In order to achieve a slowmotion effect i decrease the velocity of a clip within it's properties. unfortunately it seems to be a jittery effect much of the time. does anyone know how i can achieve a smoother slowmotion effect.
I've noticed that resampling in Vegas isn't perfect (duh), and you still get some jitters. This is because it's resampling doesn't add figure out new frames to fill in for slow motion, it fades the frames together. So it doesn't make an inbetween frame, it fades them. good in most cases, but sucks with computer graphics (which is what i tested it one)
We get slo mo jitter even with the Avid Media Composer. My solution (though impractical for most, including myself off the job) is to use a BetaSX deck. Only software solution I have had success with is to blur the image a little.
Vegas 4 ?
Did you right-click event on the timeline, then Switches, then Force Resample (or Resample if you run VV3) in the first time ?
I mean, *this* Resample before trying the Video Bus Track (Supersampling)?
Adding Motion Blur in VideoBusTrack might help a little if you tried all the above. But I guess nothing's perfect for all situations...
Maybe putting event on timeline, then a copy on track 2 and offset it (let's say, 15 frames) a little then pulling down opacity of track 1 down 'til you get the two tracks in sight "equally". Cut and adjust to contain only the action that's going to be slo-mowed.
Then render these tracks.
Then try resampling the obtained new track?
Well, maybe it's going to be a mess after all... I never tried.
