Hi there - I shot some slow motion footage on my camera with the following spec:

720p @ 50fps.

I have edited this with some footage at 25fps (1080i 25p).

I do like to Render on WMV as opposed to Sony Mp4 as I think the compression is better on WMV, as well as the color reproduction (MP4 seems to be darker). But if this won't help, please suggest best to render.

Primarily these videos will be put onto YouTube / Vimeo.

Q's)

1)
To get this to playback crystal clear smoothness on Sony Vegas 9.0 what should my render / property settings be?


2)
Will seconds per keyframe perhaps help if I 'up' it?

3)
Any suggestions about how to acheive crystal clear slow mo playback would be appreciated.

The following link is to a sample of the video in question:







Thanks.

You should probably Disable Resample on the events that have slow motion so that Vegas doesn't blend any frames. This will give the you cleanest playback/render. Just right-click the event and select Properties and then disable resample.

I have tried that and I couldn't see any difference to be honest. If I shot it at 720p should the properties be progressive or interlaced? And, lastly, Do you think WMV is better than Mp4 in quality John? I found that Mp4 compression showed more artifacting unless the bit rate was too low? Thanks for your time John.

[Anthony Frame] "If I shot it at 720p should the properties be progressive or interlaced?"
The 'p' in 720p stands for progressive.

No I don't. WMV is old technology and MP4 H.264 is the latest technology but if you like the look of WMV better, that all that counts. At high bit-rates it probably doesn't matter. I personally stay away from Windows proprietary formats myself because I want my output to be multi-platform (Mac/PC/mobile) but you should use what your eyes think is best.
