I need help to learn how to properly render files in Vegas Pro 8. I am using AVCHD files imported from a Canon HF100. I put together a movie that is 1.5 minutes long with several events and crossfades and one titler and one audio track. So far the only format I have had any success with is .wmv at the lowest settings (28.8kbps template). Anything other than that and Vegas Pro crashes.
I really need some way to learn the best techniques for importing and rendering files as eventually I'd like to watch these in HD on a blu ray player or apple tv or just on my computer. What is the best way to learn about this? I am thinking about going with the VASST training dvds. Do they cover this?
My computer is a core i7, 6gb RAM, with Vista 64. I have vegas pro 8.0c. I have not installed any scripts, codecs or anything else on Vegas Pro other than what it comes with out of the box. I'm probably too noob to be using such high end software but I figure you got to learn it some day. Thanks fof the help.
