I don't know what settings other Vegas users are using, but the general video guideline would suggest you decide on what your final Ouput will be, then capture, render, et al AT that resolution if possible or slightly better...
What I would try (if I had the setup!) would be a short cap of detail and movement ~ 5 to 10 seconds of each, then output it a couple of ways that are available to see what one looks best in the end...
ALSO, I would try a capture in a higher quality, if possible, from your end output and do the same with that.
I realize that will take a while, but please post back with your findings.
Cheers for the reply, was planning on testing different settings myself but thought of posting here first in case any others have already tested settings before
So far I think for a clip captured in 720p (1280x720) with 59 frames/second, AVCHD 1280x720/60p or Same as Original pre-set is the best. With these settings, the video will be rendered out in .MP4 format and is readable by Sony Vegas. When tried the WindowsMediaVideo 9 preset, I felt there was quality loss with the final render. I'm try to test with custom template but the maximum frame rate available is 30 (missing 59frames/second ) and 1280 x 720 frame size is missing
BTW I'm using the videowave version that came with the installation disc, haven't updated it.
