I have just finished creating a music video, made up of videos taken from two XVID sources (they are same aspect ratio & everything) ... it plays fine within Vegas but won't render :( .. i just get a black screen
after doing some reading, i have found that it is most likely to do with the fact it's xvid sources AND i have sped them up..
to test the xvid sources i imported them again in a new project & they rendered fine...so that leads me to believe that it is the speeding up that causing the error
now i have spent a few hours on this & im afraid that if i have to convert the source videos & then remake the project, i will loose motivation & just wont do it...it was painful enough in the first place!
Option 1) If i upgrade to Vegas 9 can i open the .veg file in it & then render, in the hopes that the xvid/timeshift bug (or whatever we want to call it) has been fixed ?
Option 2) Can i convert the xvid (.avi) files to another format, say uncompressed .avi file & trick Vegas when i open the .veg by replacing the xvid in the original folders with the uncompressed .avi files with the exact same filename? so when it tries to retrieve the xvid files it will infact find the uncompressed .avi files?
has anyone else had this problem & actually have fix or a better option for me?
any help or advice would be greatly appreciated...i hope to share the video once i can fix this issues!
