Alright, Troxilla, thanks. Seems your newsletter simply says to use MPEG-2 mainconcept encoder, and the preset for MPEG-2 DV stream (or whatever). I made the mistake the first time of not including audio, but now it's all good in the hood, yo dope whack bling homey shorty.

Hi Patrick,
For your sake (and that of anyone else who isn't married to Cineform) I will let you know I'm using MidVid's MJPEG codec with great results. By far the best looking compression, relatively efficient too. Perfect for NLE. And free!

Reason I switched away from QT is I Was getting problems keeping the frames accurate. It was for some reason inserting a random number of frames for each clip throwing off my synchronization.

urgent - printing to tape problem

EDIT: i've figured out how to print both the video and audio to tape (simply by using the "print to tape" feature rather than just playing the timeline to the external monitor) but now I have a new problem: Vegas starts to render the whole thing though I have not added any effects that need rendering. Then it gives me an error, not enough space (even though I have 9 gb free and it's about 30 minutes of video)

What am I doing wrong? Is it really necessary to render everything before printing to tape?

EDIT2: It might be good to mention that the project is PAL widescreen (16:9), progessive. I've tried all the different settings, but every time the whole timeline needs to be rendered, which always gets an out of space-error immediately. Now I'm rendering the whole thing to an AVI, maybe that can be exported...

any help would be greatly appreciated, i'm in a hurry!

Well, if your input is not 100% PAL widescreen (16:9), progessive, that would explain the renders.

my input is 100% widescreen PAL, progressive. I've tried outputting it as such, and I've tried everything else: interlaced, 4:3, etc.. every possible combination - each requires the rendering.

What I really want to know is - do you normally have to render everything or is it because I screwed up some setting?

Vegas ONLY outputs audio over firewire when you do a print to tape. When you "play the timeline", the audio goes out the audio card. Also, when you "play the timeline", you may not get full framerates depending on the number of effects added... etc...

The correct way to output to tape is to do a Tools - Print to DV Tape. This will render all pieces that need rendering, prepare the audio for output, and then send the results to tape. ONLY changed sections will be rendered. If you have not changed any particular piece, that piece will NOT be rendered.

As for running out of space, how many drives do you have? Have you changed where Vegas stores "Temp" files? It's possible your "C" drive is running out of space even though your files are on the "D" drive and your result is going to the "D" drive. Look in both Options - Preferences and File - Properties and change the file locations.

As for why you think pieces are rendering that don't need rendering, it's hard to say without more information. For example, does your project type match your media type? Do you have a 3D track? Could you have possibly added an effect? Are all the "Levels" sliders on the track headers at 100%? etc...

ready to buy. will I get a free upgrade to 6?

I evaluated Vegas a month or two ago but decided to wait to see if there would be a new version coming out. Now I see that 6 will be officially announced in about 1 week. Should I hold off on purchasing Vegas 5+DVD today or is there any official word on a free upgrade to 6 when it's ready? I'm hoping I can go ahead and buy 5 and start using it right now and then upgrade it to 6.0 for free when it's available. But if I can't do that, I'll have to wait. And then I might change my mind again...

If you purchase Vegas 5 + DVD today, you will qualify for a free upgrade to Vegas 6 + DVD. Videoguys is running a special right now.
