Thread: Rendering with vegas 9

  1. Default Rendering with vegas 9

    Hi everyone. I have recently completed a project on Sony Vegas 9 Pro editon. The project is 45 minutes long, 25,000 F/r PAL. SAMPLE RATE 44,100 HZ, 16 bit depth,.

    I am rendering to an external hardrive as a WMV. file.

    The problem i have is that when I come to render the project, the program crashes on me, I could get to arround 70/80 percent (which takes the best part of 3 hours) and it will just crash and I'm back to square 1, it can crash at any point but is garenteed to crash can anyone help me?

    Thanks. mark

    Looks good to me? Can you render to the PC internal hard drive?

    1] I'd like to know just what the format of the captured file is now. Run it through G-Spot?

    2] You may be getting a choke point on the USB. Do you have any antivirus running or any other programme running?

    3] Try rendering out to a standard AVI file before going directly to WMV. Having longform-ish work it is a good idea to have and retain an intermediate AVI - well, that's what I do.

    Sorry my technical knowledge is a bit limited. I have just started rendering to WMV again but am trying to directly to the internal drive, if this fails to work I will do as you say and render to AVI. Sony A1 is the model of film camera I used. SONY a1 hvr on mini dv tapes.

    What do you mean by G-spot?

    Thanks for your help by the way

    G-Spot is a little programme which will identify exactly what your video is. Free here: GSpot Codec Information Appliance

    Any particular reason for rendering to .wmv? I agree with Grazie - rendering to an external HDD via USB is not the best. Firewire is far better. Used that myself for years with no problems.

    I have been rendering straight to my internal hardrive but still have been having problems somewhere in the last 20% the frame count will just stop and refuse to progress through the last part of the film but the prgram will still run

    Have you tried Grazies suggestion of rendering to another format? (.AVI)

    I also had a project fail to render. This was a 60 minute video full of high def video footage and hi res photos. What I did to get around this was divide the project into two parts. I rendered the first half and the second half separately. Then, I created a new project, imported the two renders, and then rendered them as one. I know this isn't optimal for the best of the best quality, but it worked great for me and my application. Just a thought.
