Michael,
Thanks for sharing this. I like the short film as well, with regard to cinematography and lighting.

I does not appear to be there. I guess I never missed it because I never used it in Vegas 4.

Arm for record

Have had a lot of fun recording into tracks - Mixing board with various intruments attached going into sound card going into Vegas. Interestingly it will not record to the drive that I keep
Vegas files in it will only work on the drive that has the actual
Vegas progam on. the manual says you can tell it where to record
the files to but it will not work on a drive that does not have the
program on it. No big deal but a little bothersome for media management.

I occurs to me that I always find the most complicated solution to a problem :-)

Thanks, Randall!

I do the same thing sometimes Peter!

I just posted a short tutorial on this in the Vegas FAQ at the following URL:

How do I create a Widescreen video from 4:3 source material?

Have you set the setting to record to the other drive? That setting is in File - Properties under the Audio tab.

Indeed - It starts and immediately stops recording, the cursor
still moves down the timeline but nothing is recorded. There
is then a message at the bottom right of my computer screen
(not in Vegas) saying Write Failure, all data has been lost.

how do i import a large frame size jpeg to standard frame size project?

i want to import a jpeg sequence with a frame size of 1350x720 into a project which uses standard PAL frame size of 576x720. when i do so, vegas distorts the image of the jpeg sequence so that it fits into 576x720.
is it possible to import the jpeg sequence in such a way that it keeps it's original frame size (1350x720)? later i intend to crop the jpeg sequence in vegas to 576x720.

Open Pan/Crop, Right-click the image, and you will see several different options. The one most used is "Match Output Aspect". You can also manually adjust the settings as needed.

hi ed. i think you misunderstood me. maybe i didn't explain the problem properly.

i know how to crop.

my problem is: when importing the larger frame, vegas autiomatically "squeezes" the large frame (1350x720) to the standard frame size (576x720) and distorts the image by doing so.

i want to import the larger file as is. but can't find how to do it.

You're right - I wasn't thinking of the File - Open - Image Sequence. However, I think it might still work.

Import it, open Pan/Crop, Right-click the image, and choose "Match Output Aspect".
