Some time ago I decided to check if there was a way to make good slow-mo without the hassle with avisynth etc (http://eugenia.gnomefiles.org/2009/0...h-slow-motion/) even though I know it would be great to learn that stuff.
Anyway I sat down and exported a 50%slow-mo clip filmed in 50i with my canon hf-100, and I did this in maybe 15-20 different ways - using different combinations of deinterlacing/motion blur types etc.
And this one clip came out JUST AS SMOOTH as I want it to be, no overlaying double-layers when paused etc., just a bit smugded out, and the motion was non-stuttery.
The thing is, I thought it would be easy to back-track to that specific setting (as I did not write down every setting I exported with) but I have not yet found out the same formula.
I'm using sony vegas 9 btw. So the changes I did was:
1. within the clip itself (right-click and properties @ timeline; disable/smart/force resampling, and field order (upper first/none(progressive))).
2. Project settings, changed field orders; Motion blur type and deinterlace method.
3. Rendering settings: Entropy coding: CAVLC or CABAC, and Field order as progressive or Upper field first.
I work in a ntsc 29.970-project but that shouldn't change much in quality eh?
I know that my problem is a mess, but check this and you'll see what I'm eager to achieve.
Just pause and see the difference between the clips - it's obvious but I can't seem to figure it out setting-wise.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
