Pixelating on highlight vid
I was previewing my latest highlight wedding vid on my 50" plasma and noticed some pixelating especially between transitions. How can I avoid that? Are there certain settings I can select to get the best possible quality? I am using vegas 8.0b

What format did you edit? HDV? MPEG2? Did you render out using "Best" video quality?

I rendered to mpeg2 format using DVD NTSC template. I've done many highlight vids and never noticed this kind of pixelating.

One other thing
Hi again

Had to mention this, I have been having the same thing happen since allot of my customers have been watching either Blu-Ray or high def TV.

SD just does not look as good anymore to me either.

are you previewing real time from timeline?

try to re-render your transition. it fixed my problem in fcp.

hope it helps

Render with high constant bit rate MPEG, not variable. It will do low bit rate on black fades, and the result is pixelation...

You didn't say what format you edited with.
If you edited in HDV and are delivering in SD, then make sure that you have render quality set to Best, not Good in the render preferences.

Vegas does an excellent job of scaling, but for best results, a setting of "Best" in the render settings will yield the optimal results.
