Smart render in Vegas for Panasonic H-280 hard disk camcorder

I spent few evenings figuring out why vegas always recompresses MPEG2 video from my camcorder, instead of using Smart Render. First, both project and encoder must be set to video size 704×576 pixels, with upper field first interlace (note, that changing encoder template is only possible with Vegas Pro). And the magic setting that will allow smart render is to set Maximum Bitrate for encoder to exactly 9542800 bits/s.

Hello world!

3AM in the morning, sitting in a server room in the middle of SBS 2003 recovery. What a perfect time to start a blog! This server was failing on me since last weekend, malfunctioning in a different way each day. I learned much things during those nights, so I’ll put it here. And if I persist, I may even post something here tommorrow :)
