Sorry, I know this is a really, really, really often asked question, but I can't seem to find an answer that pertains to my circumstance (or at least, I don't understand if an answer pertains to my circumstance).
The footage I'm working with was shot on a European JVC Everio that is a few years old now.
I've imported MOD files into Vegas.
I *think* Vegas changed the project properties to match the footage. It has chosen:
· PAL standard / IMX (720x576, 25fps)
· upper field first
· PAL DV aspect ratio
· deinterlance = blend
In respect to the camera, those settings make sense.
In the preview at full quality, there is no 'comb edge' - the quality seems ok.
But I'm rendering as 'MainConcept AVC/AAC (.mp4)' using the default template. The rendering, when played in VLC on the PC monitor, has a comb-like effect on all the edges, which I assume is 'interlacing'.
Is deinterlacing being applied to the render, or do I need to do something else in addition to the project settings? For instance, each clip has a 'reduce interlace flicker' option in its properties that is unchecked. Do I need to tick this box? If so, is there an easy way of doing it to all clips at once?
