How do I create an MPEG-2 1080p Template?
on Mar 24, 2018 at 6:09:14 pm

Hello, I'm trying to customize an HDV 1080i template to be 1080p, but everytime I change the aspect ratio which is defaulted to 1440x1080, to 1920, I get an immediate error when trying to render out. Which render template do I select to create an mpeg2 HD 1920x1080 template.
My source files are HDV 1080i video, and other projects have still pic's that are 1920x1080.
Can't Vegas Pro render out to mpeg2 HD 1920x1080 ?

Since your source files are HDV, 1440 - 1080, just open a new project, and when your add your first HDV file to the time line, Vegas asks you if you want your project settings to match your media, click yes. When you go to render, select "Main concept mpeg-2/ HDV 1080i. Then drop down where it says HDV and select mpeg-2, then change the 1440 to 1920, then switch from interlaced to progressive. You can then save this as a render preset by renaming it at the top to something you will remember since it will show up as what ever you name it when you go to render another project.
BTW The reason HDV 1440 - 1080 has an aspect ratio of 16/9 is because HDV videos pixel aspect ratio is not square, 1 by1 like normal HD is. They are 1.333 by 1. Multiply 1440 by 1.333 and it equals 1920 almost exactly.

Hi Dan, thanks for the reply.
I tried your suggestion, but as soon as I change to 1920, I keep getting the immediate error when I start to render. The only success is when I keep it at 1440.
I'm going to try it on another computer to see if it works.

thanks again,
robert

I got the template to work by also changing the 'high 1440' box, to just ' high '.

thanks again, robert

Oh yea, I forgot about that box. Glad you have it working. I see you have Sony HVR-A1U. I still have one too but died while eating a tape once. Cost a few hundred bucks to get it repaired. I'm done with tapes since I use the component and left + right audio outs to a Blackmagic Intensity Shuttle USB 3 capture device. This allows me to bypass the .m2t compression and capture straight from the imager. With a solid state drive, i can capture 1920 - 1080 uncompressed 10 bit 444 color space .avi. large files but better quality video. I only use it in my studio when I need to use good phantom powered mics since it has the dual XLR shoe adapter. Happy editing! Danny
