I open them up in Virtualdub Mod and use it, to convert my source... what compression is your source? codec/container?

if it's compatible in Vegas you can open the file in the trimmer, select a loop region and right click inside the loop region and choose "create subclip" and that will make several subclips in your project.

This is just to confirm but, is there anyway to save the subclips created in vegas?

If there isn't are there any clip creating programs so I don't have to convert the entire episode ?

1. you can save your project and the subclips will be saved in your project but other than that, not really... however if you want to use them in a new project use "save project as" instead of "save project" so you can create a new project file with all the same information.

2.open the video file in virtualdub mod

use those to mark the beginning and the end of the "clips" you want

Ok, I have tried every single method of ripping DVDs and preparing them for use in Vegas and not a single one has worked. I've used Huffyuv, Lagarith, and uncompressed AVI, none of them worked. Vegas makes all of them terribly jittery, plays the wrong parts of the episode, and does various other annoying things. So, I need help. *dies*. VOBs also have done the same thing.

Any ideas for getting my DVD footage to work?

Thanks ^_^

That's the guide in case you havn't read it. You're not supposed to edit .vobs directly in vegas.

How to explain jittery... like, the clips go crazy and start flashing different clips every few frames. DX

And thank you. Yeah, I've looked at that guide. My main prblem at the moment is I can't get AVISynth files to work in VirtualDub. I have checked them for errors many times and there weren't any. And I did know you shouldn't use VOBs in Vegas, but I thought I'd give it a try anyway. ^_^

are you using a funimation DVD? cause what you are explaining sounds like camera angles, and you might need to re-rip your dvd, in IFO mode this time

Hey, I have a very very annoying problem with Vegas.
I edited a lot with adobe première pro 1.5 and one of the things I used a lot was the function to slow down your footage to make it fit into your time line between one clip and the other.
In vegas however.. with envelopes it doesn't work.
The length of the clip remains the same and some frames are lost.
I read on several tutorials, and on the official tutorial as well that you had to use the resampling tool when you finally render your video.. it just seems very unpractical and I can't get my footage to become how i really want it...
its a frustrating aspect of Vegas =,(
Unless some ppl know ways around it and like to share it..
thank you in advance^^

for all of these methods you need to DISABLE the re-sample on clips you change the speed of.

There are several ways to change the speed of a clip

1. size the clip to where you want then hold down the "ctrl" key and size the clip to how long you want it to be, this will keep your clip how you want it, but change the speed of playback.

2. right click on the clip and choose envelopes and choose Velocity and a green band will appear on the clip. (with this method I find it best to put your line where you want the clip to end, and watch the preview screen until you see where you want the clip to stop at)

3. right click on the clip and choose properties and change the playback rate - probably the most difficult way to change the speed of a clip.

.... AND SHE COMES BACK AFTER TWO YEARS.

Yes, I know the web version of the tutorial is down -- that's because home girl didn't pay her hosting bill for two months and the site got wiped out ... on top of that her HD went KAPLOW and she lost the original HTML files.

I will probably redo the tutorial and post it up again and stuff.

Maybe update it, I dunno. I honestly don't think there has been any SIGNIFICANT changes in Vegas from the Tutorial 2 yrs ago and now.

Ok so Vegas has been updated to 9.0 now, I was wondering whats a good alternated way to use the "velocity" function that they took out?

Also how to know to render it to a certain MB in .mpg format while still keeping it's quality?
