I dunno what's going on. The video displayed in the Vegas editing environment, when played back, is smooth and sharp. The resulting rendered WMV is jerky, as if frames are missing.
My project settings match my render settings as best as can be.
Field order -- none (progressive scan)
pixel aspect ratio - 1 (square)
frame rate - 29.97 (NTSC)
Full rendering resolution quality - Best
Deinterlace method - Blend fields
Audio - stereo, 16 bit depth, Resample method - best
Video rendering quality - Best
Mode - CBR
format - WMV 9
Image size - DVD quality (640x480)
Pixel Aspect Ratio - 1.0
Frame rate - 29.97 (NTSC)
Seconds per frame - 3
Video Smoothness - 100
Mode - CBR
Format WMA 9.2
Attribs 128 Kbps, 44 Khz, Stereo (A\V) CBR
Bit rate - Internet/Lan - 1 M
The result is jerky, as if it's missing frames. I tried lowering the Video SMoothness to 90, but that results in blending of frames (thanks to having deinterlace settings = blend). IN THE EDITING ENVIRONMENT, THE PREVIEW IS SUPERB!
The input is AVI, captured at (Well the screeen says) 30 FPS, but it may be rounding up from 29.97.
What am I doing wrong?
I don't care if it's MWV or MPG or whatever. I just want a 640x480 video that's as smooth as in the editor. How do I get there?
