In today's Sony Vegas Zen Tip #15, I go through my checklist for speeding up rendering times in Sony Vegas Pro and Movie Studio Platinum.

There are three main factors that can affect your rendering times and they are:
1. Your Computer’s Hardware
2. Your Windows Settings
3. Sony Vegas or Movie Studio Settings

the rest of this article will be uploaded very soon....

    High Derek, I am back from Holiday and I have produced a holiday movie for my relations to take back to Europe. I have followed your advice in this tutorial, but the rendering speed is not as good as expected. I use the Sony AVC encoder to produce an MP4 1080 50P clip. I tried both the bottom two settings: Intel quick Sync Video (quality) and (speed), but get a message that these are not available. CUDO is however available. 60 minutes of video is taking 88 minutes to render - is this normal?
    I thougtht that I have a decent fast system. These are the specs: Intel Core i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHZ
    16.0 GB of Ram
    AMD Radeon R9 200 series
    Primary hard disk (C:) 238GB Solid State
    Win 7, 64 bit

    Am I missing something here?

      Hi Hans
      Sorry for the delay in answering your question. I have been ill for many weeks and needed to take time off to recover.
      Your rendering times sound pretty good to me and I would not be worried at all. 1080-50p video does take quite some time to render.

        Hi Derek,

        Thanks for your reply, damn annoying to be ill for such a long time! Today I have been in hospital myself to have my "water works" fixed. For the next couple of weeks I need to wear a catheter which will be removed at that time.
        Pleased to hear my rendering times are good. My visitors have returned to the Netherlands with a movie of their trip. This went quite well. I followed your advice and used signboards at each place we visited and this went well also.

        I am contemplating changing over from Win 7(64bit) to Win 10 (64bit). Are there any "gotchas" to be aware off when doing this? I thought someone in our Forums had written advice about this, but I can't find it back..........

    Super job on this Tutorial Derek. I want to add just a brief footnote about "Rendering with GPU (graphics card)": I've had some sad experiences trying to use the GPU to render video projects (pull your hair out kind of stuff). It wasn't that it didn't work at all, but that the final product ended up with some strange artifacts at random places in the video. To be safe, I just leave the render option set for "CPU Only"! It may be slower, but much less chance of having to do re-renders. I think you alluded to this in this Tutorial, but I wanted to reinforce this with my 2 pence worth!

      Artifacts in video can sometimes indicate that your Graphics Driver is out of date, so make sure you have the latest build version install.
