Render to High definition File
on Nov 17, 2015 at 6:23:08 am

Hi. I'm trying to render high definition footage to an MP4 file (h.264) so I can save the 5 hour video on a flash drive. So far it's taken well over 8 hours! Is this normal? I have the Intel Quick Sync working for me. I'm stuck.
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.

Yes, it's completely normal for rendering to highly compressed formats like AVC/H.264 to take 2x - 3x logner than real-time to render so I wouldn't be surprised if your 5 hour video took 10 - 15 hours to render depending on your CPU.

Thanks. How are editors getting their videos out so much quicker?

I suspect that most editors don't do 5 hr videos. My beloved of over 40 years would call an attorney if I asked her to watch 5 hrs of anything. LOL. If rendering time is an issue, then get a faster computer or reduce the quality of your render or reduce the length of your video. Lots of options.

The project is a 5 hour wedding video. I also need to render it for Bluray. What would be the best setting to render it quickly? My computer is speed inc. :)

Michal, I don't do Blu-ray so I'll let others take care of that.
For an MP4 file, you should take a look at frame serving to Handbrake. I do it all the time and I find it a lot faster than letting Vegas do it.
Instructions for doing this, a link to the site with all the software needed and an instructional video can be found on the following thread on the Sony Vegas Pro forum.

Rendering to MPEG2 would be quicker than AVC but you will never get 5 hrs of MPEG2 on a single Blue-ray disc with any quality. AVC will give you more hours for the same file size but will take longer to render. Take your pick.
