I am still having problems with shimmering after rendering with Vegas 8.
Yesterday as an experiment I imported some old music video footage into MPEG Video Wizard, the ripped .vob files I then rendered (without any editing whatsoever).
The output files as always were PAL 720 x 576 mpeg 2.
The files I then burnt to DVD using the ever reliable Ulead Workshop 2.
There was no re-rendering and the DVD was produced in a matter of minutes with perfect results.
Today the same experiment using Vegas 8 Pro, I imported a music video (using Vegas to 'rip' from the DVD).
I did no editing whatsoever and I rendered the file into PAL 720 x 576 mpeg 2.
I burnt the video file (again using Ulead Workshop 2), the result was the video shimmering.
I did a full computer re-installation before trying the experiment using Vegas because I thought some other software may be in conflict however that is not the case.
I also smelt a rat when Vegas was rendering I thought the 'No need to render' prompt would appear in the preview window, but it didn't.
I am aware of interlacing and progressive scan in video footage and the problem is (probably) something to do with this.
How would I know if the imported video when interlaced is 'upper field first' or 'bottom field first' anyway surely by default Vegas would import the file in it's correct format.
It's apparent that I have got a setting wrong somewhere in Vegas, could someone advise me which setting needs looking at.
Clicking on the screen shots below will show my setting.
