Thanks Seth. Today I downloaded the Vegas 7.0e patch in hope some stabilizer has been implemented, but unfortunately it's still not there...

The Virtualdub plug-in DeShaker, as well as the 2d3 SteadyMove Pro - they both work on avi only, right? Or can I apply them to m2t's?

i would reco,end you use Huffy YUV or Sony YUV as these are 422 colour space and use less compression, but not as much as uncompressed.
In turn, the processed repaired footage will be nigh on identical to the original, unlike streadyhand which is good, but also changes the luminance of the clip

Deshaker is still king, and no vegas doesnt have, and more than likely wont ever have a stabilising plugin

Peter, in layman's terms - I have an .m2t clip in Vegas, and, before loading to Virtualdub, I render it as what? Windows avi?

Frankly, I'd be grateful for a hint on the entire workflow for HDV. I have a PC fast enough to not use intermediate avi's; I do my basic cuttin/trimming/cc-ing on raw m2t's then render to mpeg-2. In order to minimize recompressions, when in the workflow should I consider using Deshaker, when I come across a shaky scene? Should I export it as Windows avi from my Vegas timeline, de-shake it, save as uncompressed avi (have lots of disk space), and replace it in Vegas timeline with the de-shaken version, then render everything to the final MPEG-2 as usual?

Or is there a better way? TIA!

Even before getting an answer to my previous question, I have a next one: I have given Deshaker a go and can't even assess how good it is on its main task, because I have problems with the output .avi file (I'm using uncompressed):

- even though defined as 1440x1080, HDV 1.33 pixel, the otput is squeezed 4:3

- the output seems to be slow-motion, have no idea why!

Anybody?

PS. Strange; the de-shaken clip plays 4:3 and slowed-down on its own, but is OK when imported back to Vegas! The original avi I exported from Vegas (the one before deshaking) plays OK also outside Vegas... Why is that?
