Rendering Video

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?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What are your PC specs? If your PC is a pile, don't bother rendering as it will take you ages.

Thanks for the response. Here are the specs.

Intel Pentium Dual Core T4200 (2.0GHz/800Mhz FSB/1MB cache), Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1 64 Bit

Video Card: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500HD

I can render short videos so maybe if I broke up my 30 minute video into chunks it might work?

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.

FINALLY was able to render it in 5 minute clips rather than as one 30 minute file. Thanks.
