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.
