5 minutes = 300 seconds
100 MB = 800 Mb (8 bits per byte)
800/300 = 2.667 Mbps

Here is the simple calculator I use
http://www.videohelp.com/calc.htm

Vegas could provide an estimate of file size - doesn't matter if it is variable rate; for variable rate you specify an average rate, and that can be used in the calculation. It would need to do the same for the audio (as generally these are rendered separately). But it doesn't....

Since the pixel aspect ratios are different the clips will never match full frame. What you need to do is open Event Pan/Crop on the M2T file, Right-click on the frame and select Match Output Aspect. This will crop out the black so that the HDV footage matches the PAL DV Widescreen project aspect.

Oh. Oops. I misread the original post and then misunderstood the question. John's right.

Thanks, Mark. That calculator will be very handy.

Scene Detection Problem

Vegas 6, Scene Detection Box Checked, sometimes gives me 2 or three files (out of many record start stops on the tape), generally doesnt. In v5 it sould give me a seperate scene for each time record was started and stopped. I'd like 6 to do the same. Any ideas? Thanks!

Is the clock set in the camera? Scenes are detected via jumps in the date/time code. If the clock is not set, scene detection will not work.

Overclock, Borders on composite

Two more questions for today =)

The first, is there a way to get more than 300% velocity on video?

The second (I have done this before, but it was two years ago and have since forgotten) is how do I put a border around a track I have reduced in size?

Thanks guys!

1) Yes there is. Also set the playback rate (i.e. hold down the CTRL key and resize the event smaller) and you can get up to 12x.

2) Look to the left of the word "Border" for the small triangle. Click it. (It's the "pre/post" flag).

Edward's probably having dinner so I'll take a shot at it.
Apply the Border FX and then look for that triangle.
It makes a major difference to the FX which way it faces.
