Iīve been (and sort of am) suffering from the good olīinterlacing issue where lines appear when things move. When i set up the project properties to Field order: "none (progressive scan)" the lines are removed but things still appear thorny while moving. Although i understand that the problem has to do with the interlacingprocess i havent really been able to comprehend what i should be doing with my project to make this thing go away. Is it a correct assumption that the settings in project properties should be equal to the type of capturing my camera has made? Would this then be PAl DV if my camera is a Panasonic NV-GS27 with PAL?
If not iīm practically clueless as to how to determine what settings are appropriate in Project properties.
However, i have been tampering so many times with the interlacing methods (or lack there of) in both project properties and render as that iīm starting to wonder if something is just fundamentally wrong with the way the project has been captured. Actually, the interlacing isnt the only problem. Both the rendered product (iīve tried mpeg2 and AVI) and the preview is in a state of unrealistically bad quality. No matter how much i try to spice up the quality it always turns out equally bad.
Itīs especially apparent in one scene where there are a lot of lights on the ceiling and the camera moves alot. This causes the lights to splash out making the scenario look like something experienced while on drugs. The bad focus doesnt exactly help either but is completely unexplainable since it canīt be
spotted on the tapes.
Basically i would really appreciate a step to step approach to determining what settings are wrong (or if it actually is the footage thatīs really bad for some reason, god forbid) and what i should do to salvage my project. Since this is a 2 hour project iīve been working on for the last 6 months i would really hate to not be able to finish it. Iīm new to Sony Vegas and really need to be treated accordingly. I wont understand complex technical information regarding the function of interlacing . However a "to-do-list" would be just the thing to steer me right.
I would be extremely thankful for any help. If theres some further information you need please be so kind as to simply ask me for it. Iīm not even entirely sure what information counts as relevant in this case.
