Sony Movie Studio not rendering properly
on Mar 19, 2015 at 10:05:44 am

Ive just encountered a problem with Movie Studio which I haven't experienced before. I'm trying to render a PAL DV video (standard definition) avi and I'm not having any success at all. Ive tried multiple times and each time, it takes an unusually quick time to 'create' the movie (about a fraction of a second.) Then when I try and open the video file, it won't open and a message says "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing this file." According to the specs, the file size is 575kb and the running time is 00:00:00. However, on my timeline, the video runs for 3 minutes and 10 seconds.

After the first few attempts, I noticed that the video and audio streams on the timeline were not highlighted. So then I highlighted them but this made no difference. Though it still looks like they are 'ungrouped' though surely this wouldn't make any difference?

Could anyone think of a solution that could enable me to complete my video? Not that long ago, I rendered another PAL DV avi and there were no problems at all with that one.

What template are you using? Did you modify it in any way?

Do you have any Codec Packs installer on your system like K-Lite? These will interfere with Movie Studio rendering and should be removed if you have them. That's the only thing I can think of that would cause a problem like this (i.e., some other DV codec that Vegas is having trouble using).

Hello John and thankyou for your reply. I was using the PAL DV template. I'm not sure about codec packs but the problem has been solved.

On my last attempt, I decided to keep the original project name (for the rendered video file) and that worked. On my previous attempts at rendering, I was changing the name and I'm guessing that that was causing the problem. This is odd because in the past, I have changed the project / file name (at the rendering stage) and didn't have any issues.

Glad you figured it out. It doesn't make sense but if it works, that's all that matters. ;-)

It's happening again. And once again with a PAL DV avi (SD) file. This has never happened with HD video files. What worked last time is not working this time. I kept the project name the same but no luck. I also changed the name but still no success. Just like last time, the rendering is super quick - it takes a fraction of a second to reach 100%. The completed video file is unplayable. The file is 575kb and the duration is 00:00:00.

Another thing in common with the other file that had this problem recently is that the video footage was imported via firewire from a MiniDv camcorder. From the same camera. Though Ive also imported other footage from this camera in the past and never had any issues then.

Ive tried several times with the same result. Just now, I closed Sony Movie Studio, reopened it and made another attempt. This time, it worked. I didn't do anything different. This is really strange and buggy.

Could it be that you have a small timeline selection and you have the option to render just the selection turned on? This would cause the behavior you are describing. Also try opening a new project, drop one DV file onto the timeline and try and render it with the same template. If this works, then it's something about your project (perhaps corruption) that could be causing the render problem.
