problem with snapshot pics

Vegas 8 pro. Preview quality is best full. Take a shot of the last frame in the clip, then import the image so it looks like the video stops. In vegas all looks good, the video itself the still images has serious jagged edges. I used hdv, wmv, and dvd ready mpeg2 all with the same result. Anyone?

Hi,
check the Deinterlace method option before taking snapshots. Set it to to any value other then None (Interpolate best for fast motion, Blend for static scene)

Martin, use a Velocity Envelope instead and change the velocity to 0% at that point. You'll need two velocity nodes at the very end - one at 100% and one at 0% so you get the sudden stop.

Another option, turn Looping off on that clip and just make it longer - it it's truly the last frame of the clip. If it's NOT the real last frame, make a "sub-clip" out of that segment and, with looping turned off, make it as long as you want.

Bottom line, you don't need to take a snapshot to get a freeze frame.

If you're asking where the deinterlace options are, they're under File - Properties. Most of the scripting options for taking a snapshot adjust this for you automatically.

However, I still think you're better off using one of the other options instead.

I Agree with Edward.
I used to use the "freeze frame" option until I tried the Velocity envelope technique.
Much easier & better way of doing it !!
