How to adjust the render settings to the project settings conveniently?

A project has a resolution and a frame rate.

A render template has a resolution and a frame rate.

Yet, I seem to need to adjust the latter by hand to match the former. Surely there is a better way?

Yes there is. And stop calling me Shirley! šŸ˜‰

The easiest way is to make a Template and use that. Done.

But do tell, how often do you need to make changes that this becomes tiresome? Or are you asking a different thing?

I'm usually asking myself this question when I made a screencast: They are normally in some arbitrary resolution covering only a smaller portion of the screen that made sense for that specific screencast. They can also be in 15, 30 and 60 fps.

It's not a *huge* deal, but it would be really nice if Vegas would be more convenient here.

Eh? In exactly what way or convenient would you like/prefer Vegas to be? If you come up with a suggestion, as guys from Magix do read posts, you maybe onto something.

Over to you Jens. šŸ˜

Well, a good start would be to display the project resolution/fps in the respective render configuration dialogs where the render resolution/fps is configured - so that I don't have to hunt down what those are from the original video material (I can't access the project settings while in those dialogs which makes things a little more annoying there.)

Even better would a button there to "take resolution and fps from project settings".

Yet even better, but a lot more involved, would be to have templates that don't specify a bitrate, but a quality level (as ffmpeg does at least for h264 encodings) as that could remain constant accross resolutions. With this, you could even offer a "resolution/fps-independent template" to just select on rendering and go without editing anything.

So there you have it, my suggestion for making this a bit better. :-)

Jens, have you not tried the Filtering Templates options? Itā€™ll dig out Templates thatā€™ll match parts of your Project and some.

If you are running VP15, which I highly recommend, others have a different experience, I've just reacquainted myself with the Render Options and been stunned by the much improved GUI for searching, selecting and adapting Renders and their Templates.

Kudos to the MAGIX engineers.
