My workflow is as now follows:
– Vegas project template = PAL DV WS (best quality)
– render out = PAL DV WS DVDA template (mpg)
– Make the DVD in DVDA = 720×576 PAL
I am still seeing motion artifacts in the output when played back on my DVD player. HDV footage looks normal.
I have mixed DV and HDV 1080i footage on the timeline and am using Sony Vegas Pro 8.0c to edit, and Vegas Pro 9b (x64) to render as my VASST Ultimate S4 plugins are misbehaving slightly on V9 (plus I was trying to avoid the Vegas Pro 9a media generator issue)
This is a 4 hour wedding shoot that is in its final edit stages. I have contemplated redoing the capture process by down converting in camera and reimporting to the timeline, but it is not the HDV footage that is causing me grief: It’s the DV WS footage.
The bridal preparations were all in DV WS and I am not experiencing any such issues using the workflow above. Any suggestions? I am at a loss as to what to do.
I had a look at the media properties of the DV footage and it currently set to 1.3333. Could this be the problem? If it is, is there any easy way to globally set the media properties for 1 video track as I have hundreds of cuts!?

Yes it could since PAL DV WS has a PAR of 1.4568

If you have Ultimate S Pro, just select one of the events that you want to change. Then go to the Visual Effects tab and enable Change Event Properties and press Get From Event. Change the Pixel Aspect Ratio to 1.4568 (PAL DV Widescreen), then select all of the events that you want to affect and press Apply. This will change all of those events for you.
If the events are all on one track then right-click the first event and choose Select Events to End to select all of the events on the track.
