by Jerry Waters 11 years ago
I took up motorcycles this past year (went through 4 to settle on a Piaggio MP3 500) and am about to do several trips. I'd like to do some shots from the bike but am not sure how best to mount it. I h

Thanks, Douglas, but I'm not planning on the NAB this year. I have a friend going. Maybe I'll ask him to attend. I'd like to hear the best ways to dampen. JerryW

by Rick Wise 11 years ago
My narrator has a tendency to pop his "p"s. Is there any audio filter that can reduce that without distorting the rest of the narration Rick Wise director of photography Oakland, CA www.RickWiseDP.com

render at 3 frames per second?
by Mary Waitrovich 11 years ago
How do you set custom frame rates for rendering in Vegas. I see where in the render and project settings you can choose 12 fps, but I want to render an avi clip with 3 fps so it looks like a slide sho
Re: render at 3 frames per second?
by Jerry Waters 11 years ago
Very true. Render the sequence and then pull #1,8,16,24, etc. This might be best because if a frame is smeared or jagged you could pull another good one near it. Pull only the best stills. Drop all th

I'm trying to redo a project, importing CineForm 1080p files, 23.976, rendered out in Vegas. Previously, I imported files like these with no problem. Now the files come in but without the audio. I tri

The properties of the clip in PP show that the audio is there. It just does not move to the preview window or timeline. These same clips have always worked before. There seems to be some problem with

After sleeping on this it dawns that I don't know anyone who presents HD in avi. It is always some compressed format. The only thing that can do it, to my knowledge, would be the Cineform thing in PP.

How do you render text without jaggies?
