Okay... I am trying to make my first ever movie with Sony Vegas/Architect. I completed my video/audio in Vegas and rendered it as an .mpg/.ac3, respectively. So I go into Architect and try to pull up my rendered project and it says the file names are invalid <insert puzzled look here>.
I know I am doing something wrong, just can't figure out what. Here is the bizarre thing. The files are showing as filename.mpg.sfl, filenameac3.sfk and filename.ac3.sfl. What the heck is that all about? Also there is a filename.dar file and a filename.vf file as well. I would suppose the .vf file is the video file... makes sense; but the .dar file has got me stumped. I have no idea how to make my video in Architect. No idea. None. At all.
So here is my breakdown:
Now, the rendering took nearly an hour to do, so I know that there has got to be a bigger file out there somewhere, right? I can't find it though.
Do I have to use Architect? I am not going to put any menus on the movie, I just want the movie on multiple DVDs.
Sorry for the "basic" question, I am a greenhorn at this stuff. I appreciate any, and all help. Thanks in advance.
