I'm using Vegas Pro 9.0. Today, I created a project that took me hours to do. However, I ran into a roadblock when trying to render.
Originally I thought I was using files that Vegas simply didn't like to render, which may or may not still be the case. I'm able to render each video file (there are multiple) on its own. The videos play just fine in the editing window and can be edited just fine.
The problem is when I try to render them all together, most of them with the Track Motion function to sort of 'split' the screen between the multiple videos. The rendering process will hang at 0%, while the 'rendering time' and 'time to complete' continue to go up. The video render preview also does not move from the first frame.
This causes Vegas to error. When I click Cancel, it does not actually cancel the render, it just stays on "Render canceled by user." I then have to use the task manager to kill the process.
I really don't want to have to re-do all that work, and I'm really running out of ideas, which included re-converting the files to different file types and replacing them in the project, downloading ffdshow, moving the files to new video tracks and deleting specific videos to try to narrow down the problem. Is there perhaps some video decoder I have to download for Vegas?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
