    Default Vegas Movie Studio 9 - wmv render

    Hi Folks,

    I'm trying to render a 28 minute project to wmv format and it crashes my machine every time. Shorter videos (e.g. 2-5 min) render ok. I am running Vista with AMD Phenom x4 processor, 4GB RAM and 500GB drive. The source videos were taken on a JVC verio HDD camera (.MOD files).

    Any help much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Ian.

    P.S. What's the best format for uploading to Viddler? WMV seems to give the best quality compared to compressed AVI or MOV.

    As you can do smaller files, nothing wrong there with the RAM, nor the CPU power. But . . .

    Is that 500gb disc the only drive you have?

    What space is there available/free on the hd?

    164Gb free space. I must admit, I thought I had quite a bit more.

    Well, that is still quite a bit. But it really depends on just how much of that "free" space is being used for the PC to thrash about in. I'm no PC pro, but I'd be considering doing some housekeeping and generally freeing up even MORE space just to see if this was an improvement. I'd do this to kinda confirm a need to remove any Media and place on another drive.

    You may have got to a swap stand-off with your programs, and the need for Vegas to do rendering of larger scaled projects combined with your system working its guts out to keep pace.

    I'll try some housekeeping like you say and see if it helps. I guess I could also try shutting down the network connection and disabling AV etc., just in case there's a conflict.

    Appreciate your responses, thanks.
