I have found a weird issue in Vegas 7 with the rendering templates. When I was using Vegas 5 I would create the project using the DV PAL Widescreen Template and then render to MPEG2 and use the drop down and select the DVD PAL Widescreen setting.
Vegas 7 has the project template for PAL Widescreen but when you get to render there is no DVD PAL Widescreen setting only a Architect Widescreen preset which is video stream only!!
Ok, so I decided to just use the DVD PAL setting and under "Custom" changed the aspect from 4:3 to 16:9
The end result was a 16:9 MPEG2 clip BUT the footage seems like it didn't interlace correctly...on the TV whenever there is motion you get strange scan lines on the movement. When there is no motion it look fine!!
Anyone got any idea why Sony has dropped the DVD PAL Widescreen render preset and why the video appears almost non or incorrectly interlaced?????
The same clip rendered in Vegas 5 is perfect!!! BTW: I'm compiling the DVD VOB files using DVDLab in both cases so the problem seems to be in the render settings of Vegas 7
