(Is that all the info you need?)
Hey everyone. I came to Sony Vegas with no experience in this field whatsoever, and over the last few months have taught myself, but right now I figure there must be something that I'm missing. Rendering a 6 minute long .mp4 can take over 4 hours. However, this could simply be that my PC is not up to scratch (please suggest what to add/increase), my Project is inefficient, or I'm just missing something (or, alternatively, this could just be normal).
Here is an example of the type of video I make:
Lollipop Chainsaw - Watch Out For The Balls Achievement/Trophy - YouTube
Now, as you can see, there is a lot going on, from the multiple video files, to the additional images, to Track Motion, and a couple of Track FX (Sharpness).
I understand that with so much going on, the rendering process is going to be slower, but are there any improvements that can be made (bear in mind I'm self-taught and may just be missing something simple)?
I have found that removing the Track FX does provide a small boost to rendering speed, but I also feel the video suffers, and would prefer to keep it.
I imagine that removing some of the images would be significant, but they are an integral part to my videos.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
