Fellow vegas users,

I shot footage in Progressive mode 24p advanced with a Panasonix DVX100A.

The question I have is which is the Best "Project properties" to save the footage as, and also which is the Best "render as" settings I should employ on this footage.

I have been trying various settings and am getting some wicked terrible results!

Can some give this poor soul some rational advice?

First, thanks for replying to my post despite this being a weekend. it is greatly apprecited.

I have just one more question, I intend to place the edited contents to dvd for viewing on a regular television. The footage was captured on mini dv tape as you may well know, I am not sure why you would advise to render as AVC.

Shouldn't I render as an NTSC DV instead or something similar?

DVD video is compliant MPEG-2, nothing else.
Render to MPEG-2 DVD Architect video template, and AC3 audio template.
[Edit] 24p is a valid DVD format and there are 24p DVD video templates in Vegas.
There is a wealth of information available by searching the Sony Knowledgebase and these forums.

The free whitepaper titled 24p and Panasonic AG-DVX100 and AJ-SDX900 tells you everything you need to know about working with footage from this camera.
