Thread: Newbie rendering question

  1. #1

    Default Newbie rendering question

    Hi folks

    A simple one really, but hope you can help. I've just put a movie together in Vegas 7.0 and want to put it on DVD. The video files I used to make the movie were all taken on my Handycam and are in MPEG2 format.

    All I need to know is, when finally rendering, which format should I choose if I'm simply making a DVD of the movie?

    ANY advice would be hugely appreciated

    Thanks

    DVD uses MPEG2 as its format so encode as MPEG2

    If its a long Movie use MPEG with no audio and then use AC3 for the audio.

    use the batch render script supplied with V7 it will do the the two separate renders (or any others) automatically for you

    I think under the tools menu there is the menu for Scripts, then look for the batch render one.

    I box opens up in there you can select the file path. You can also select the different formats you want you project to be rendered in, an MPEG, AC3, WMV, QT MP3, they then render on after the other.
    You have option to render the whole project selected are or regions ( these are made by highlighting an area in the project and pressing R) this then allows only parts of the time line to be rendered out. Hand for say a pop video, you pt regions on the areas were the songs are and can then render the out as MP3's

    "Batch Render" script shows in Vegas 6 AND Vegas 7.

    As Cheema says: Tools > Scripting (3rd from bottom of "Tools Menu") > "Batch Render"

    Now, if this is NOT showing them you may need to rescan your script folder. If this works then good. If it does show then maybe either your installation was faulty OR your scripts are in a different folder to the folder that Vegas believes they should be.

    To rescan go : Tools > Scripting > "Rescan Script Folder"

    As I said, it is rather odd that Vegas hasn't picked this up on install?

    Grazie
