Just completed my first major project, which includes a main menu with "Play All" and "Play List" buttons, and a linked play list with 18 buttons. The play list includes audio/video projects that were previously rendered in Vegas as .mpg.
1) When preparing to burn, I get the message, "Audio track will be compressed". I thought the audio track was compressed when it was redered as an mpg file in Vegas. Is this normal?
2) When "previewing play all" in Architect, the time between playing the sequential tracks is 1-2 seconds, which is ideal. However, when the project is burned and played on a TV/DVD player, the time between each track is 3-4 seconds, which is too long looking at a black screen. Is there a preset for this time?
I'm not sure I totally understand what you are saying. Here is an example of waht I have done; In Vegas I opened a new project that contains a video clip (big band) that was previously edited and saved as a .veg file. This clip is dragged to the timeline. From Explorer I selected an audio clip previous imported and saved as a .wav file, and dragged it to the timeline. I then had to sync the video and audio tracks. This was then saved as a new .veg file and then rendered as a .mpg file. So now in Architect I have a number of these previously rendered clips that are added to the playlist, and then re-rendered when I burn a disc.
Are you saying that the .wav audio file should be rendered as and mpeg2 file before using it in a project? This is where I'm confused.
