Well, it worked. Thanks for the tip, guys. Smile

Ok, this might be a really dumb question, but once I have it in virtualdub, do I save as lagarith avi and import into Vegas?

As a follow up question...I went ahead and converted to lagarith avi, and the resultant file is 175 gb for a 90 min movie Confusedhock:. That's over twice the size of the lagarith avi that I got following Throw's guide originally. Is this right?

Yes. Take the script into Virtualdub and render a lossless AVI. Make sure that you select fast recompress. This should be your script.

Code:
DirectShowSource("wherever\whatever.grf", fps=23.976, audio=false)
Assumefps(24000,1001)
ConverttoRGB(matrix="Rec709")

RGB files are bigger than YUV files. Your first AVI might have been YUV.

Isn't YUV or RGB dependent on the source? I used the same source to get the smaller file the first time.

Also, what does the fast recompress and the converttoRGB do? I seem to have the same result after that.

No.

The former means that Virtualdub does not process your video, and the latter is a line in the script that converts your file to RGB properly, so that it is ready for editing in Vegas. If you received the same file-size as before, I wouldn't worry about it.

Looking back through my original workflow with Throw's guide, I realized that I resized to 1280x720 using a filter in vdub. I suspect if I do the same here, I'll get much closer to the 85gb file I had originally...

Yes. The file-size does not sound at all unusual to me, Frink. I think everything is fine.

Yep...final size 91.5 GB Smile

Side note - I couldn't do a fast recompress because that disables filters.
