Render Nested HDV Project Vegas 8.1

Did Vegas 8.1 have a problem with rendering nested veg files with m2t and jpg files? I tried to render a nested project with 5 source projects to a mpg file and the render time was outrageous. The length of the entire project was 49 minutes. I cancelled the render at about 1 hour but it had at least 15 hours to go and counting, and this was on my new Win 7 I7 930 with 6GB RAM. Processor utilization was only about 12%. I was able to render each project individually to mpg without a problem and processor utilization was in the 90s. RAM preview at 350MB, 16 threads.

I then rendered each m2t and jpg project to an intermediate mxf file, and built a new project veg nest with the mxf files. I rendered it to mpg without a problem.

If it is an 8.1 problem, I know nothing can be done about it. I just want to know if there's something I did wrong. I know I can avoid the problem by either avoiding nesting, which I really like, or use mxf files. I'll upgrade to Vegas 10 when the time comes.

Thanks.

Vegas Pro 8.1 had/has a LOT of problems. It's based on 8.0b so any fixes made in 8.0c did not make it to the 64-bit version. I couldn't even to a print to tape with 8.1. As soon as I installed 9.0 64-bit, all worked as I expected again.

Whether or not your particular issue is related to 8.1, I don't know for sure. However, I do advise that you get off of it soon to a more reliable version. 64-bit really didn't come to fruition until 9.0 - in my opinion.

Thanks Ed. I was reasonably happy running V8 and didn't have plans for upgrading my PC either. My PC then died, I got a new one, which led me to going with 64-bit and installing 8.1. I regret not upgrading to 9 when I had the Sony upgrade opportunity. I'll wait for 10 unless I can find a fire sale on a new v9 and then go to 10.
