As a newcomer to vegas media movie studio platinum 8.0, I would appreciate advice on how to use anything like the full (2 hr) capacity of a dvd bearing in mind:
1) the software can take anything between 4 and 10 hours to render, prepare & burn a 30 minute movie. I can't bear the thought of a 16 to 40 hour process to prepare a reasonably full DVD
2) the burn software does not allow multiple burns per DVD - which would alleviate the lengthy processing time.
I have a system with XP, 2.4 Gb intel processor, 500 Mb memory & 100 Gb disc
In my earlier video editing environment the software had no DVD burn capability so I used to send the videos in handleable chunks from PC to my video camera and then use the TV/DVD recorder to prepare the DVD. I was hoping the Sony software would cut out the camera link. Any ideas?
