Does Vegas display rendering speed?
on Mar 8, 2017 at 11:52:02 pm

Hi,

when Vegas is rendering, can it display how many frames per second its rendering?
Like when using the Handbrake. You can see the two FPS counters. http://www.legitreviews.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/handbrake-gui-645x48...
At the moment in Vegas I have to check how many frames there is in total, check the time it spent rendering and do the math.

Thank you!

That's as good as it gets. ...and before you are disappointed, Final Cut Pro X doesn't even tell you how long it took so if you want to compare rendering speeds you need a physical stop-watch! :(

I'm using this one from SeMW. I don't know how accurate it is, viz how complex the FX and so is, but it also has other neat tools for Free !

Thank you both for answering.
Well Graham, that's exactly what I was looking for.
It's not less accurate than my calculator. It's actually better than I expected.

It displays everything I wanted Vegas to display:
Time
Percentage
Current/Total Frames
FPS/FPS Average
Current File Output Size/Estimated.
Data Rate

I just noticed that the output stats are blank when using MainConcept, for some reason.
Switching to SonyAVC brings the output stats back.

I was actually comparing rendering speeds cause I have loads of videos waiting to get rendered.
I also installed Window 7 on one of the machines to see what speeds can be achieved when using CUDA.
I'm going to test OpenCL later but CUDA is fast.
My test results show that it's ~4 times faster than CPU when using MainConcept. The card is a very old 9800 GTX.

I was more surprised when I started using SonyAVC. Sony AVC (CPU Rendering) seems to be 8 times faster than MainConcept CPU rendering and twice as fast as MainConcept CUDA. - And I though CUDA was fast...

That's when I stopped and scratched my head for a minute. SonyAVC got me confused, how can it be so fast? Is doing a lousy job? Well, `it's not. The output file size is pretty much the same (700Mb.)
I can only tell the difference between the two when using a large +40 inch screen. SonyAVC at 16-26Mbps seems to be more blocky, especially when looking at reflections. However, the both look the same, when using a smaller FullHD screen (24".)

Is the SonyAVC newer, more optimized, improved over time and better overall?

I also wanted to see how Adobe was handling these tasks but...
My rusty old CS3 Premier couldn't handle it. The rendering times were 4 times slower than the slowest MainConcept CPU Rendering in Vegas. It was only utilizing 2 CPU threads and crashed every now and then.
