.....

Could you please post the script here, or give us a link.

I find it crazy that a .wmv file won't work in a MS product, and it requires a .mov file. Not saying that you are wrong, I just find it strange.

I'm on FP 2003 at home and I'm not seeing this issue, but I'm at work where we have FP 2000.

Thanks. I never intended to slow it down, it was just how it turned out.

I need help with Flix Pro in Vegas

I downloaded the Flix Pro demo to convert video into vector animation. Pretty handy tool. Unfortunately, the file is saved as a SWF file and I need a file I can import into vegas. Anyone have any idea how to do this?

Thanks

You know I thought it would too, but Vegas didn't recognize it.

If there's no way to use SWF files in Vegas does anyone know of a program available to make avi or mpg files with vector animation?

If yoru using flash I think it has enough output formats that you might be able to import to Vegas. I thought it had an AVI option but I could be wrong.

Vegas won't read flash files. Use some other software to convert it to an AVI file and you'll be fine.

Can someone explain how the undersample rate affects the "ghosting". . .e.g. the higher the number the _____ ?

I'm not absolutely sure it does, but I thought it was worth a try. If Edwards assumption was right (about the "extra" frames) I thought undersample would be a way to get rid of them without re-adjusting the speed.

Anyway, here's what the manual says:
"The Undersample rate box allows you to simulate a lower frame rate. For example, an undersample rate of 0.5 plays the event at half its original frame rate. Each frame plays twice as long as in the original media file, creating a strobe effect."

On closer inspection though, it seems lowering the undersample rate does the same as disabling resample, only with greater control, because you can fine-tune it.

Any suggestions on a program to convert the SWF to AVI? I don't even know where to begin looking for something like that.

I checked to see if Flix Pro could render as avi, but from what I can tell it can't.

Surprisingly with google I found a couple of programs that say they can convert swf to avi. I'll list them here for anyone who may be interested in the future.

One is winmpg and the other is called magicSwf2Avi

The cheap little Screenblast (vegas's little bro) will imprt flash files from what I have heard. That alone might be woth getting a copy. Hopefully they will add that in Vegas 5.

Screenblast Movie Studio:
Increased format support — Support for import, editing, transcoding, and export of Windows Media® 9 video format, AVI's, Macromedia® Flash™ file format (.SWF), MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and other popular formats.
