the meantime I've got to use some footage like this for a wedding video, so my question is this: in Vegas 5, how do I minimize the appearance of these guys while keeping the rest of the frame intact? Is it possible? I know I won't be able to get rid of them entirely, but I'd like to make it less noticeable when the frame goes suddenly blotchy.

Thanks and write back if you need more info on the problem. I'm guessing you guys have seen this before, though.

Excalibur has a "Fix Bad Frame" tool which works by simply duplicating the good frame just before the bad frame and replacing the bad frame with that good frame. You might try doing something of that nature (depending on how many frames in a row are bad).

I've had issues even trying this one out. I just wanted to see if I could do it, and I had many a drop frame! If you don't have the time to do it right, when will you find the time to re-do it? As an istructor once told me!

I wonder if the title for my thread has turned people off to answering it. It seems as if it was a good question. Anybody?

I would pretty much go in the order you listed but render to 24p AFTER appling the effects. Work it like any other Vegas project, pick the clips, apply effects make sure its all as you want it THEN render.


I rarely do any 24p conversion so I can't help you on that.

"Maybe a Magic Bullet film look here and there."

Only if you want to increase your render time at least 10 fold :-(
Every post I've ever read about it says it's a real render hog.
Celluloid ($25 from the VASST site) is supposed to be far superior - and much quicker as well.

If you have 1BB2 (where B are the two bad frames), you could try changing that to 1122 and see how it looks.

Adding Transitions To The Entire Video

Hey Guys and Gals,

I am just curious as to how you would go about adding one transition to the entire video. My video is only on one track if that helps. Cheers
