Vegas Prediction

I think the trend will be to native HDV editing. Premiere Pro 2.0 has it, and despite what some are postulating, in actual use I find it working pretty decently. Pinnacle Studio 10 Plus ( a consumer editor) is also going native HDV. It has some bugs still, but has the promise of fast rendering, because it only actually rerenders edited area of a clip. You would think Sony, a dedicated champion of HDV, would be working that way with Vegas--- they do own that outfit, right ?

It is a dilemna. I upgraded to from Premiere 6.5 to Pro 1.51, only to have Pro 2.0 come out a month later. Ended up paying $200 for each upgrade.

Follow up: I know Vegas does .m2t native edits, but I have heard a lot of complaints.

Neil- No matter what I set the preview window to, the preview in either external monitor will only improve when I enlarge the preview window in Vegas itself. I thought this might be a normal thing--does it happen to you?

for whatever reason the larger the preview screen the more it stutters even in "preview" quality-so for rough editing I leave the screen small and on "preview auto" then for finish edit and color work I use an external monitor and it seems to work better but for really fine stuff, I'll render a small clip to AVI and run it thru the external monitor just to double check it.

The latest version update info indicates it's now compatible with Vegas 6.

Animation, 3D Animation, and still pixel size?

1. I have been creating simple Flash animations for my video presentations at 720x480 pixels (output from flash at everything max) but after rendereing (at best) the animations become somewhat blocky and jittery (I edit the original pics in photoshop or Real Draw, export them as transparent ...? oops forgot the name..., then move them around in Flash). Is this blockyness/flickering normal? Can I possibly get a clean and nice animation? (maybe doubling the size of the original flash animation?)

2. And... exactly what size pixel screen size should I use for stills and animation programs to import into vegas?

3. Does anyone have a recommendation for an animation and or 3d animator for a resonable price the works well with Vegas. I am not looking to get heavily into it but it is nice to throw in some simple, fun and cool little animations here and there.

Thanks

Have you tried this (from Vegas help):

Reduce interlace flicker
(video only)
This switch can be useful in cases where the source material didn't originate as video and contains extremely high spatial or temporal frequencies.

When you watch the rendered (interlaced) output on video of this sort of media, you may see flickering or crawling edges if this switch is not applied

Enable this switch when using imported images that were not created using a video camera (such as photographs) or when using generated media or text.

Dual layer support was added in DVDA 3. You might be able to prepare a larger size disc in DVDA 2 and then use Nero to burn it. Not sure how the layer splitting will work in that case, though.

Don-Thanks for the response. It's not really a problem with choppiness, it's the resolution. Should've made that clear. When I switch to Best-Full preview setting it clears up just fine (thanks, Ed). It was having it in Auto mode that was giving me the problem, although I like your editing solution to this also.

DVD Architecture: Crazy, Part 2

NOTE: I deleted my initial post because I've since been running various tests to correct certain problems. Some things I've cleared up, other things I haven't. I posted in panic mode earlier and just babbled; if certain problems persist I'll update later in a hopefully coherent manner.

Thank you. :D

Output file doesn't match preview

Hi all,

I'm doing some track motion and cropping in Vegas, and I can't figure out why my rendered file doesn't match the preview in vegas. I don't want the 5 shots overlapping. I'm sure it's simple, but it's got me stumped. Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Steve

Ahem, please ignore this waste of pixel. I changed my project properties to widescreen, and hey presto...

Why does this happen:

My DVD Arch 2.0 program stops responding when I click on "Make DVD."; even after reinstallation. I get this error message: SzM Modname: hungapp. Is that enough to figure it out?

I have two other DVD apps on the hard drive (one is Sony); I also have a Sony external burner.

This is exasperating. Any insight welcomed!
