Just realized there's another possible factor...

In Vegas, go to File then click Properties.  Make sure you've got it set to the correct resolution, that full-resolution rendering is set to 'best,' and that deinterlace method is set to "none." 

A quick way to make sure you get the right settings is to open the Properties dialog then click on the folder icon in the top right. Navigate to the actual video files you're editing, and double click on one of them (or click and select "open." Either one works.). Vegas will set the project resolution accordingly. You'll still have to manually set the quality & deinterlace method, though.

(edit - would you look at that... post 2000! Wheeee!)

Nice Info! Much appreciated! The interlace was not set too none, so that could help, also about the larger shot opposed to the the medium to close shots make a A TON of sense thinking about it now, my 2nd location shot was MUCH crisper than the rest, and that was much closer I will plan accordingly, how much are you selling the lens for?

Oh another question in the video settings when editng the frame rate settings set to 29 (NTSC) which If i believe is for television, the 24 frame rate is for film, would that make a significant difference by changing that? Cause I can change the cam settings as well to shot in 24 FPS if Im not mistaken

I've got the lens listed in the buy/sell forum, check there for that info.

You should set the frame rate to whatever you shot it at... Changing it can make a difference. You need to stay with whatever settings you originally shot at. Shooting at 30p will reduce the blur a bit.

I would avoid filming at 24fps if at all possible; for Television or Internet targets (vimeo, youtube etc.) 30fps (29.97 NTSC) is better. However, trying to change frame rate is worse, so in the unusual event that you're feeding in to a 24fps workflow, (e.g. for a traditional movie constrained to be 24fps) then start from a 24fps source rather than trying to convert from 30fps.

Oh ya I know better than that, I meant if shooting in 24 Fps might be better but you answered that :)

Can you remember the shutter speed you recorded at? If the movement is a little jerky it tends to mean that the shutter speed was a little slow. As a basic rule it should be double the frame rate but realistically I've found with fast moving objects the faster the better.

Just a "general knowledge" FYI... If you send a 24 fps spot to a TV station, we're going to forcibly convert it to 29.97 before it airs.  ;D  (I could tell some stories about the video formats I've received to air on tv... sheesh... It's only the second week of February and I've already been sent 2 PAL formatted commercials from different sources. Both the production houses and my station are firmly in the US.  :-\ )

It definitely helps to know your intended distribution channels before you shoot.
