Odd Vegas & QT Issue & Solution
by Sean Robinson on Apr 25, 2012 at 1:51:06 am
I'm posting this in case I can spare someone else my headache.
In short, I was attempting to render a very short spot to an uncompressed MOV. The render would hang everytime without rendering a single frame (Vegas didn't crash - it simply sat still until I cancelled the render)
After uninstalling and reinstalling EVERYTHING related to production on my PC, on a whim I tried rendering to a different hard drive.
AND IT WORKED!
So, before you set about reinstalling things when a render breaks, try rendering to a different destination.
Question: can anyone explain why this issue arose in the first place? It seems strange to me.

That seems odd. I do know that you need twice as much render space on your hard drive for MOV files because Vegas writes to a temporary file first and then makes a copy of that file to the final MOV file. Why it doesn't just rename it .mov is anyones guess but it does require that you need 2x as much space and for uncompressed that could be huge.
