Receiving error when trying to render
on Dec 28, 2014 at 2:16:38 am
Last Edited By Ron Whitaker on Dec 28, 2014 at 2:30:51 am

I have a video on the timeline in mp4 format and I want to render it to MPEG-2 so that I can put it on a DVD.

I'm just trying to render the video right now. When I click the Render button, I receive the error "An error occurred while creating the media file . The reason for the error could not be determined."

I'm using SVP 13, Build 428. The original .MP4 footage on the timeline is 1920x1080, 29.970 progressive.

In the Render As dialog box, I have the following settings:

Output type: MPEG-2
Width: 1920
Height: 1080
Frame rate: 29.970
Aspect ratio: 16:9


Any ideas why this would occur?

Thank you.

Curious to know if you get the same error message if you try rendering
out in another format?

Much the same as Steve, but:-

1] What are you rendering from? Exactly what is inside that MP4

2] Have you done this exact same workflow before?

3] Do you have GPU acceleration switched on?

4] How much DISC space do you have available to that disc you are rendering to?

5) Do try a DVD Burn to a RW directly FROM your Project Timeline.

Steve:

No. I just rendered out a project a couple of weeks ago. It was a project I shot and edited and I rendered it out to .MP4 format for the web. It worked fine.

I also tried bringing in a whole new video and rendering it out to MPEG-2 format and I received the same error.

Hmm, I'm not sure you can set your render resolution at 1080 for a DVD (720x480)

I've had some of these problems in the past and found our something had gone wrong with the video I was trying to render. My solution was to render short portions throughout until it came to the portion where it messed up and wouldn't render. Then I've either replaced or tried to fix that spot.

Also had issues with rendering where nothing was seemingly wrong with the video to be rendered but the only way I could render it was to again render it in small sections, then put those sections back on the timeline for a full length render.

Doug, you're spot on! Now, somewhere within the DVD Format will block any increase above the DVD limits. You've found it!

That's it!

Thanks for your reply, Doug!

I changed the size in the Project Properties to 720x480 and then simply chose the NTSC 720x480 template in the Render As dialog box and it rendered!

Thanks.

Now, why is that? Is it just a limitation, kinda like the you-shouldn't-go-over 8,000,000 CBR?

Now my question is, I need to render out the audio. I think the preferable format is AC-3? I need to render it with the same name as the video, correct?

Now, all I want is to burn the video and audio on a DVD. Simple. No menus. I just want to put the DVD in a player and press Play and have it play.

What's the best and simplest way to accomplish that?

[Ron Whitaker] "Now, why is that? Is it just a limitation, kinda like the you-shouldn't-go-over 8,000,000 CBR?"No, it's the resolution. I can go up to 9mbs.

It is a limit within the DVD standard for a playable DVD.

Thanks.

Now, if I just want to have a plain, simple DVD, no menus, just the audio and video on the DVD so that when I insert the DVD into the player, it simply plays.

How do I do that?

Try the menu item: Tools | Burn Disc | DVD... That's all you need to do and it will burn a DVD right from the Vegas Pro timeline with all the correct rendering options so that it plays when you put it in a player.

John:

I did that and it worked!

My question is, the original footage on the timeline was 29.970fps progressive. But when I burned to DVD from the timeline from the Tools menu, the option it gave for DVD was 60i. Why is that?

Can you only burn progressive to Blu-Ray?

[Ron Whitaker] "My question is, the original footage on the timeline was 29.970fps progressive. But when I burned to DVD from the timeline from the Tools menu, the option it gave for DVD was 60i. Why is that?"
Because DVD's only support 60i, 50i, and 24p. That's it. That's all there was back in 1995 when DVD's were invented so that's all you get 20 years later.
[Ron Whitaker] "Can you only burn progressive to Blu-Ray?"
You can always burn 24p on either Blu-ray or DVD. Blu-ray may support newer formats because it's design allows for updates to it's capabilities.

Blu-ray currently supports 60i, 50i, 24p, 50p, & 60p. It still doesn't support 30p.

True John, 20 years is too long, but what we gonna do, lol

Yea, this is a really important point that lots of people don't realize. We get a lot of questions about why they can't render to DVD with 60p from their shiny new camera and they don't realize that DVD's are 20 year old technology that can't support 60p and other new frame rates.
