Vegas 9 will not render to MPG2

Hi,

In Vegas 8 I have always rendered from Vegas to MPG2 before bringing it over into Architect. Now, with Vegas 9, I get an unknown error when trying to render to MPG2 but it will render to AVI just fine for DVD Architect. I really prefer to render to MPG2 from Vegas though. Does anyone have an idea what is wrong?

Jason, this is a long shot, but try rendering to a different drive and see what happens.

If you're using the demo version, I believe MPG2 is disabled due to MPEG licensing restrictions. ISTR that was true of earlier demo versions.

Thank you, that turns out to be it. I think. I had been running the demo then bought the upgrade. I had just installed the serial number. Now I unistalled it and reinstalled it with the serial number and it works very well. Merci!

Is there a licensed version of 8.x still installed perhaps?

Generally speaking, MPEG2 is not available in the demo versions. However, MPEG2 has typically worked if a previous version of Vegas with MPEG2 was already working. Remember that MPEG2 is automatically unlocked when you install and register DVD Architect!

So, is MPEG2 working in Vegas 8? Is DVD Architect installed and registered.
