I'll try to do that and all of my videos are CBR so I know the bitrate of for all of my .wmv files.

Vegas 7.0b and HDV 720 24p

Hi
I just instaled Vegas 7.0b and hasn`t found the option in the template and to render to HDV 720 24p that I intend to use with my JVC HD 100a.
Should I do this template and render option myself and it`s going to work?
Thanks
Ron

You can still preview out. If it's raw footage which isn't recompressed (as in, no effects on it), it'll look stretched vertically in the preview -- but if it's recompressed, it'll appear as 16:9 letterboxed.

That's exactly it... if there were any more features I sure haven't touched or found a need for them, and v6 takes twice as long to load up and has the computer "chattering" a few minutes after I close it.

v5 is just less power hungry.

Disable the Media Manager, and those problems go away.

Then, you can take advantage of things like project nesting.

Ron, just select the HDV 25p option and change the frame rate to 23.976 and then save/rename it as your own. It would definitely work fine.

Ok, I just tried re-encoding my files with a audio stream: Didn't work...

Tried transcoding in VLC: first 6-10 seconds is always skipped out!!!

Edit: Actually, I'm having a symptom that Sony was trying to prevent in 7.0b.

"Fixed a problem that could cause a frame stutter when reading some Windows Media Video files"... NOT.

I've downgraded to Vegas 7.0a and the video's no longer stuttering, BUT, when I render a composited scene in .wmv, full streams were sometimes fully ignored!

I've re-upgraded to 7.0b and am still waiting for a solution to this bug that makes video only .wmv files play like a really bad 24p to 30p conversion in both preview and rendering.

Urgent! Must get file size under 6MB... BY NOON.

Hi. I have what seems to be a simple, but pressing matter at hand. There's a 223 MB .avi file (exactly one minute long, includes audio) and I'm trying to Render it on Vegas 6 as an mpg so that it weighs no more than 6 MB.

I have to submit the file and the company I'm sending it to specifically state that the file must be no larger than 6 MB.

In the "Render As..." dialogue box, I selected "Custom..." and under the Video tab, tried decreasing frame size and the video quality. But no matter which frame size or video quality I choose, the outcome is ALWAYS a 14.3 MB file.

1. How can I get that file down to under 6 MB?
2. How is it that varying frame size and/or video quality, has no affect on file size?

Thanks!!!

You must decrease the bitrate to make the file size smaller.

Vegas 7 Help..

New to video editing, I'm using a two camera setup and am shooting local bands. Both cameras are HDV Sony HDR-FX1 camera's and I'm trying to edit video in Vegas 7 but am having a very hard time switching back and forth between the videos both on the time line.

Does anybody know of a very good, relatively inexpensive tutorial for getting up and running with Vegas 7?

Any help is greatly appreciated,

Jon

It sounds like you need a multi-camera editing plug-in. If you only have two cameras you can use the free DoubleTake script from VASST. If you need more cameras there is also VASST infinitiCAM, VASST Ultimate S, and Excalibur from Edward Troxel. Using any of these scripts will make quick work of a multi-camera edit. Here is a tutorial for using Doubletake.

Wait a sec, I just checked another wmv file with Video and Audio and it stuttered too! Is it something to do with the encoder?

Terribly sorry for the triple post...

Jack, there really isn't enough info here... somehow you need to narrow in on where the problem is.

Output some DV-AVIs from Vegas and take them through the freeware Windows Media Encoder from Microsoft. Use identical settings on the same AVI for WM output from Vegas and see what you get. Try it from 6, 7...

Are these playback issues showing up on just your encoding machine? Have you tried the files on other PCs? Do you restart your encoding machine, or just go to standby or hibernate?

Sorry I can't be of more direct help.
