I do not know what information to give you on this one but if you ask i'll try my best to tell you.
What I have done is create a video from my camcorder footage I took yesterday evening. It is 11 minutes long and I have added all necessary effects for it to be put onto youtube, then comes rendering. This is my first time using vegas 8.0 and I followed a quick guide on how to make a decent youtube template so as you do I expected it to all go smoothly.
Ofcourse, it didnt...
As it gets to 50% it freezes Vegas, along with my computer and gives me no other option but to power the machine off and reboot.
At this point it occurs to me that rendering it in .WMV (originally MPEG-2 files) may be the cause, so I then set it to "Main-Concept MPEG-2" and make a custom template. The only template change is video rendering quality is set to "Best".
Alas, it does not work and proceeds to crash on 50% again and again whenever I try. I have also tried cutting half the clips out and rendering but again it didnt work and froze up.
Any ideas please?
Windows Vista x64 O.S if that helps.
