try to keep the speed at exactly 1/2 of the original (go to properties). Depending on the format you might even enable the 'reduce interlace flicker'-filter.

If you do have to have another speed then 1/2nd, just enable the reduce antiflicker.

Depending on the speed and your likings: enable or disable smartrender: If fluent images have the priority on focussed images: enable it. If scharp en focussed images are of utmost importance, disable it (but you'll get less smooth video). - I personally like to disable it and be sure not to slow down too much (never more then 1/2). If I MUST use 1/4th of the speed, I still disable it - But that's a matter of taste. I personnaly dislike the blurry images more then the low framerate (if there's a lot of movement in the picture - of course)...

DVDA 3 audio warbles - deadline and immediate help needed!

I am in a last minute bind here. The audio for this DVD is fine, I listened to it with my media player - but when I burn it to DVD it warbles - like a puttering of a motor. I have tried several types of DVD's mfgters and nothing seems to be working to fix it. Any ideas and I need them quick please!

Is the audio PCM or AC3? Does it "warble" all the way thru or in certain parts or sporadically? Please provide a bit more info so we can try to help you

Thanks Don,

It warbles from the get-go, like a stuttering. I have recently rendered out the audio separate as an AC3 (it was originally render as a separate audio file when I rendering it out with the video, but rendered at the same time, if you understand what I mean) and I am going to try and insert that and see what happens. It is really weird because I burned a DVD today with no problem, I re-rendered the video (which took 3.5 hours), and previewed it with DVDA, listened, no problems - but as soon as I prepare and burn the DVD, it sounds like a stutter all the way through...

EDIT :
Fixed it. Took out the audio and re-added it in DVDA, sucks to be me, went through about 10 blank/lightscribe DVD to find out...thanks anyways for your help Don

You can if you have the codec installed. You can get the codec for free from Avid.

Note that you can only render DVCPRO HD as Quicktime with those codecs, though.

I saw at the other forum you got it fixed. Glad you did. Sometimes things happen for no appearant reason. Case in point, I have had 2 instances in the last year (which I guess is a very very small % considering the number of DVDs I burn) where all audio is sync'd-in the Vegas project, in the rendered AVI in the rendered MPEG, in DVDA preview-everything is A OK! Burn the DVD and certain parts of the audio fall out of sync, about 3 to 5 frames-just enough to make me crazier than I normally am. First time I just tried EVERYTHING to fix it then finally just said the hell with it and re-rendered the AC3. Reburned another DVD and BAM! perfect. No rhyme, no reason, nothing different than the first render. OH well, ain't technology wunnerful! :-)

Frame rate changing proportionaly

For example, I wanna change a footage from 25fps to 20fps. Ok, there is a way for that purpose. But the result is every 20 frames on and the last 5 frames off per second, so 20fps. BUT: is there a software which can remove for example every 5th frame, so the result to be again 20fps but not without the last 5 frames??? Interesting question, huh? I hope you understand what I mean. Any ideas???

I could not get my head around the question, but I am sure a retiming plug-in, such as the one in After Effects 7 can do it, if anything can. Alternatives are Twixtor and ReTimer.

So, are you slowing the event using a velocity envelope?

What is the equivalent to Posterize in VV?

I am trying to find a nice equivalent to the filter in Photoshop called posterize. IS there anything like this?

Look, I mean that:
20fps -1 2 3 4 x 6 7 8 9 x 11 12 13 14 x 16 17 18 19 x 21 22 23 24 x .
So "x" is every removed frame. I want exactly that as result from 25fps footage, instead of that:
20fps - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 x x x x x . So "x" is the removed 5 frames in the end, i.e. that's what happens if I change the 25 fps footage to 20 fps in Vegas. I JUST WANT TO AVOID REMOVING OF THE FRAMES IN THE END, WHICH MAKES STRANGE MOVEMENT OF DESTINATION VIDEO. I just want to make it removing every 5th frame instead of every last 5 frames.
So, give me any advice and solution.

How to use a mask for compositing?

I have a black and white picture I want to use as a mask - how do I go about using it with compositing? I am going to use it instead of greenscreening to alpha channel the black. I think I can do it in Vegas, but I want to know the steps if someone is kind enough to show me.
