Even if you got it to work, the colors wouldn't be accurate. Preview via firewire to see exactly what you will be sending to tape.

Thanks for the advice, but i di not seems to find the tool button to allow me to do a freeform maskout for vegas like photoshop.
Wondering if vegas has such function at all?

Suppposedly, the Parhelia does calibrate it's NTSC output (has full controls), but if it's not an option, I will stick with the firewire output.

Thanks for the info.

If you want people to see the commercial, do not put much information at the bottom. Put a web address, add shadow and let it stand still. That looks professional. The postal address and whatever will be at the web address anyway, and if they don't pick up on that, they won't pick up on your postal address and whatnot.

Am I The Only One Who Can't Import Into Vegas?

I've read the other threads. I have Vegas 4.0d (not the +DVD version). I've renamed the .m2t files from this site to .mpg and
was able to play in Media Player 9 but get the following message
when I try to import to Vegas: "An error occured while opening one or more files, the file format plugin for the specified file was not properly initialized." Any thoughts would be appreciated.

trix

did you do a conversion from transport stream to program stream (demuxing) on the m2t files first?

Do this using the HDTVtoMPEG2 app v1.09

VEGAS:
have you download the mailconcept HD codec?

You have to do the masking by using other tools such as the secondary color correction tool. This will allow you to create a mask based on a color.

John,
Thanks. No, I haven't done either of these. Are both these required prior to editing in Vegas?
If you could describe the workflow (for example "first do this,
second do this", etc.) this would be helpful.
At any rate, do you know where to get the Mainconcept HD codec?
Dave

I've been told Vegas v4 reads TS files directly.

thanx for the response,
i tried doing it to dv avi, however it came up with the same unknown error.

its not an urgent or extremely important project, however it eventually worked and aretefacts were actualy very minimal, which surprised me...

usually i work in raw formats as much as posible, but this jsut baffled the hell out of me...

i thought it was heat also.. but the system was running extrmely cool consideirng the environmental temps

Vegas 4 does read the transport streams directly. You have to have registered the program and it should then download the mainconcept codec, and after that you should be able to directly edit the transport streams.

Does Vegas4 use YUV or RGB?

My understanding is that it is RGB.

Not specifically. You can use the cookie cutter fx for a rough effect, using keyframes. I'm trying a demo of Adobe After Effects using the "vector paint" tool to make a moving mask. The process is called "rotoscoping" and there's apparently no easy war to accomplish it. Basically, you have to "paint" virtually every frame to achieve a satisfactory effect.
