Hi everyone. Before I start let me give you my computer specs:
Model: HP Pavillion dv7 Notebook PC
Processor: Intel Core i7-2720QM @ 2.20GHz
Memory: 8 gigs
System: 64 bit
I edit primarily with ripped dvd footage, and I convert the vob files to DV AVI using MPEG Streamclip.
I bought a new laptop 2 weeks ago and installed my Sony Vegas Pro 8.0a on it, which I have never previously had this trouble with. Basically whenever I go to render a project (roughly 1 and a half minutes, maybe a bit more) to either mainconcept mp4 or wmv, the render fails and a message pops up saying "Rendering failed: a reason could not be determined" or "Your system is low on memory, try closing other programs" etc.
Now I have read a few threads already that deal with this, and I have gone into 'Options0-preferences-video- and changed the Dynamic Ram Preview to 0 with 1 rendering thread, but this doesn't help. I did have Norton antivirus preinstalled o nthe computer and have heard this can be problematic, so I've switched it off or do I need to removie it completely?
Any suggestions would help me at this point, I am at a loss of what to do.
