Render to AVI files

Hello everyone. I am using Vegas 5.0. I want to render to AVI, I have about an hour and 10 minutes worth here. When I render it, it outputs to four separate AVI files that are around 4 GB each. Is there any way to tell it to save it to one file only?
Thanks!

Yes. Format your hard drive as NTFS instead of FAT32. FAT32 has a 4 Gig file size limit.

As soon as I posted, it popped in to my head that that was probably the reason. Thanks!

Perhaps do a re-install of Vegas to make sure it has all the proper
components installed?

We cannot answer your question. Best for what? Framerate has
nothing to do with your NLE but the camera you used and at what
framerate it shot your footage. "Best" is a very subjective term
and what I find best might not be best for you. You are going to
have to do a lot more explaining what you are looking for....

In the end experimenting with settings and seeing what that does
to the look of your footage is usually far more helpfull as well
then simply using settings that someone else gives you. Ofcourse
there a few basic settings, but those should be pretty obvious.

Please take a look into our "Towards a Film Look using DV" forum.
It has lengthy threads on this very topic. There aren't any easy
setting etc. to get a "film look". The XL1S is a nice camera and
most people seem to agree that switching it to frame mode (make
sure your Vegas project settings are set to progressive) helps in
giving the "film look". Besides that it comes down to:

- having a good story
- actors
- lighting
- audio (recording/mixing)
- composition (camera movement etc.)
- editing

And then some other stuff like color correction and so forth.

In vegas you choose "NTSC DV" as the project template for the
JVC. You do the same for the XL1S, but change the interlaced
setting from bottom field to none (progressive) when shooting
in frame mode.

well...wat i ended up doing was just going thru the whole wedding and watching my audio levels and adjusting manually. I was up in a balcony and the organ was blasting - but of course the pastor and bride/groom where all the way across the chapel w/no mic, etc.

i just made sure i wasnt going over -12 ever and tried to average it out as best i could for all the speakers. seems pretty decent when viewed on average tv off of DVD.

Whoever told you -12 was "DV legal" was in error. Check this out:

As far as I know, the manual is English only.
