Thread: Vegas Rendering Video Too Small

    Unhappy Vegas Rendering Video Too Small

    I'm a noob, and currently using Sony Vegas 9 to put together a little gaming video. I'm using the template "HDV 720-30p (1280x720, 29.970 fps)" and am trying to render into a .mp4. The project and preview window size are set to 1280x720 and when I'm editing it everything looks fine. But when I try to render it, the video gets shrunk and I can't for the life of me figure out why. Can anyone help me? Feel free to ask me for any screenshots you might need to get a better idea.

    What size does it get shrunk to ?

    Around 519x292. When I hit "scale video to fit preview window" it resembles the size it gets shrunk to, if that has any bearing on anything.

    Which rendering template are you using and have you altered it? If you are using an unaltered 720p template then the video really is 1280 x 720 and your problem is with the video player you are using. Which is what ?

    I used an altered .mp4 template that I changed the frame size to 720p, so that might be it. What template is 720p by default? Sorry, newbie troubles.

    In the MainConcept AVC/AAC (mp4) format the is a template called "Internet 720" this should be fine for you. You might want to check that it is set to the correct frame rate for you ie 29.970 (NTSC).

    I hope this works for you.

    These are the only rendering templates I see? With Youtube HD being the one I edited because I couldn't find any 720p template.

    What I see on the screen is a 4:3 aspect ratio image not a 16:9 aspect ratio image. If you render this video at 1280 x 720 it will have black bars on either side because that size is a 16:9 aspect ratio. Check you original footage really is what you think it is.

    Ah, I see. I was using FRAPs, which must have recorded it at my screen resolution (which is 1680x1050). What do you suggest that I do?

    Your FRAPS is running at 1.6.

    A 4x3 ratio is 1.333

    1.6 <> 1.333 ?

    What is the PAR of the FRAPS? Is it 1:1? Are we comparing like for like here?
