Thread: Vegas 8 not rendering project

  1. #1

    Default Vegas 8 not rendering project

    I have cut together a 7 minute short. But it doesn't want to render. When trying to render it just stays at 0% and the "time left" keeps going up. I've tried rendering it piece by piece, with no success. An earlier version of the same project DOES render though. The project consists mostly of MOV footage from the Canon 5D Mark II, and a couple of scenes from the HV30. When watching the movie in preview it plays fine. Please help.

    it is not uncommon for a render to appear to do nothing for many minutes befor frames start to appear in the preview screen.

    How long have you waited ?

    Mixing stills camera movs with hv30 video will result in slow performance cos of different codecs.

    Ok, I've waited about 20 minutes or so and still at 0%. I'm beginning to think that something is corrupted.

    Hmm - that is a long time.

    Try removing first all of one media type and trying again - see if one source file may be corrupt.

    Is the processor doing much during the pause ? Check in task manager.

    The cpu is doing practically nothing during the render. I tried deleting all clips except first one, didn't work. Tried deleting only first clip.. Didn't work either. I'm thinking I have to recut the whole thing. But I will convert all MOV files to a format which works better in Vegas first, it's slow as hell when working with files from the 5D markII.

    Vexing - cant help much more - but as you say the stills camera files will be awful to edit - thay just are not the tool for the job.

    How many stills? How big, meaning KBs is EACH still? Look in the Project Media Window and report back to us as to how big each file is? How many of these stills have you?
