Ron Whitaker30fps footage: motion is blurred
by on Apr 26, 2012 at 11:23:25 pm

When taking video of an interview, my main camera is my Panasonic GH2, which I have set to 24fps. Along with that, I also purchased a much cheaper Kodak Playsport, which takes video at 1080p, but only at 30fps. I use this camera on the side to get another angle so that I can cut between the two in the final project for a more visually interesting final render.

The footage that comes from the Kodak, though, is blurred whenever there's movement, like someone moving their hands. I also just took the Kodak to film cars driving by in front of my house, and they appear blurry.

Is this just the way it is, or do I need to set something in Project Properties or Render so that my footage from the Kodak Playsport is cleaner, without blur on movement?

I have a Panasonic Lumix ZS6. Takes wonderful pics for a point and shoot and good 720 video. I had ghosting issues. Turns out the 30p video is actually 30, not 29.97. I used John Rofrano's script and the ghosting was removed. You might want to give it a try.

Thanks.

How do I implement the scripting? Do I need to copy that file somewhere so that Vegas can recognize it?

Copy to:
[dr:]\Program Files\Sony\Vegas Pro ##.#\Script Menu

In Vegas, run Tools, Scripting, Rescan Script Menu Folder
Run the script.

Alternatively, you could open the clip's Properties and change the Playback Rate to 0.999. Do the same for the matching Audio track.

You can also create a folder under My Documents called Vegas Script Menu and place the script in there and Vegas will find it when you scan for it. This is the preferred method on modern OS's like Windows 7 since non-admin users are not allowed to alter the Program Files folders anymore.

Thanks for all answers.

Another question: I'm going to be using the Kodak as a side camera during interviews. My main camera is my GH2.

With the GH2, I'm filming at 24fps. The Kodak is 30fps. Final project render will be 24fps.

So, when I pull all that footage in to start editing, can I still run that script just on the footage I bring in from the Kodak Playsport? What would be the best way to approach that?

[Ron Whitaker] "So, when I pull all that footage in to start editing, can I still run that script just on the footage I bring in from the Kodak Playsport? What would be the best way to approach that?"
No, that script is to adjust 30.0fps to 29.97fps by slowing down the playback rate 0.9 and disabling resample. If you are going from 30.0 to 23.976 you can just disable resample on those events and let Vegas select the frames it wants to use. Otherwise it will blend frames to go from 30.0 to 23.976 which may or may not be desirable depending on how much motion is in the shot. I assume it won't mater for an interview which is mostly static shots.

BTW, VASST Ultimate S Pro (which I wrote) will allow you to make any adjustments you want on any number of events... and a whole lot more. ;-)

I just edited some footage shot on a Kodak Playsport, and I just right clicked on the footage, selected properties, then "Disable resample" for when I rendered to 24 fps.
