I believe Scenarist requires an elementary stream. You would need to check the "elementary stream" checkbox when encoding the MPEG2 file.

The undersample rate allows you to simulate a lower framerate. Should not be needed for slowmotion, though.

Charlie- move the footage and Veg files to the IOMEGA drive and bring it over. I'll hook it up and see if I can't figure something out. Maybe thursday or friday night. Call me and let me know.

Adi, why don't you simply give DVA the avi file without rendering to mpeg in Vegas?
Prepare and burn should work fine in DVA and you'll have the mpeg file for future copies. This way you are also flexible to adjust the bitrate. If you give Architect too big mpeg file it might reencode.

I will be able to see later this week If I have the same trouble and check back in, I wish i wasnt so busy I would try it tonight.


I am not sure I ever used 120 files (are you talking transitions, music, filters and such or just mT2s?) even for a 1 hour + wedding film but I will be sure to keep track when I finish

edward, you were on the money!!! i checked "elementary stream", sent a sample mpeg-2 to the studio and now scenarist recognizes the file. thanks!!!

now, i can check to see if my problem is software based or not.

DVDA 2 will also recognize elementary streams. DVDA 1 would not. So it is possible that you could simply use elementary streams for both.

Hi Mark.
No transitions. Not sound yet just clips. No color corrections or any sort of filters. I can imagine what is going to happen with all this stuff. By the way my computer is now slouch ether. Pentium 4, 3.4. Raid 2 HD Western Digital Raptor 74 gig each. 2 gig 2 channels ram. Radeon 9800 Pro. I think it’s limitation of Vegas. But i would be appreciated for any type of help and suggestion. Thanks.

Much more RAM is needed when processing HD, else the system spends all its time paging data into and out of the pagefile. 2 Gigs is the minimum recommended!

wowsers, I am in trouble to start with, I am running 1 gig Ram with almost the same CPU as Michael ( with a Abit IC7 Max3 motherboard, 74 gig Raid Rapters, crappy ole GeForce 5200 and Sound Audigy) , with little troubles upto 20 minutes on the timeline now with multiple transitions and even some color correction experimentation.

whats the largest RAM you can buy? I guess Im gonna need more when its render time

I have solved my problem; this is not the easiest way, but its work for me. I use Vegas foe smaller number of clips 15-20, I do everything what is necessary, composing, color correction etc. Then I render them in transport stream, and combine in MPEG editor, I forgot the name, which came with JVC. This program handle transport files very well. But still maybe buying Aspect HD not a bad solution either.

Turn the auto-crossfade on/off by hitting ctrl+shift+X.

There is also a button for it - usually at the top - looks kind of like bunny ears (or an "X")

peace
