Rendering problems with Vegas 8 Pro (trial)

I have completed editing an HD 10 minute short with Vegas 8 Pro, and I now want to render it into something that can be burned on DVD. Unfortunately, no matter what I try to do, Vegas either outright crashes, or gives me an error message and closes.

I know this isn't a general rendering problem, because I rendered some test HD footage when I started, just to be sure I could. I'm guessing the problem is related to the size of the footage.

I have tried rendering it in several different formats (MPEG-2 is my preferred, but I tried .avi and .wmv too), and the result is always the same - no go. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

I'am not sure this could be ralated but some of my m2t clips that caused v7 to hang could easily be opened in v8.

The big question is: Could it be that v8 is more sloppy inspecting m2t's for errors, and thus increase chances of crash later in the workflow? I have no evidence that this would be the case.

Check the m2t files for errors, it could easily be done with some of these apps...just to be sure...

I have used mpeg2repair with luck....

I believe you just discovered the limitation of the trial version.
Sorry :-(

Try the Dynamic Ram to 0MB and Rendering threads to 1 trick. If that doesn't work, buy Vegas 8.

Unfortunately those work arounds didn't solve my problem.

Regarding trial versus normal, how could it be the trial version? It would be one thing if I got a notification saying the trial cannot handle files of a certain size/length, but random crashes, error messages, and stalls? That isn't the sort of thing in trial versions that impresses upon me the desireability of the full version.

Did you check that source files for errors?
