It might, depending on whether you can afford it, this is the best
thing you can spend the money on and you need it [ie, you can't
live with such rendering times].

Depends on what you want to do with the footage. But normally
I would agree with you that pal needs to be 25p, not 24p.

Okay, some basic theory on VOB files etc.

VOB files are MPEG2 program streams. They CONTAIN multiple
ELEMENTARY streams which contain things like, audio, video,
subtitles and other special things.

That being said I think a high end authoring application will
support loading of an MPEG2 program stream (VOB) file. But,
as you've pointed out Architect among others do not. This means
the file has to be split in its elementary streams (the video and
AC3 stream in this case). This is called de-muxing. The authoring
application will then re-mux these together for final authoring.

So can you split these files WITHOUT any re-encoding or quality
loss? Yes you can.

Go to www.doom9.org site and then into the Downloads.
Then go to the end of the page into the VOB Tools section. You
will find some tools there. Try them out and tell us if it worked.

The tools should be able to get you a .M2V (video) & .AC3 (audio)
file.

Good luck!

Vegas + DVD, and Excalibur.

Vegas was already excellent, Excalibur made it way better.

How do you reverse clips in Vegas

I know how to reverse clips in Premire, just just enter "-100" in the speed option. But can anyone tell me how to do it in Vegas?

Insert a VELOCITY ENVELOPE into the clip you are working on, pull it all the way down to -100%

Reversing a clip is VERY easy as long as you follow one simple rule: START at the END.

Just play the timeline and then STOP where you want the reversing to begin (i.e. at the END of the clip in forward motion). Now press "S" to split this clip at that point, add the velocity envelope t0 the RIGHT clip (you can delete the left side of the split) and change the velocity to a negative value.

Every wedding I do is a 2 camera ceremony. When I switched to Vegas life got easy, when I started using Excalibur life got great.
Now if I could just get my dog to understand the basics of editing life would be simply superb ;-)

Yellow video.

Ok, I've made a huge misstake and shot some video on a cruise ship and I didn't whitebalance (stupid me) The video is a bit yellow.. How do you recommend me to correct it in post?

deinterlace clips

I want to do the following action, previously performed in premiere, in Vegas 4:

place a clip on one track, deinterlace that clip with the Field Order on "Lower".

Then place a copy of the original clip on a superimposed track (i'm guessing it's the track above) and deinterlace that clip with the Field Order on "Upper" and set the opacity to 50%.

Any ideas? I haven't found a deinterlace setting or filter that affects the individual clips.

First off, what editing software are you using?

I'm using vegas, Although I don't think the help is software specific? I have to color correct, but are there better ways?

Cool, I was hoping it was Vegas. Well, it is kind of software specific since Vegas 4.0 has more color correction tools then some other software. There's a couple ways to do this, the easiest way would be to just use the "color correction" video effect, and mess around with them, make it more blue in the mids, or whatever looks right, or you can use the "color curves" also, and just tweak them yourself, basically take out some red and give it some more blue, etc etc....


There's some more involved techniques for stuff like this that I use sometimes in Vegas, but i'd have to write up a article for that. :D

Andreas,
It is entirely software related. How else would you color correct after it has been shot?
Listen to Alex, Vegas has 2 or 3 different ways to correct the situation.

I do listen to alex, he has already proven to me he knows what he talks about. I didn't mean to offend him.. What I mean by software specific was, whatever program I use I need to color correct. I know vegas is a good program for this.. I fiddled around with the colorcorrect but didn't get it as good as I liked it to be. So I thought I'd post here to get additional ideas on how to slove my problem.

I'll try once more to go about it as alex said.. Thanks!!

Try this. Right click on the event, scroll down to properties then check the reduce interlace flicker box.
