Edward;
I have a similar problem.
I output my rough edit as an avi file to a third party dvd creator and see MAJOR pixelation in some spots. The pixelation is not on the original tape on my 35 inch tv playing the same clips straight out of my DVC-80. Could it be the dvd program's compresion codec causing this? I'm using Roxio something or other that came with my dvd burner just so I could get it out until I can afford the upgrade to Vegas 5+DVD. Would it look better to output to MPEG-2 or .avi from Vegas 4 to the Roxio program or does it matter?

How do we share ALT+D Workspace Layout Files?

It would be really "neat" if all of us could "share" our layouts. Where are the Layout file/s? What are they called and what would it need for us to do make use of them?

Just to say that V5 just gets better and better ... this ALT+D really has broken through yet another barrier in me being able to get "closer" to my project development - and gets the NLE out of my face!

Grazie

We should do lunch some time since we are only 50 miles apart.
I only know of one other Vegas user on the Front Range and he is
as new as me

Definitely not set on the look, just would like to achieve something
similar 'sometimes'.

Yes, it *could* be caused by the Roxio encoding. I don't know anything about what Roxio uses for encoding. If it will accept MPEG2 files, you might try encoding in Vegas instead.

SVCD is 480x480 pixels with a maximum data rate of about 2500k/second. The horizontal resolution and the limited data rate is simply not enough to produce high quality video.

vegas suddenly rendering bad mpegs

until today i have had no problem rendering projects to mpeg2.
but today i tried rendereing a project and the mpeg file would not play on either winamp or microsoft mediaplayer.

winamp would just not play the mpeg. the microsoft media player would collapse and say: catastrphic error.

why is this happening?

i have done nothing different than in the earlier renders which were fine.

i render to mpeg2 and use the PAS DVD template.

i tried rendering to mpeg1. same results.

i tried playing a different mpeg file, not rendered with vegas. played perfectly.

i double checked all the parameters. i tried rendering again. but with no success.

finally i DID manage to play the mpeg files on a friends computer with Sonic CinePlayer. but other players reject it.

any ideas?

Have you loaded any new software on your machine?

Have you done a virus scan lately?

Good luck.

i do virus checks daily. and yes, i did add new software. buy why should this have any effect on vegas' rendering process?

could uninstalling vegas and reinstalling it help?

this is beginning to worry me.

i rendered the project to .avi
this seems to work fine with all mediaplayers. but i noticed that the quality is really bad. i DID use multiple effects on the video, such as color curves, film effect and color correction, which could explain loss in quality, but the image is pixelated. i can actually see pixels moving on the screen (especially in bright areas). this is really wierd. i'll do some more testing. but if you have any suggestions or ideas, i'd be really happy to hear them. i have a video project i to screen on a large screen in one week and what i have now is no good.

thank you,
adi

Try reinstalling Vegas to see if it can straighten out whatever your other install changed.

try to do a pre-render (shift+B)

the stutters should not show in the final render, maybe your resources aren't enough to display.

may also want to up the RAM avail for pre-render
