Hey guys, I'm using Sony Vegas movie studio 9.0 and I'm trying to render a 30 minute video. I can't even get it to render a single frame at this point, is this likely a problem with my computer or the program itself? It is obviously a huge file and will take a while to render, but I've let it run for 10 minutes a couple times and like I said, nothing.
What type of file should I be rendering it as? I've tried both mp4 and .avi?
Your video card is the obvious bottleneck of your system, most onboard cards aren't that great from my own personal experience. My initial thought was that it might have been your CPU, but that CPU should definitely be able to handle video rendering.
If you are able to render short videos, I would try breaking it up into smaller chunks. If this is something you are going to do frequently though, I would recommend upgrading to a PCI-e video card of some sort.
