Here's how I did it:

1) download the 20 meg standalone .NET Framework install file from Microsoft.

2) Burn it to a CD

3) Install on any machine I need.

You all have great points but there is one problem with what your saying. If you had a segment you have edited, add titles, special keyfram animations, and you have rendered it as an avi and imported it to your main project if you ever wanted to go back and make changes you would not be able too. Thats a problem with rendering and importing it, yeah its great and all but when i am editing and working on a piece i work on it and change it in so many ways that rendering and importing would do me no good it would just cost me time.

I've done this a lot of times without any problems indeed, do
check out Edwards newsletter!

If you need to resize I would rather go with 720x800 then 655x480.
In that case Vegas has more resolution to work with to do the
0.9 pixel aspect ratio conversion.

Most VCD's I've seen are indeed "start directly", Law.

There are basically a couple of ways. Most camera's support black
& white shooting as well (usually through color saturation). Then
you could do it in multiple ways in post.

Sometimes I like to not fully dial out the color, but almost. So it
feels black and white, but it's just borderline.

I suggest you play with the filters that are there in Vegas. It can
be done with the special B&W filter, color curvers, saturation
control etc.

Are you perhaps running an older version of the .NET framework?
Make sure you have 1.1 to be safe. Which drive shouldn't matter
indeed. But you can always uninstall Vegas and then install it
to the C drive to see if that fixes it. Sometimes a weird thing like
that might be in the way even though it shouldn't.

Don't know - Never got a CD (electronic purchase)

I know Gary included it on the Excalibur and Neon CDs.

You have to look at it a different way. I don't import them into a final project UNTIL they are ALL totally complete and ready to go. Yes, I build in sections. But if ANY section is not finalized, I don't build the final. Now I *may* rough a final up if I need a preview but the final is exactly that - the very LAST step.

Besides, it only takes a few seconds to built the final. Just double-click on each of the rendered files in order (I usually have 4). If any are wrong, go back and fix it and rebuild the final from scratch. Doesn't take that long to add 4 clips to the timeline.

Thanks Guys.

I'll wait to see if it's on the Vegas CD before I try downloading it.

Still waiting for the postman.

Waiting, Waiting......

Tried closeing down everything I can thing of through msconfig and still does the same thing, so I will keep trying to eliminate more and more stuff until I get it clean or the thing won't boot.
I will even re render the whole thing just to make sure it is not in the render process.

Transitions with Vegas 4.0 problem

The pictures are portrait stlye pictures and do not fill the entire video frame, for loss of better explaination, they have a black fill on both sides to fill the frame. When the transition is set it pulls the picture along with the surrounding black area. I only want the picture to transition without the black fill in area. I have tried to set a transparent background to the picture but it ignores it and still shows the black edges.

I am missing something? I can post a link to an example of what is happening if it would help.

Thanks,

Jon
