Thread: Head spinng how to match these clip and what settings to render.

    Default Head spinng how to match these clip and what settings to render.

    Ok so Im going to try and explain this as best I can. Sorry if I dont know the correct terminology. I have googled this problem and cant seem to get my head around any of the answers or even if im looking in the right places, so here goes.

    Im using sony vegas pro 12 & DVD Architect.
    I have two clips of a school play from to differnt camers.

    First camera Sony HXR MC 2000E
    Second Camera Sony NEX EA50E

    The settings in the cameras both differ (school boy error)
    Here are the project properties that sony vegas matches each clip to if I drop each clip into a new instance of vegas.

    Template: HD 1080-50i
    FieldOrder: Upper Field First
    Frame Rate: 25.00 (PAL)
    DeInterlace: Blend Fields

    Template: Custom 1920x1080, 25fps
    Field Order None (Progressive Scan)
    Frame Rate: 25.00 PAL
    DeInterlace: Blend Fields

    Now the problem I have is how to match these two clips. They look fine in the vegas preview window, but when I come to render them for DVD (ive tried nearly all the render settings) the clips from the HXR are very poor. I have tried to render the HXR clip on its own but I cant get a decnt picture , there are lines around moving objects and on some settings every thing looks distorted.

    My question is what project settings should I use and what render settings should I use?

    Is there a way to convert one or the other? (or are they just differnt)

    I was told that vegas should do it on its own and to just set the project settings how I want them, but this dosnt seem to work.

    Please answer in words of one sillible im a very confused newbie.

    Kind regards

    OK here is one easy thing you could try:

    [1] Bring your first clip into Vegas and immediately export it as a DV PAL AVI movie (not sure of the precise Vegas setting for this because I use PPRO, but you should end up with a new file ending in ".avi").
    [2] Do the same with your second clip.
    [3] Now bring tboth new clips into Vegas and create your movie, then create your DVD
    [4] Thank me later

    I would set the project properties to match the HXR footage ie 1080-50i. Then when you have finished editing. You should be able to render the footage out to match the needed DVD ie PAL for UK or NTSC for USA.

    If Vegas makes a mess of this, which it shouldn't but shit happens sometimes, then put the HXR footage on the time line and render it out as a 1080p (progressive) using one of the .avi templates. As you will be ending up with SD on your DVD I wouldn't worry too much about image quality loss but keeping it at 1080p will be better at this stage.

    You should end up with two lots of 1080-25p footage.
