k...thx Glen. I think I will work with doing montage of sort. Like you said it may require more time than needed to patch up the shot.
Thanks again.....

The following has been fixed according to Sony:
  • A bug has been fixed that could prevent burning to -R/-RW media when using the Matsushita UJ-810 drive.
  • A bug has been fixed that could prevent burning to -RW media when using the LG/Iomega GSA-4081B drive.
  • A bug has been fixed that would prevent saving of chapter markers to MPEG files from the Timeline window.
  • A bug has been fixed that prevented preview on an external 4:3 NTSC monitor until you reapplied the NTSC DV setting in the Format drop-down list on the Video Device tab of the Preferences dialog.

I sometimes use comments, but not much. I do use it to get all
sort of info from my project into Excel though!

My main backup for all the footage are my tapes. I never re-use
them and they stay safe, dry and out of sun light. Then usually
the project sits on a harddisk here as well (depending on size)
and the full project is backupped to DVD. Including all source
files (which I have renamed to takes, scenes and status etc.),
project files, music, audio, effects, output (tests) etc. etc.

Thusfar I did not have any projects over 15 minutes, so usually
I'm able to hold it all on 5 DVD's or so.

"It is great for the people who want to bring over an AVI file and let DVD-A automatically pick the bitrate to get everything to fit. So it should not be a hinderance to you."

see i use the encoder within DVDA to determine the bitrate for projects over an hour and 10 minuts.. BUT if i were to add a file which required no rendering (ie an m2v file from Dolby Labs to be used as pre-menu video/ac3 it wants to re-encode it to "fit"

this i dont like and no matter what u do to try to turn that off, it wont let u.. :(

I don't have an MPEG2 file on the computer here for quick testing but the File - Optimize screen should allow you to set that any compliant files are to NOT be touched. However, I'll admit to having NEVER pressed the "Fit to Disk" button. I always render in Vegas and make sure my files are small enough (from the bitrate chart in the newsletter).

I'm not doubting what you're saying - just wondering if you can't reset it on the optimize screen.

Is it when you are exiting the capture program and it's asking to save the "sfvidcap" file? By saving that file, you can more easily recapture from tape should the need arise.

filters for converting video into cartoon-like animation???

I did some searching on the forum before posting, but didn't find this question answered.

What filter plug-ins can be used to make video look like a hand-drawn color animation? I would like specific filter combinations, and if possible, samples of the results. I'm looking for an effect similar to the "Waking Life" appearance.

Thanks,

Joseph Lawrence

Here's a "pencil sketch" option: http://users.rcn.com/rofrano/Video/t...cil_sketch.htm

You may be able to make some modifications to this to add the color back in.

Boris Continum Complete has a "Cartooner" effect, check out their website. I work in Avid, but doesn't Vegas also work with Boris?

yes edward, that's exactly what i was talking about. so each tape has it's own "sfvidcap" file?

how do you use these to recapture?

I usually let each PROJECT have it's own vidcap file. If you back up this file and the VEG file, you can quickly and easily recreate the entire project. Just open the "sfvidcap" file in the capture program, it will detect the files are missing, and then you can recapture.

While the vidcap file may not be 100% necessary, it's kind of useful to keep around.

When you start a new project, just do a "File - New" in the capture program.
