    Default Vegas, fast scratch renders, and you - a tip.

    I am editing something with loads of 3d comopositing and tracks and it is soooo slow ro render.

    Speed up scratch renders by rendering your project to mpeg1 VCD.

    Rednering to mpeg1 vcd is much much MUCH faster.

    Yup, VCD (mpeg1) is a great under-used format.

    Is this for just "seeing" and proofing? If so try importing that VEG into a new Vegas instance. Yes the ACTUAL veg. I've got one going at present which is a multi 3 vids in one with the Cartoonr Fx. It took about 30 seconds to wind itself up to 25fps - it's that Nested Proxy file that is doing it. Oh yeah and I've got this flowing in the new Vegas Pro 9 which has the great new "intelligent" Preview option.

    I am fantasising about more cores.
    People tell me the smart money is buying AMDs new fast chip.

    Hi Grazie,

    Can you teach me how to “importing that VEG into a new Vegas instance”? Or where can I find the information in the Help?

    For example, I am working on a project. The final render format is a 720p 16:9 300MB wmv file. It will take over 1-hour to render this project. How do I get a quick proof by using your method?

    I am using Platinum 9.0. The play on the screen of Preview (Auto) is not smooth enough for proofing.

    Hi Mark,

    I did try the mpeg1 VCD before posting my question to Grazie. The problem was I could not set the mpeg1 VCD in 16:9 format.

    Is Grazie’s method faster than mpeg1 VCD?

    Only available in FULL blown Vegas that allows for *.veg import as MEDIA.
