    You would only use that if you bought a new camera that shoots 60p or 50p. Otherwise you would never touch it.

    Setting your project to double PAL will give you beter playback performance. Rendering is different. You should render for the device you are targeting for playback. If, for example, you are making PAL DVD’s then you should render to 25fps because PAL TV’s expect 25fps.

    Blu-ray supports 29.97fps, 25fps, & 23.976fps. That’s it.

    I recieved my first video from a client that had a frame rate of 59.94, and they wanted a few place cut out. I figured I would need to render in the same settings so as not to lose any quality. Unfortunately, I don’t have Double NTSC or Double PAL in the frame rate dropdown for anything. I wonder why that is? I have Sony Vegas Pro 13, but I did get the Edit version. Perhaps that’s why?

    What render codec are you trying to use? Some do not permit double frame rates. Try a Sony AVC Render Template. Then customize. Under frame rate, you should see both double NTSC and double PAL.

    If all you are doing is simply cutting out a bit of the footage, you would probably do better with an editor such as VideoRedo or TMPGEnc’s MPEG Smart Renderer that supports smart-rendering. Vegas does not and will requite a complete re-render.
