Re: [Sony Vegas Pro 13 ] Video quality degrades upon import?
by Steve Rhoden in the Sony Vegas Forum
I assume you captured this via a game recording device? If so, these game capture devices don't capture video content that is edit friendly at all, And will pose the same issue you are now having with any NLE you use. Steve Rhoden (Cow Leader) Film Maker & VFX Artist....

Re: Mike Matzdorf beats traditional audio tracks to death with an iron pipe.
by Bill Davis in the Apple FCPX or Not: The Debate Forum
For whatever reason, Oliver, the recording format the Hyperdeck uses to doesn't seem to allow this. Even with "ignore silent tracks" checked, the files STILL showed up in X as 16 discrete tracks. I suspect that because X prioritizes letting the editor get to work fast, it simply pulls in...
