Vegas Project failure

I have a project that fails about fours into the render process. I have tried to run the project on several different computers. The project is a combination of video shot on a XH-A1, music files and high resolution JPEGs. I think I have narrowed the problem to a section of the JPEG stills, but more than just one still. I have the properties set to HD 60i and am rendering a HD WMV project. Does Vegas have a problem if a still JPEG is too high of a resolution?

It can if you don't have enough system mem or if your system can't swap mem fast enough.
There is little point in having the files be huge. I do regularly put very large files on my timeline as a matter of laziness, and it does come up and bite me on occasion. It's best to batch them smaller.

Why not try a work around. Either reduce the size of the stills, or save the stills as another file format, png, even an avi. I have had similar problems, one of mine was an embedded veg file, so I had to work around it.

Keep us up to date. The bizzare errors vegas has is crazy.

Vegas Project Failure

Thanks so much for your response. I thought that may be the problem. I have never run into it before. But these stills were provided to me, some are up to 9 meg. I only have 1 gig of RAM but a duo core processor. Could you please explain how I would batch process these stills to a lower resolution?

Vegas Project Faiure

Thanks Stephen. I also have a embedded veg. file. I discounted that becaused that is not were the project fails. I tried to render out a loop region with the still JPEGS that did not include the embedded veg. and it still failed. Maybe I should not have ruled it out based on that troubleshooting step. I started running it on a Vista machine so I blamed it on that at first but since than I have tried it on a couple of XP machine several times same result.

Photoshop
Irfanview
PhotoImpact

all offer batch converters to take a folder of files and reduce their size.
