    Default Very bright photos in sony vegas 9

    Hello,

    i have a problem with imported photos in sony vegas 9.

    The video clips (avchd) and photos (3600x2700 ia setting) were mde with panasonic tz7

    The template is HDV 720-25p

    Rendering with sony mp4 and hd 16:9 for internet uploads


    The problem is that the imported photos look very bright and a bit blurry. I tried to manually lover the brightness, but that's not it. They are full of light.

    Any solution for this?

    Thanks in advance

    Interesting ... I saw video from one of these demoed a couple of weeks back. The format is Panasonic proprietary format called "AVCHD lite" and is recorded at 30fps. The guy could only transfer the film using "pro" gear (not the stuff most of us have acces sto) via USB or, if he used the .MOV files straight from the SC card, had to either use some very fancy transcoding software or simply drop every 6th frame. How do you do it and how does your film look???

    Aside from that, as far as your problem goes, try downsizing the photos in Photoshop or similar. I know Vegas was never happy with "higher" resolution photos.

    Yes, that's the format panasonic tz7 uses, but pal is 25fps. Sony vegas handles this format without problems. It's under sony mp4, and after rendering it looks the same as the original.

    I don't think it's the res. because i have a couple photos there with about hal of that resloution, and they also look brighter, and a couple 640x480, they look the brightest, so i't not it.

    I will go with it like it is now. I finnished the project, just need to find some music for it.

    Thanks

    are they bright after rendering?

    is there a filter on the preview window? is the preview on the lowest setting?

    Yep, after and before rendering. The preview is on best.

    I'm over it. Spent a couple days trying to fix it. Now cut my loses and moving on It's not drastic, but it would be nice if the photos were as i shot them. I just don't see a reason why a newly installed program, on which i only changed the template to fit my camera specs (hdv 720-25p) would change the settings of the photos. It makes no sense at all.
