Hi! I’ve been playing with vegas pro for a while now but I still can’t get a hang of rendering videos… I just can’t seem to find that right output format and settings. Either the video turns out too blurry, pixelated or too dark! Can anyone suggest an optimum setup to render my videos please?

Thanks. At 4:04 you set the Options>Preferences>Editing>New still image length = 0.02 in order to get 30 frames/second. Why did you choose 0.02? When I do the math (e.g. 1/30), the value should be 0.333. 0.02 results in 50 frames/second. Or is my math fuzzy?

I get huge lag when i enter the images to the timeline! Sony Vegas stops responding and when i finally get them to the timeline, between every image i see a black flash like you would open and close your eyes rapidly :0. My PC is very powerful so the lag can’t be there because of bad processor etc. Do you have any suggestions?

then its not good enough. i use 1minute to render 470 pictures into a 15 second long film in 1080p.

I have a very fast computer (quard core ect.) but it still takes me A LOT of time to render even the smallest 5 second clip

go to options – quantize to frames and disable it, then import your images

valarua says:

to disable it go to Options – > Quantize to Framse (disable it) then import your images once again
