I have a question about frame ratesthat one of you wizards will know the answer to I guess. I am using Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 8.0c build 136
If I preview a clip in auto preview from the explorer the readout under the display always shows a steady figure, if I now drag the same clip to the timeline and play it there the display always shows a lower varying frame rate. There are no transitions or adjustments made to the clip, the Composite level is at 100%, is this effect because the clip preview from explorer is not actually displaying a frame rate at all ?
My computer is an Intel Dual core quad 2.4G hz with 4 Gb of RAm. My understanding is that the Video is controlled by the CPU and that a fancy Graphics card is not necessary for good video performance.
I am using 2 TFT displays with Preview only on the 2nd display, the preview window is stretched to fill most of the 2nd display. Could this be the reason that the frame rate is varying, I have tried all the different preview settings from Draft to Best and with all the different options for each setting but they appear to make little difference to the frame rate. Can anyone enlighten me on this subject please without getting too technical.
