    Default How long should you expect for a 25m film to render in???

    Just compleated editing a 25min video but its taking hours to render.

    Its been going 6 hours and it says there is still 7 hours to go.

    Is this normal?

    This has a lot of factors to it a lot to do with processor speed BUT also the amount of FX, colour work etc. you have done. Also the start and finish format etc.....

    ... plus if your composite level isn't 100% in any sections this has a dramatic impact.

    I have a small graphic through out the film and a few during it as well but would this be enough for it to take what is on course to be 16 hours.

    Also the end format is mpeg2(i think)

    16 hours seems a long time to me for a 25 min film. Have you got other programs running in the background. Even some email programs can take up a lot of memory.

    I dunno, but for years I've read advice about Vegas rendering that the first thing to check is that the composite level is 100% (it's quite easy to accidentally drop it by a percent or two). I guess it's because it would mean every pixel having to be recalculated.

    It does seem a long time though for what you've described. I don't know what format your source is but if it's SD AVI I'd try a render first to that (this will give you the highest quality "master") then render that as MPEG2.
    Or even do a render of just the video first, add the graphic overlay second and then do a fnal convert to MPEG.

    Ctrl + Alt + Del to get the Task Manager then right click the Vegas Aplication and the priority settings can be changed from there.
