I'm currently running Vegas Pro 9e and I'm having some hiccups. After 50/51% during my render it bogs down and renders 30 frames and pauses for 2 seconds then does the same thing again till 100%. From what I've noticed, it does that after going back to frame 0/1. The CPU percentage drops down to 25% from 70% and it triples my rendering time. Is this normal? Is it rechecking the file? I tried changing my rendering types from CBR(Two pass) to Quality VBR and Bit rate VBR. All of which results in the same issues after 50% of rendering time.
I didn't have this issue with my older processor which was a Dual Core E6400.
I'm currently running Vegas pro 9e in Windows XP 32 bit. Vegas9 process set to High
My file is only 2m28s and it's taking 22/30 minutes to render!(depending on CBR Two pass or VBR)
Processor: Intel Q9505 2.83GHZ
HDD: Seagate 320GB, Samsung Spinpoint 640GB, Western Digital Blue Caviar 1000GB
My current project settings are WMV 720P and I'm rendering out to 720P as well
And my source/original files are M2T at 1920x1080i.
