Hmm effects bypassed? sure there is a check at the top in the plug-in... did you maybe bypass the effects in the preview window... forget what the icon looks like but it has a little triangle next to it.

My guess would be that you turned on "split screen". It's the button just above the preview screen that's a circle that's half light and half dark.

Is there a file that these settings are stored in so I can change some and have a back up if something goes wrong... don't really want to start from scratch from one setting.

It's called "The Registry" - i.e. Windows Registry!

Yeah, that's what I figured so I dug through it looking for the keys but I couldn't find it.

I'm no dummy when it comes to the registry and the "damage" it can cause and I know how to back it up... I do IT work for a living so I'm not afraid to dig into it.

Render Again and Again !?!

Hey guys,
I have rendered a project to mpeg 2 for DVD. It took over 8 hours to render it. After reviewing it, I notice there were simple corrections that need to be made.

Q1: Do I have to re-render the original project and wait another 8+ hours or can I just edit the mpeg 2 clip and render as a mpeg 2 clip? Will there be any loss in quality bo using the second method?

Q2: Also, Is there any way to merge multiple mpeg 2 clips into one to be view as a movie in DVDA? Or will I have to place all the clips on the timeline in Vegas and select and render them as one clip?

Q3: I have old clips that I want to put on the web. I have deleted the original avi clips for the sake of space. Is it safe to render a mpeg 2 file as a wmv or rm file? Will there be an enormous loss of quality when rendering from a mpeg2 file instead of the original avi file?

Thank you for your help.

Q1: Yes, you need to render the whole thing again unless you use some other program that can cut MPEG2 without re-rendering.

Q2: Yes, you can "End Action" from the first one to the second one. There will be a slight delay as this happens and the length of the delay will vary from player to player.

Q3: It's "safe" but the quality won't be as good as it would be using the original files. Just try it and see if it looks fine to you.

Q1 (Rev): After editing, is it ok to re-render the original MPEG2 as a MPEG2 without loss of quality?

Q2,Q3: Thank you! I will try it.

Rendering MPEG2 to MPEG2 will decompress and recompress EVERY frame. You're better off going back to the original source file.

Sony Vegas Movie + DVD Platinum tweaks?

Sorry if the question has been answered before, but is there any form of video hardware acceleration possible with this software? Also, I know that Vegas 6 has support for multi-core and dual CPU's, but does SVMD6 Platinum have the same capability?

Mice

Hey - sorry to bother but I'm baffled. I recently cleaned a lot out of my hard drives, ok good, but now when watching anything, preview window, movie, whatever, it stutters incredibly when I move my mouse, video, even audio, any ideas at all? It never did this before..

Not sure if this is it but anytime you "clean up" your Hd you should do a defrag (along with a good weekly defrag routine).

Do as I say, not as I do ;)

***Guess I'm quicker on the trigger ;)

Did you defrag your hard drives after cleaning them out? Simple thing to miss, but might be the cause.

(Edit : Yes you are Kevin, yes you are! :D )
