Hi John. I would highly appreciate it if you could help me on my issue.

I am using Sony Vegas Pro 13. Here is a video I recorded so you can see my issue: https://vimeo.com/156729496/07e67f4686

I shot a wedding film. The original footage was shot in Progressive Scan and the timeline matches it (29.970 fps progressive, 1920x1080x12, AVC).

When I rendered my video for BluRay using Upper Field First, there's this one slow motion shot that flickers like a strobe light. I ran some tests and rendered it using none (progressive scan) and no flicker. Now, would it be incorrect to burn a Bluray in none (progressive scan)? I have been using the Sony AVC template.

I also tried to choose "Reduce Interlace Flicker" on just that event and that fixed the issue when rendering using Upper Field First...but that would be an annoying fix because I would have to set all of the clips to this setting.

Also, a side question: What bitrate do you use when burning BluRays? The max for Sony AVC is 21,999,616. Is it necessary to stick to that? Rendering takes forever. Haha.

Hello John,

I see you're very knowledgeable about Sony Vegas Pro 13. I am really stuck and in the middle of a wedding project. I would really appreciate it if you could help me.

The stabilizer effect (the one that comes with Vegas) simply stopped working after a certain point. I make a sub clip and put it under the Media FX, but now after analyzing (rendering), there won't be any change. However, doing this in another project file with only the clip in the timeline, it works, but even if I copy and paste to my wedding project, the effect will disappear. It's super weird and this has never happened to me before. I already tried to reinstall Vegas. Any ideas?
