I thank everybody greatly for your help. The weird thing is - at least it's weird to me - is that I have been creating music videos for years with Vegas (including the version I now have installed) and have always mixed all kinds of videos - photos, graphics, art, music, voice, sounds, videos in various formats, etc - and have always had great results. Then all of a sudden, every time I imported one of my photos, it automatically became low-resolution - looked fine in the preview window, but resolved all jagged and distorted. I'd go back and open one of the old vegas project files that included the same photos and render and they'd be perfect, try a new project and import the same photo and bang it'd be all distorted. All seems really strange to me and I'm sure I either must have clicked on some setting I shouldn't have or there is some weird bug that came out of nowhere or - I have no idea what might have changed. Again - thank you greatly for sharing your thoughts and suggestions.

@Robert-Butts

What version of VP are you using?

This part is critical "looked fine in the preview window, but resolved all jagged and distorted. I'd go back and open one of the *old vegas project files* that included the same photos and render and they'd be perfect,"

The "old vegas project files" must have a setting that's different from what you're using now by default.

When you start a new project, are you starting from File-New or do you use an existing project as a template?

Hi, Michael - thank you for your response. I am using Vegas 16. Probably I suppose should upgrade though it gets expensive to upgrade every year. Oh well. I mix - sometimes I start with File-New and sometimes just use an existing project.

@michael-harrison … re upgrading … unless its critical to do so now, it may be worthwhile waiting for Vegas Pro 18's release which would likely be in August (3 months from now) if the timing of previous new versions over the last 4 years is anything to go by.

@Dexcon You meant to respond to @Robert-Butts

@Robert-Butts

Have you compared the working-old projects with the non-working projects to see what the differences are?

If you have some projects that work fine, the problem isn't with the software per-se, it's with some setting/fx/event in the broken project.

I agree - I think it's some setting that somehow got by mistake changed, but darned if I can find what the difference might be at all.
