Thread: Vegas Pro8 + HD footage

  1. Default Vegas Pro8 + HD footage

    hi all

    I got Vegas Pro8 to edit my AVCHD footage. Over all I am very pleased with the results. My only question is that my footage is HD 1440 x 1080. But why my Vegas preview screen only show 720x 480 why? should it displace 1440 x 480 at the preview screen? what do I have to do to get it show 1440? Any inputs is appreciated.

    PS. When I rendering the footage I then can change the it to 1440/480 and the preview screen will show 1440x480 but I am not sure the result is 1440x480

    My guess is you haveb't set the PROJECT PROPERTIES to 1440 x 1080
    (File | Properties, Video Tab - choose template to suit)

  3. Default

    Thanks for reply. I have tried the file/properties/choose template to 1440x1080 but when I preview the video, the video clip do not match the video ratio. The video screen become smaller. Because my footage is a HD file. Should it automatic shown 1440/1080?

    Right click in your preview screen. Cant remember all the options right now, but I think your problem may be with your selections there... (If it's only the preview you're referring to).

  5. Default

    Problem solved... I decided to play with a few more different template and found the right one. It works great the video play much smoother on the preview screen and awesome HD video.

    I originally tried this template : HDV 1080-24p (1440x1080, 23.976 fps= NO GOOD.

    I try HDV 1080-60i (1440x1080, 29.970 fps. Wow, got the right one.

    I can't believe it I thought I am happy with my previous default template which is NTSC DV (720x480, 29970 fps) and have been rendering video with it.

    The only thing is rendering video @ 1440x1080 take so much time but well worth it.
