Q: I am Rendering a Video for a DVD and it is going on for ever and ever and not finishing. What am I doing wrong?
Answer: You probably are not doing anything wrong at all ! There is a small bug that ONLY affects rendering for all the MPEG2 DVD Templates. This bug only affects particular versions of Movie Studio Platinum and Vegas Pro.
The problem is caused by a setting in the Vegas Preferences being made higher than the default value.
Go to Options – Preferences – Video tab
Set the Dynamic RAM Preview back to 200MBs only !
Now go back and try rendering your video again. Everything should work just fine now and you will now see a very quick render.
If you still experience problems after defaulting the Dynamic RAM Preview value, there is another setting you could try changing as well. Try setting GPU Acceleration of Video Processing to OFF.
