24p footage + Vegas + AE = some ??'s

Hello all: well i've been preparing for some upcoming projects in which we're going to be shooting some 24p dvx footage and then using AE for some flashy music video effects, I've been honing up my AE trapcode skills etc. but have come up with many questions using Vegas with AE even after searching aroung the forums:

1. So, Vegas and AE don't share the same codecs so do you VEGAS + AE users edit and color correct your project in Vegas, then export uncompressed AVI sections to AE for fx then render out uncompressed AVI to pop back into Vegas for the final render and file export? Am I making this too complicated?

2. What frame rate should I set in AE for my project and render when working with 24p footage? 23.98, 24, 23.976? Pulldown turned off for the render?

3. Is it correct to assume that when rendering out to my uncompressed AVI that I should set field order to none for progressive frames? Will this do the trick?

4. Have you AE users experienced fx changes between a RAM preview and a render out? I had some light blowout effects that morphed into our logo which worked perfectly with my ram preview but when I rendered out at best quality, these blowouts were reduced and the fadein of my logo was exposed and thus the nice fluid effect ruined. (yes, I go to make movie under composition settings then set my render settings there, don't worry I'm not trying to file export).....

Any help would be much appreciated.

Snapshot in Vegas

Hello everyone,

This is my first time here, I would like to thank my friend showing me this board.

Ok, I was wondering how I can get a snapshot of a frame so I can edit it in Photoshop. I have used the snapshot button they have on the preview screen but if I were to import the edited frame back in I get the black bars from the top and bottom for the screen. Is there any easier, or better way to capture snap shot of a frame?

I'd like to stick to one program instead of having to edit something at home and having to take it to school to and edit in Premiere.

-Thank you in Advance

Yes. Just above the preview window is a series of buttons. The one on the right is "Save Snapshot". To get the best image you need to change the preview to Best (Full) first.

The copy to clipboard button does not incorporate some resolution
stuff which in turn results in the black bars. Click the button to
save the snapshot (as Edward said) to your disk (choose the PNG
format to not loose any information) and you should be fine!

Saving files to DVD

I have finished a project and done a ptt. I'd like to save all the project files to dvd also.
What files do I need to make sure I can load it back in to Vegas if needed? Obviously all the avi's of the clips, but what else? Veg file ect.

Thanks.

Forget the AVI's - they are still on your master tapes and you can recapture them. Generally speaking they are way too large anyway.

Save:
VEG file(s)
Media Files (images, music, etc...)
SFVidCap file(s) (made by the capture program - makes it easier to re-capture)


Alternately, just copy everything over to a hard drive for saving. That's what many people are doing today - just setting a hard drive on the shelf containing the entire project!

Duplicating a track of generated media

I have a presentation with a track consisting of only generated text media. I need to make several versions of this presentation in different languages so I planned on duplicating the generated media track and changing text to the appropriate language. Then mute/solo the appropriate tracks in publishing to create the correct version.

The Duplicate track feature won't work because it doesn't create a separate copy of the media. So if I modify text on the chinese track, the english track is also changed. And I can't seem to figure out how to select all the media for only one track to do a simple cut and paste. I thought this would be simple but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to copy and duplicate one track of generated text media.

It should work if you copy (CTRL+C) the event (the genereted
media) and the paste it in a new track. I've done this and works
here. I just tried it again with "text media" and works flawlessly
here in Vegas 5.0b. Dragged the text media to the timeline and
it created a new track. I then selected to insert a new track,
copied the event and then pasted it in the new track. It then
asks me if I want a reference or copy. I selected copy, changed
the text and I had two different generated media events!
