I've been using Sony Vegas 9 Studio HD for about a month now to edit stuff for YouTube. My Render is always .mp4 internet 720p @ 30fps.
But right now, I'm trying to render something that is more complex. I have about 20 files that I've edited into what I want (most from a Flip Ultra HD, at least one from a 1080i format). The problem is, everytime I try to compress to the .mp4 format (or really any format that's HD other than .avi) it crashes.
Some Fatal Exception error pops up just after I start the compression and kills Vegas. I've tried everything to try to work around this, including compressing to a different format (.wmv), trying to render only small chunks at the same time, and deleting files off of my hard drive to make more room. Nothing works.
What is going on here? Is the plugin (cited in most of the fatal exceptions I've seen) not working here? Is there a fix to this that I haven't found yet?
Any help would be appreciated.
