60p, vegas and FX1?

A friend of mine was asking this the other day:

"I need to know how to use bobbing. I want to take high shutter 60i video from the FX1 and bob it to make it 60P (obviously at half resolution). Take each field and squeeze it down into one solid frame (I'd convert to 960x540). I know you can do it... I just don't know how. So, being that I'm using Sony Vegas 7, how does that happen?"

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Heath

Export with a frame rate of 59.94 (not 29.97) and as progressive.

Will it be HDV or down-converted?

Thanks,

Heath

You can choose whatever resolution you want.

Didn't work how? It wouldn't render at all, or wouldn't print back to HDV tape, or . . . ?

I just tried it and it worked just fine. How do you know it's not progressive?

If you bring into the Media Pool and right-click it for "Properties," what do the stream properties say?

What were your exact render settings?

I am doing this for my friend and told him to join and provide info. I'm a Final Cut Pro user, he's the Vegas cutter.

If you know exactly what you want to do with pixels, fields, etc. an avisynth filter could be made pretty readily to do what you want.

Yes, have him jump in and say exactly what his render settings are. This should work with no problem.
