Also if you are using a PC with Sony Vegas as an editor, you can buy VASST GearShift which will allow you to work with DV Widescreen proxies for editing and then swap in the original M2T files for rendering back to tape or DVD. The best of both worlds.

If you use for compression only DivX as install DivX codec only - for import XviD you do not need him
If for compression you use XviD install only XviD

I though divx didn't work in Vegas at all? That's what I had always been told. I have the divx codec installed on my machine and it doesn't work.

Dont install 2 codecs - DivX open Xvid files, and XviD open DivX files
You needs instal only ONE of this codecs - codec on you use for COMPRESSON/
Wont experriment? - Problems in DivX files? change 4CC from DivX to XviD and Enjoy :-)

Video FX w/ Vegas 5

I can't get the Video FX of Vegas 5 to work.
The opacity, pan crop, track motion etc, works, but I can't get any of the fx to work.
I believe that my setting are OK, but something is obviously not.
Ive tried to do the FX on diferent project and on different tracks but it won't work.
I've also restarted my PC and still no luck.
Please help.
Thanks in advance,
Bernard

Why not. Sometimes you may want to encode to Divx and somtimes to xVid. I've never had a problem having both installed at the same time.

Well, a dedicated forum it is... for now at least! Although the day may come where we roll SD and HD into one, we'll keep them separated to begin with. Welcome aboard,

Which Video FX are not working?

I'll ask the obvious -- are you sure you don't have the "split screen view" button toggled on the video preview window? One of the settings is "bypass FX" and it could be easy to miss. Also, make sure you don't have "bypass all" selected on your track or event FX, although that one is a lot harder to miss (a red slash through the FX icon if you've bypassed them).

Agreed - bet it's the "Split Screen" button just above the preview screen.

Depending...

O.K. I don't recommend this. Just so you know. But if the background isn't uniform and sufficiently different from the forground to do some kind of sloppy colour key, then there is a REMOTE and painstaking possibility that you could use Bezier Masking to cut out your subject.

Just my two cents, and again, I would weigh the benefit against the amound of work and how it might end up looking worse anyway.

You might be able to pull a difference key, but it may not work.

I don't know how to do it in Vegas, sorry.

Jason,

May I ask WHY you want to get rid of the background?

Thanks, Steph
