DIVX doesn't appear in rendering custom template options
on Oct 5, 2015 at 6:13:58 pm

I am using a Sony Handycam, Windows 7, Sony Vegas Video Pro 13. Am pretty new to all this. My footage is all full 1080P, I probably need to go down to 720p renderings for shorter file sizes for now. I need to render in either MP4 or AVI format, and the codec needs to be DIVX. Then I can watch my videos on our big-screen HD TV...playing them through a USB stick. The manual says the TV only supports DIVX codec. SO I downloaded and installed DIVX pro ver. 9.1. Rebooted computer. Loaded some short clips on timeline, selected "render as". I don't even see an option for .MP4...so I select Video for Windows (AVI) and open the custom template window. When I open Video Format option, DIVX codec does not appear! What do I need to do to get it to appear? I definitely have DIVX Pro installed, it shows up in Windows Programs and Features list.

DivX uses the AVI container.

I'm guessing that you may have downloaded the 32-bit version of DivX. Vegas Pro 13.0 is 64-bit. You need to install the 64-bit version of DivX to be compatible. Then it should show up under video formats for AVI files.

Yea, that was exactly why. I installed free K-Lite codec pack, which includes 64 bit drivers, and now the DIVX codec appears in RENDER AS list. Many thanks!

Yea, installing K-Lite was a bad idea for the reasons in the links that Jorma gave. If you start to have other render issues, look no further than K-Lite. You could have done a lot of damage to your Vegas Pro installation. What you should have done was just install the 64-bit version of DivX which is all that you needed.
