Re: avchd (mts) to SD DVD via vegas pro 10

Just tried the AVISYNTH method you spoke about earlier. Results are excellent
Here's my workflow, can you confirm I'm doing it the correct way.
Edit as normal (AVCHD Clips) project settings standard 1080-50i (1920x1080)
Render as.... using the Video for Windows (avi) type and the 1080-50i YUV template
customised to use the Lagarith Codec and project set to best.
Calling the file <source.avi> to allow the script to pick it up.
After render run VirtualDub, drag the script into the workspace, set compression under video menu to Lagarith and set to fast recompress and save as AVI.
After render, create new project in vegas, using the PAL DV Widescreen Template, set to upperfield first (everything else default). Load the new AVI. Go to clip properties and uncheck maintain aspect ratio.
Render as... using the Mainconcept mpeg2 type and the DVD Architect widescreen Stream Template using default settings. And finally load into Architect to burn the disk.

Have I missed anything? Seems to work, results look very good!

Yes using that work flow.

Glad you find the results good. Camera pans and movement I think looks better using this method as de-interlacing isn't used which can add all sorts of funny artefacts.
