The encoding in Vegas is better than in Architect, not worse. Vegas lets you do 2-pass encoding, Architect does not. Not to mention all the tweaks available in Vegas encoding versus Architect encoding.

What I do is take my vegas timeline (currently using P2 HD footage 23.97fps 1920x1080 and raylight ultra1.1)and then use frameserver to render to my hard drive, which appears instantly. I minimize vegas 9, launch Sony dvd architect, set it using avc 23.97fps 1920x1080 at 28Megabits per second, attach the frameserver AVI and burn to blu ray. Great image... but again, it takes 40min for every min on the time line. But no hard drive space for the render. Any faster or better way of going? Thanks, Bill

AVC is hard to encode, so it may not be that much quicker doing it directly in Vegas. But I would expect it to be at least a little quicker, all else being equal.

But I think it's worth a shot to try rendering to that same Blu-ray AVC template in Vegas and see how long that takes.

And honestly, at that high a data rate, I wouldn't think there would be much difference going with MPEG-2 instead, which would encode a lot quicker.

I use Particle Illusion. Clients love the effects I can get. BUT, there ain't no plugin for Vegas. Soooo..... I do a FS into Pi and use the AVI as the background "Plate" to do my Pi effects > Save with Alfie Channel > Bring into Vegas and Robert's yer mother's Bruvver!

So, for FrameServing to another s/w option - FrameServer is a "Mean Machine"!

I just tried with a short (24 sec) clip and it served to PI and opened as background no problem. Tried with a much longer 40min veg and just got a black screen in PI. Have to dash out now but will have another check tomorrow.

Win XP
Intel Core 2

Eugene, I tied your suggestion of rendering to Mpeg first(best HD quality) and then burn to blu ray... the frameserver works faster. But it's still too long. A 100min project would take over 66 hrs !!!! Any suggestions? Thanks. Bill

Interesting results, Bill. If it was in a 2-pass mode, that would explain it, since Architect doesn't do 2-pass. Beyond that, could be some different settings I guess.

Anyway, I agree that's too long. So I would say try encoding as MPEG-2 instead of AVC.

In my own tests, my AVC encoding was a 12:1 time ratio and my MPEG-2 encoding was an 8.5:1 time ratio. (My system's pretty slow, I'll be building a new computer sometime soon.)

Once you get to 25Mb/s or higher, I've never seen anyone see a difference between AVC and MPEG-2 for HD footage.

Eugene, the encoding time ratio is in the same ball park as yours, but add the burn time to blu ray and then your computer is done for long while.
