It's definitely something you are doing wrong. I canedit and re-encode my1920x1080 videos with no problem or error message. Let me download the trial here to my work PC and post the exact steps. Beback in a few.

OK Steph, I did some checking. You're right that the Movie Studio version doesn't seem to allow anything over 1440 but the Pro version *does* allow 1920x1080. It's strange that the Movie Studio version won't import 1920 but yet it will render as 1920x1080 - the option is available and allowed. In the Vegas Pro 8 1920x1080 is fully supported everywhere. Are you sure you downloaded the the Pro 8 trial version?:

I know it costs a lot more than you want to spend, and I don't really have any other suggestions. I've tried Ulead's Video Studio 11.5 Plus and it worked with 1920x1080 butit had plenty of problems re-rendering the videos so I gave up on it. Nero 8 also handles 1920x1080 and does some basic editing but I'm not so keen on it either. Vegas Pro 8 was the only software I found that, to me, works flawlessly with all my footage.

Create a new thread and ask what everyone is using. Maybe you can find some other less expensive options.

Hello Rev2010,

I have done my homework.Interesting findings as I am now running all three versions of Sony Vegas Movie Studio 8.0.

-Low Cost 34.95 eur
-Platinum 59.95 eur
-Pro 526.95 eur

Remembering and thanking myhd1000 who has provided the ideal HD1000 720p30fps genuine footage :

Let us evaluate now a few viable16:9 schemes usingvarious versions of Sony Vegas Movie Studio 8.0.


1. getting a16:9 full screenplayable video using Sony Vegas Movie Studio 8.0

All what is needed is to go into Sony Vegas Movie Studio 8.0 : File Menu / Properties and make sure there is a 16:9 ratio in the image size setting.I have not played with pixel proportion asI left pixel proportion equal to 1:1.

Here are the various 16:9 possibilities, depending on the version you are running.

- Low Cost : 568x320 for standard definition in 16:9 - saved using a WMV9 format at 6 Mbit/s - what you get is something not exciting, it looks like what you get from an old 1/6 inch 470K pixels mono-CCD SD camcorder, with noticeable interline artifacts and of course a deceptiveresolution. The only advantage here is that we are 16:9 and not-interlaced so less fuzz. I suppose that the newest1/6 inch 700K pixels mono-CCD SD camcorders (aka Canon MD235), advertized as 16:9, areproducingsomething close to this.Not to be used in our case, as with a native 720p image as source, we are destoying all finevisual details.

- Low Cost : 800x448 for improved definition in 16:9 (this is the limit of the less expensive Sony Vegas version as it cannot go above 800 pixels in width or600 pixels in height) - saved using a WMV9 format at 9 Mbit/s -what you get is somethingconvincing because of 16:9,not-interlaced so less fuzz, anddecent resolution. Comparable to what the best3-CCD 1/6 inch SD DV camcorders weredelivering about 4 years ago (aka Panasonic GS300, GS320, and the newest GS330), but nowin 16:9.Weget agood surprise here.

- Platinum : 1280x720 forHD 720p- saved using a WMV9 format at 12 Mbit/s -and we are still okay when played on a oldPentium 4 processor at 2.8 GHz. Flawless resultvirtually undistinguishable from the genuine 720p footage.

- Platinum : 1280x720 for real HD 720p- saved using a WMV9 format at Variable Bit Rate with quality parameter set at 93%. Leading to13 Mbit/s average for this movie -and we are still okay when played on a oldPentium 4 processor at 2.8 GHz. Flawless resultvirtually undistinguishable from the genuine 720p footage.

- Pro : 1280x720 forHD 720p - saved using a MP4 format with VBR at 9 Mbit/s average with max peaks allowed18 Mbit/s. Leading to 15 Mbit/s average for this movie- but this encoding scheme is toodifficult for an old Pentium 4 processor at 2.8 GHz. I get hiccups so I can't say if this is better than the 720p WMV9 VBR set at Q=93%.

- Pro : 1920x1080 also possible. Have not tried.

Problem solved, thus.


2. gettingaccurate 16:9 text panelsusingSony Vegas Movie Studio 8.0

- Low Cost : for a 568x320 project thetext panels sould be628x320
- Low Cost : for a 800x448 project thetext panels sould be880x448
- Platinum and Pro : for a 1280x720 project thetext panels sould be1408x720

Problem solved, thus.
