    Hi

    I am editing a Christening, shot in HDV 1080/50i using the HDV 1.3333 template using m2t files. I am using the Ultimate S 4.1 plugin to handle the multicam tracks, and have checked to ensure that it is rendering to the project settings. If render out from Vegas 9 Pro to the DVDA PAL WS template, there is a noticeable tearing of vertical lines and any movement in the footage when imported and then previewed in DVDA. It is only noticeable at the best quality setting in the DVDA preview, but that distortion also appears in the final DVD render.

    The only way I been able to avoid this is to render out to an 1080/50i Intermediary in Vegas and then bring that into DVDA as 1 file (although I have read here that DVDA prefers separate elementary streams, but that does not make a difference). I then get the results I am expecting (no tearing), but the Vegas project render can take upwards of 2 hours for a 1 hour project, and then a similar amount of time in DVDA.

    This seems to go against the advice I commonly see in the forum of editing using the HDV 1.333 template and rendering out to a DVDA PAL WS when in Vegas. Am I doing something wrong here in my workflow?

    I agree that this goes against conventional wisdom and you shouldn’t have to do it, but the fact that it works gives us something to go on. What format are you using for the intermediary? What field order does it use? I’m assuming the tearing may be a field order problem so the trick is to figure out why the intermediary works and then try and render an MPEG2 stream that does the same.
