Why is Rendered Image Squeezed in Sony Vegas 13?
on Nov 5, 2016 at 6:46:53 pm

Lately when I render a video project in Sony Vegas 13 the image looks squeezed. Not sure why it is suddenly doing this but I'm not sure where to go to change the settings so it isn't squeezed. I normally choose is MPEG-2 then NTSC Widescreen Program. The option "stretch image to fill output video size (do not letterbox)" is also checked. Even when I choose NTSC program it looks squeezed. Thanks for your help.

Hi,

Just a shoot in the dark:
Event pan/crop stretch and maintain aspect options also can do squeeze if used in that way.

Otherwise please give some more (exact) information on
-project properties
-source media properties
-render settings

Best regards

Hi,

That looks fine.
What media do you use in that project? (Media properties?)
Is there some pan/crop applied to it?

Best regards

The video is mp4, 1080 shot on a Panasonic HC x1000. In the editing I had applied some pan/crop to certain clips but this has never affected the render in other projects. They had the same media and settings but they weren't squeezed with the render. Last night I just dragged the edited project file into a new time line in Sony Vegas and tried rendering it that way - and it worked ok. No squeezed image. So - not sure how, but it worked.

If I understood correctly, you just nested the squeezing project into a new project, and then the weird squeezing disappeared?
If that's the case, I suspect you just hit a bug in Vegas, because it should look exactly the same...

Yes exactly. And I even tested it with other clips and no squeezing so I guess there was a glitch with that particular project. Thanks again for helping out!

Hi Dave,

In the past I had a project that was doing odd things. I open the project, selected everything in the project, then Ctrl+C to copy all the tracks and events. Then I started another occurrence of Vegas Pro, then Ctrl+V to paste, then saved it with a different project name and everything worked fine and I had my original editing back.

Maybe that is what you did with your post above.


Best Regards.......George

Thanks George. Dragging the project file into the time line (as opposed to "opening" it) seemed to do the trick. Glitches happen!
