What do your system specs look like? Does it do all video this way? or just .MP4 ? – Kelbizzle Feb 3 '10 at 1:51
Just .MP4 for some reason. – Chris Tarazi Feb 3 '10 at 23:00

Well, I haven't seen it as bad as this.

If you have good output on other formats, I would check the export settings for .MP4 and make sure that you have the bitrate set high.

If all else fails, export to a good format and use Handbrake to transcode to MP4.

It seems that the .MP4 encoder in Vegas is broken, but I found another .MP4 encoder in Vegas called "Sony AVC" which allows u to encode to .MP4 and it works flawlessly. Also increasing the bitrate did help but not enough to reach perfect video. – Chris Tarazi Feb 3 '10 at 0:45

I'm using Vegas 9 with K-Lite codec pack on Windows 7 x86 and have no such troubles. Make sure to select MP4 during setup when prompted which components you wish to install.
