You are correct, it seems. I did several tests to see if it was possible to trick 24p or 24p (w/pulldown) via print-to-HDV tape. I tried using it with both a Z1 and the Sony MU10 (?) HDV recorder. I also tried using Cineform's HDLink export and the print-to-HDV function of Vegas. With Cineform, the tape sorta locked up. With Vegas, it would try to rerender the project into 60i; or, if I forced it to use the 24p file (both the full 24p or the 24p with pulldown) by referring it to the saved file, then it too would lock up the tape for a minute.

So I'm basically down to harddrive and/or DVD backups of the 24p m2t. I was just hoping that since the Sony Z1 records in 24f mode, that I could at least export back to tape in that mode. Seems to not work that way.

Thanks everyone.

I tried all the advice in different combinations without any real improvement. The clip switches to upper field when it is reversed. I've tried upper, lower, and progressive.

I am clueless as to why this clip is not flickerlessly reversible, but I have a deadline.

I rendered it without the reverse and the clip is fine.

I saved the clip so when I have more time and I can try to find a way to do it.

If there is anymore advice I'd apprectiate it. I feel pretty lame that I couldn't overcome such a simple problem.

There has to be a solution.

Earlier you said "it only flickers on the monitor." Assuming you are editing this for display on TV, if it only flickers on the monitor (and not on TV), why don't you just proceed?

I don't know if you have access to quicktime pro but this article was very helpful for trailers:

Dear Dean,

The other option moves the clip on the timeline so that the audio is in sync.

The option you used, "Slipping", leaves the clip where it is on the timeline, but then moves the content within the clip.

Generally, I find it better (in my work) to move the clip and not slip the contents. When you slip the contents, the starting and ending points of the shot will change, while in the other option they will not.

I find that when I have a clip out of sync, it is because I accidently moved the whole clip on the timeline, so I want to use the other option, not the slip.

Another way to accomplish this is to enable "All Tracks, Markers, and Regions" in auto ripple then enable auto ripple before deleting the section. I use this all of the time and it works well. Be sure to turn it off after the deletion unless you really need it.

Removing or deleting projects

I can't seem to find anywhere to delete or remove completed projects in Vegas 6.0d.

The only way I can figure out to do so is to delete all the associated files, and tell Vegas to forget it when I click on the remembered projects in the "File" menu.

Am I missing something, or is it just not there. I checked the program help, and looked through the manual index.

I manually delete unwanted project files and any associated files manually via Windows Explorer. I also leave the "open last project" option turned off so I can open the project I want opened.

HDV Re-compression

If you capture HDV m2t files and bring them into Vegas, but only edit the audio (mix an additional audio track or something like that) and print that back to HDV tape, does the video get re-compressed (lose a generation)?

What is the answer if you do cuts-only video editing?

Background: What I am thinking of is using double-system sound recording with and HC3 camcorder, which has no mic input. If a separate recorder was used for the main sound, could it be synced with the camera video in Vegas and read back to tape without reducing the video quality.

disable realtime timeline update?

is there any way to have it so the thumbnail images on the timeline are not continually updated when you zoom/scroll etc?

i have a decent computer, 1 gig ram, good processor, but my current project has like 10 tracks of video and whenever i zoom/out of timeline it reloads the thumbnails and i get performance issues. In actuality, i don't even need them since i know the times in the events that i'm working with that i need to go to.

second question (sorry to sneak in) Is there anyway to have the timeline show the time for each individual event as opposed to whole project. For example, lets say i have a 30 minute event on a track. I prewatched and i know the section i need to cut out and edit is at 4:55 of that event. However, because the timeline counts the whole project, i have to do alot of math and its a slow process, lets say event starts at 55, then i do 55 + 4.55, it's a bit tedious

thanks in advance for answers to both

Forum merge

When did this happen? I've been an infrequent visitor for the last few weeks and I only noticed it today. Couldn't find any threads on the subject either.

Anyway, I think this is a good move. I was getting quietly frustrated at the number of incorrectly posted topics in either the Vegas SD or Vegas HD forums.

Well done.

Neither did I, Ian.

But I reckon' this is where the general digital HD soup is simmering at the moment. So many gadgets and formats and platforms - that NOT having a combined forum must be a real pain. Or Sony had a word to say on the matter - lol!

The two were merged Wednesday afternoon (US time 7/19). Many forums were merged/moved to, hopefully, better organize things. Having a single venue for all Vegas questions (whether SD or HD) will make it easier to search through answers and ask questions without having to worry "Is this the right forum".
