Well the time has come to upgrade my ageing premier pro 1.5 editing software. Ihave been reviewing a couple of options in trial version form and I'm pretty much decided on Sony's cut down home studio vegas version. I just cant justify the cost of full blown pro products anymore. Anyway I captured some HDV footage from my old Sony HC-1 via the software then converted it to 1080p using the SONY 1080p YUV codec (is that right, not fully sure of the name, writing from memory here)

When I came to import to visionlab I found there was no 1080p option only 720p and HDV 1080i. Now it's probably that I'm missing something but I didn't see any full HD 1080p option and when I tried to import the footage Visionlab hung. I tried converting the footage to 720p and it worked in Visionlab. So am I doing something wrong or does visionlab not support full HD in it's present guise?

thanks

1080p works fine in VisionLab. You can set up the project manually, you don't need to use the templates that are provided.

The software hanging is likely to be due to the codec rather than the resolution. Try exporting to a different codec (try the Quicktime Animation codec, for example), to see if that makes a difference.

yeah I thought I must be missing something somewhere. I had an idea it was the codec causing the hang. I was more interested in being able to push it out to 1080p. That being the case then I guess I will try again tonight then put in my order for the sony software. Thanks for the as always fast and useful response.
