Scratch it

Thank you Edward. I used a PNG (instead of TIFF or JPEG) and it did exactly what I was trying to do; a simple matte

Thank you Vegas masta!

Hi John,

Edward's suggestion would work fine.
Also, you can do this entirely in Vegas by using one image on a track above the other and applying a Bezier Mask to the top one.

Tiff and Jpeg don't maintain the transparency. Png and Psd do. Glad to hear it all worked out for you.

Hi Gary

I'm still in V4 ( :/ :P )

Edward

Works like a charm. Now lets see if I can be creative with simply Vegas and PS. I'm going to reference the old school ILM stuff

worked

Thank you Edward..
just a conclusion post for anyone reading this with a similar problem.. yes, rendering the project to DV (PCM) and then feeding it to DVDA for re-rendering to PAL format fixed the problem. The video and audio are now in sync!
Kind Regards,
matt lewis

Edward is correct, European PAL DVD players usually also play NTSC DVDs without problem.

Certainly. And there's several ways to accomplish it. Rather than try to give a full explanation here, take a look at Vol 3 #1 of my newsletters for the Beginner's Corner - Ways to Split Screen article.

Jim,
There are several ways of having a split screen effect. Using track motion, using Pan/crop, or using masks...it's very easy to do.
http://www.vasst.com/search.aspx?text=split%20screen will show you about 5 different methods of accomplishing this.

Interactive CD Authoring Software

Greeting,

I am looking at a couple of projects where a commercial client requires some interactive CD's to be generated that incorporate video, links to web url's, and multi-page menus.

What software have any of you successfully used in generating this type of disc?

As usual you feedback is greatly appreciated!



Lance

Hi

Thanks for the links guys


Yes i am so happy i done it i have wanted to do this effect for so long, just one problem tho i put the camera on the tripod kept it in the same place through out the filming and used the pan tool in vegas and done 50% on each clip. The problem i got is now i have joined both clips together i can see a very fin line in the middle where they have been joined together is there any way to get rid of this?

Thanks a lot

NTSC will work in PAL land

Being one who stays in PAL land, I can confirm that all the NTSC dvd's that I receive all play on PAL players - from movies to homegrown NTSC dvd's.

Cheers

Setting targa frame size for 1440 x 1080 anamorphic?

Still a tad confused by a reply from Douglas Spotted Eagle on my posting for importing targa sequences into Vegas... specifically dealing with the anamorphic size of 1440 x 1080.

If I need to maintain the aspect ratio of a still image sequence that is now at native DV resolution (720 x 480) what is the enlarged frame size I need to
create to keep the aspect ratio intact when importing into 1440 x 1080 anamorphic?

Example: to import into 1280 x 720 I create a new frame size of 1080 x 720... ti import into 1920 x 1080 I create a new frame size of 1620 x 1080.

According to my figures, then, I would need to create a new frame size of 1218 x 1080 allowing for the 1.33/1 anamorphic ratio of the horizontal dimension.

Does this make sense (Douglas, if you're there) to anyone?

You need to feather the edge so that it's not a distinct joint.

Pixel aspect ratio question.

I know that the CCD blocks in the XL2 are uniquely built to support native 16:9 capture on a regular, non 16:9 1/3” chip. As such, when editing with 16:9 footage in any NLE, what would the correct pixel aspect ratio setting be? Do you keep it square, widescreen, or what?
What shape are they on the chip itself?
