My input files that I am working with are .MTS files (AVCHD). They are interlaced.
These are my project properties:
Template: Custom (1440x1080, 29.970 fps)
Field Order: None (progressive scan)
Pixel aspect ratio: 1.3333 (HDV 1080)
Frame rate: 29.970 (NTSC)
Pixel Format: 8-bit
Full-resolution rendering quality: Good
Motion Blur type: Gaussian
Deinterlace Method: Interpolate Fields/Blend Fields (no difference because they sort of turn out the same still with the horizontal lines)
The film effects I used are film grain effect, fill light, color corrector, color curves, and soft contrast. NOTE: This video was for my film class and it is suppose to have an "old" film feel to it.
Basically, I want my video to look like my preview while I was editing. I also don't want the quality of the video to be degraded. I tried rendering in AVCHD but most of my effects didn't stay and there were still horizontal lines. I also tried rendering in MainConcept AVC, Sony AVC, and WMV but it all turned out degraded and also film effects didn't stay and horizontal lines were still there.
Much help will be appreciated! Thanks!

Setting the "Field Order" to "None" prevents de-interlacing.
"Good" Render Quality is not good. "Best" is preferred.
And turn off "Resampling" in the video properties.

Why do people insist on using in camera effects, it stuffs up the video and can't be undone?
All these effects can be done when editing the video even in a basic video editor, look better than what a camera can do and can be undone if desired effect is not achieved.
Imagine the "Project Settings" as "what you want", and the media as "what you have".
At render, Vegas will decide whether to de-interlace based on the project/media difference.
Does that make sense?
Fer Example: If you have interlaced video on the timeline, and render to progressive, it will de-interlace the media automatically.
If you want to change the look of the grain, you must do so with Gaussian Blur, or some other tool.

If original video is interlaced and there is for deinterlacing none in project settings, then there will be horizontal stripes after rendering, because Vagas does not deinterlace. It takes that value from project properties.
1. Your clip is interlaced then set deinterlace method in project properties in case you export progressive. But that is not optimal, you do not want to simply deinterlace your video, it will not be that smooth in motion. But you are set for film look, ...
2. Export interlaced video. Btw. Vegas deinterlaces in preview window. But then all film effects make less sense then ...

Best bet would be to shoot it progressive with right gear and then to apply some effects if you want.
To work with what you got, shooting interlace footage, you should use longer shutter speeds if possible and to compare export with disabling resample ( in media properties for each clip) and with resample enabled (that is default) , there could be some ghost effects introduced with resample enabled.
Or leave it interlaced and give it those effects (film look), but that is kind of weird - interlaced video with film look.
