    Default Vegas 6.0 HELP!!!

    I have made a video 43 minutes long. For some reason when I render it the video comes out in 3 clips. Two 18 minute 43 second clips and a 5 minute and 74 second clip. I looped the video and am trying to save it as an avi file. Some one please help... -Shafer

    From a Google search...

    "The limit of 2 gig was present in Win 3.1x and Win 95 as both used
    the FAT-16 file system. Hence the largest file possible was 2GB minus 1 byte.

    That limitation was increased with the advent of FAT-32 and NTFS file systems. IE Win98, 98SE, ME, WinNT, Win2000, WinXP.


    To complicate things just a bit, "Video for Windows" had this same
    limitation. The thinking was that as the OS couldn't address
    anything larger than 2 gig there was no reason for Video for Windows to go
    any higher either."

    And that's your answer... check the file sizes of the two the same - I'll bet they're 2Gb?

    Actually approx. 18+ minutes of DV-AVI represents a file size of 4Gb. I'll lay money that whatever drive you're rendering to is formatted as FAT-32**. Some external drives (particularly mobile ones) are supplied formatted as FAT-32. You should convert it to NTFS. There are two ways of doing this. One way is to clear everything off it and reformat it so it's blank. Alternatively you can convert a drive from FAT-32 to NTFS using the following command line:

    convert [drive_letter]: /fs:ntfs

    Substitute the [drive_letter] for the drive in question on your setup.

    ** EDIT: 4Gb is the biggest file you can have under FAT-32
