I have been trying to render a 82 minute project (all nested footage from other Vegas projects) with the DVD architect setting in the render options. My GPU acceleration is turned OFF, yet whenever I get to 50% (this is a two-pass if it makes a difference) Sony Vegas crashes. Just completely unresponsive, and then an error message asking if I want to send crash data to Sony.
Can anyone help me? This is an important project, and frankly this is getting ridiculous. I know it's not a RAM problem, I have 8 gigs of it.
Because you are rendering Vegas Nested files on the timeline, that's why
it is happening... Render out those individual nested files first, and then
drop those rendered pieces of video back on the timeline replacing those
nest and, you are good to go Mark!
Hey Steve, thank you as always for your invaluable advice. Wouldn't your approach lead to a drop in quality though? Or could it be prevented by rendering the individual nested files in high quality mp4 files and then rendering the whole as a dvd file?
No, you dont need to worry about quality loss. Even though there will be
loss to some degree, it wont be perceivable to the naked eye, so sometimes
all this talk about quality loss thru re-rendering is much hoopla about nothing!
But, you can still easily crush the whole quality loss issue if you choose, by
rendering out using a lossless codec like Lagarith which is free. Simple and easy!
