You're most welcome. I wish I could have a nickel for every time this has messed me (and others) up. I could buy Sony by now.

It's a little confusing. Just remember that the DVD Architect 24p templates are optimal, and you'll have no worries.

So the resulting movie is going to be shown this saturday night 4/15 at the San Francisco Film Arts Foundation. Thanks for you help and I hope anyone nearby can come check out the movie (Crossroads Gallery is the name by the way). See www.barewitness.com for more info.

Gregory, By default GearShift makes both a DV proxy and a CineForm AVI. This is probably what is eating up your hard drive space and your time. Just select (None) under HD Media and it will not make the CineForm files (only the proxies). GearShift will remember this setting for next time.

Cayman Graphics Power CG problem

Where do you install this software for it to show up as a plugin in "generated media bin" I installed it to the "c" drive successfully & the stand alone version is now on my desktop but cannot get it to show up as a plugin.
Tks,
John

You may need to drag the .dll to the Vegas workspace and drop it. I don't remember having needed to do that, but it's been a long time since I installed. should show up in the same place as your text generator/noise generator.

Hi Jamie,

The blending of your voice with the audio can be from several things. I gotta ask the obvious first (sorry) but are you monitoring with headphones to record? If your speakers are on, the mic will pick up the audio output from the speakers as you record. Next what audio device driver are you using? If it’s the Microsoft Sound Mapper, try changing it to the Windows Classic Wave driver. Then when you arm your track for recording, select your audio card microphone as mono (left channel only). This should record just from the mic and not include other inputs on your PC.

As for the noise, it shouldn’t be any noisier in VMS than the Windows recorder. Check to be use you are using the same inputs. Motherboard sound cards are noisy but they should be consistently noise regardless of what software you use.

Best way to split MPG for ease of use?

I have an MPG extracted / captured from a DVD-R that someone supplied me. The extracted MPG looks fine and it is a series of shots in one long clip. What I want to do is chop this up into just the clips I need for ease of assembly, etc. - rather than placing the entire clip in the timeline and working from that.

So, I separated the clip into what I wanted. Selected a loop to render. The problem is that when I do this the resulting MPG using Mainconcept MPEG2 template does not have the quality of the orginal shot due to what I am thinking is another round of compression.

The original clip was created using Microsoft Flight Simulator and is all graphics and animation. It looks fine in its orginal form. But when I cut it up and re-render into small individual shots it doesn't look as crisp. Thoughts?

Yea, I’m real happy with the PC I built. I’m glad to see others are happy with it too. ;-) You are going to love the AMD X2. They just rock!

(BTW Milt, I almost wet my pants watching Dog Man. That is simply brilliant! :-D)

Cayman Graphics install

Thanks Douglas, I got it to finally show up.For whatever reason, and it's probably my ineptness, it's working.

My system is almost a clone of John's (but I built mine first!), and I looooooove it. Best machine I've ever had. I wish I could take it with me to boot up in Panera Bread, where I am now, but you can't have everything . . .
