I'm new here, so I do apologize in advance if I have posted in the wrong forum. I am having issues with my Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD 9.0. I've had the program for about a year now and haven't had very many issues with rendering until I had reformatted my computer. I have installed all correct codec, Divx, etc; I removed a stick of 2G RAM out of my computer, because it was faulty and causing BS's. Anyway - After the reformat, I've had nothing but issues with rendering into HD quality.
Here is an example of what I've done before:
The Beauty Of WoW Part I - YouTube
WoW Machinima Tool Effects Test - YouTube
I have attached the files for what I'm currently getting, as well as my render and project properties settings. It almost looks as if I've added too much contrast, but I certainly haven't. This is raw footage without any video FX. All I added was the blurred border, which I assume that shouldn't cause any issues with the actually quality of the video.
These are my computer specs, as I'm sure they would be useful:
AMD Phenom 9150e Quad Core 1.80GHz
2.00 GB RAM
64 - Bit OS
Nvidia 9800 GT video card
At this point, I've tried everything I can do. I've used my previous settings that I had before I reformatted my computer and I still get the same quality. I have bought FRAPS over a year ago and the quality of the recorded footage has never been bad. I record properly in 29.97FPS. I did notice that when I installed it after refomatting, the files were being converted to AVI. But previously they were WMV format. I know that taking AVI files and then rendering them into WMV format cause really cause the quality to become bad. But I've tried everything to compress and convert.. and I have found no solution. If anyone knows how I can fix this problem, that would be great. I'm currently swamped with projects that are way over due and I cannot work like this.
Thanks in advance.
