Have a blast!

Thank you Edward,

I found the way to get into the internal preference. By apply your method to it, I was able to customize the screen the way I wanted.

Excalibur and Video Track FX

I color corrected camera #2 to better match #1, but the corrections don't carry over when I run the MultiCam Wizard. Do I have to render camera#2's track to save the corrections before running the wizard?

Apply the effect to the EVENT instead of the TRACK. If applied to the event, it will be moved with the event to the Master Track. If applied to the track, it will remain on that track and all events moved to the Master track will NOT see it.

As an alternative, you can apply it to the MEDIA in the Media Pool. Just save a preset of the effect on the track and apply that preset to the clip in the Media Pool and you'll be done.

Sony Vegas Pan/Crop

I was trying to apply pan-crop event on my still photo in Vegas. Everything works well, but...I have a photo mosaic image which is basically an image rendered out of many other images. When I try to zoom in on the image using pan-crop and keyframes the quality of the image degrades a lot. To test I zoomed in on the image in Photoshop and quality stays pretty much the same. So, is the problem in Vegas or my image. Also, I import image at original resolution 4000x3000px should I bring it down to 720? But then when I zoom in on the image the individual images become pixelated.

thanks,
Alex

<<<-- Originally posted by Mark Paschke : actually Im using the JVC HD10U, which will make a difference. -->>>

Then set up a new template in exactly the same fashion as I outlined above, but with the following settings:

width: 1,280 height: 720

field order: none (progressive)

Pixel aspect ration: 1.0000 (square)

Frame rate: 29.97 (NTSC)

full frame resolution quality: Best

motion blur type: Gaussian

Deinterlace method: none

Save as JVC HD10u, so you can select the template from the template type dropdown list whenever you require it...

Thanks Much Steve ( as always)

I had donethis with these settings but I am still getting weird glitchy results, maybe TMPGe will fix this when it encodes

If you are, indeed, zooming with Pan/Crop, you will be using the FULL resolution of the image.

If you, instead, are actually using Track Motion, you will be zooming in on the video frame instead resulting in a degraded image.

Wavelet is neat, but wasn't fractal compression the way to go for
great compression levels without (too) much quality loss? I
remember dabbling with fractal algorithms a couple of years ago,
also for image blowup (which looked real good, but was painfully
slow).

Have you tried just using the CFHD *.avi's that AspectHD creates rather than encoding uncompressed in Vegas?

I've had a problem with getting ConnectHD (uses the same underlying codec as AspectHD) to work at the moment so I can't replicate your circumstamce, but I believe the CFHD avi's should load into TMPGEnc. According to Cineform's product info they should anyway......

groovy thanks for that mate!!!

Actually its only foir live demos on some Vegas pods we've built. Were running the new HDV plugin for capture and project settings.

Its still in its early stages... i think to early right now as its quite system draining.. heres hoping they fix the cpu/ram resource issue in V6... at teh moment vegas isnt using as much of teh system grunt as it could..

thanks again for the loan, i;ll let u know how it goes!

Convert the files using the Demo version of Cineform's codec, or convert the media to Huffyuv.
If you use Cineform, getting 25p or 50i playback is crazy simple. Native m2t streams will NEVER playback at full rate on today's computers, MPEG is just simply cruel.
