OK, I'm just learning how to edit HD video, so naturally I tried to create an "extended version" of Star Wars.
I ripped both the movie BluRay and the bonus BluRay, and taken the correct m2ts files. So after a few "tweaks" all my sources were m2ts files with 23.976fps video encoded as AVC, and one 5.1 ac3 track (the movie had of course DTS but I converted it to ac3 before putting it to Vegas).
I have done carefully all edits which I wanted and now I want to render the final movie. Since all my input files had 23,976fps and 5.1 ac3 audio, I of course want to render the video as a 23.976fps (I don't care about the codec/container right now) and 5.1 ac3 audio. How should I do this ?
I am using Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.0.
My first attempt was an "m2t" - I thought it's the same as m2ts but definitely isn't :-) The file was encoded with the MPG codec (I don't really care), the framerate was correct (23.976 progressive), BUT - the audio was only MP2 stereo :-(
After changing the settings I was able to create a m2ts file, which had the video encoded in AVC, and the audio was correctly encoded as a 5.1 AC3, BUT the video is encoded as 29.97fps and I honestly can't watch it, the movement is completely unnatural (I guess because of the creation of unnecessary frames)
Any help ? I really want for the start just a video with 23.976 fps and 5.1 AC3 audio. Or what am I doing wrong ?
