Trying to finish up the Blu-ray for my Incredible Hulk edit. Rendering with the following settings:
BUT... I get this. Blended frames. The original frame rate for the video was 23.976, but I'm getting the same problem on both the DVD and the BD. Doesn't show up in the source file though. I honestly have no idea what to do, I'm probably just missing something really big... any suggestions?

Let me know how it works, as I've also had a problem with this.
Thanks nsp, I'll give it a try
Quickcut, besides your blending issue, a few settings are 'off' in terms of Blu-ray video:
- You're using 1440x1080p (1.33 pixel aspect ratio) instead of the Blu-ray Standard 1920x1080p (1.00 pixel aspect ratio). Perhaps this resolution conversion is part of the problem. *Edit: Anytime the render settings do not match the project settings, Vegas will attempt to resample the image, possibly causing ghosting in motion unless resampling is disabled.
- One pass, low constant bitrate, MPEG2 encoding is not very good quality-wise (practically Superbit DVD). For true 'Blu' Quality, a multi-pass, AVC, Variable Bitrate (determined by a bitrate calculator: http://dvd-hq.info/bitrate_calculator.php) is best.
I'd also advise against ever using Sony Vegas' built-in encoders, as they aren't very good and can cause colorspace problems (film looks darker than your video preview).
I'd recommend rendering the video losslessly (Lagarith or HuffYUV) out of Sony Vegas and following Step #7 of Geminigod's guide (http://www.fanedit.org/forums/showth...nversion-Guide) for encoding.

Just started rendering as a lossless AVI and it appears the resulting file is going to be about 400 gb which settings should I be using?
When selecting the AVI format, there's a drop-down box in custom settings with "uncompessed" as the default. If you have HuffYUV installed, it should be an option. Instead of 400-500GB for a two and a half hour movie, it should be closer to 200-300GB for 1080p and 30-40 GB at 480p.

only got about 110 gigs left on my hard drive.

Sorry I can't be of much help, Quickcut.

Ouch. I do have a 1TB external hard drive that I could try to clear up some space on.
