Solutions for Sony Vegas Pro WMV Rendering Problems
We usually saw Sony Vegas Pro(9/10/11/12) users encounter issues when attempting to render WMV in Sony Vegas Pro. Let's see some frequently asked questions on this.
Q1: Sony Vegas Pro 11 not rendering .WMV
I recently bought Sony Vegas 11. I want to render my video as a .wmv to make it very compressed, since I'm uploading 20 minutes of video at a time, and do not have very good internet. I was wondering, why can't I render as a .wmv? It is not an option in the render menu. I have .avi and most others. But I must have .wmv. What can I do?
Q2: Sony Vegas Pro 12 WMV Render Problems
After upgrading to Sony Vegas Pro 12, I have been experiencing problems when I render .wmv videos. Just to add, this problem only occurred after I upgraded to Windows 8 Pro. I wonder if it's a coincidence or has it something to do with the problem? Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.
As you see, many folks are complaining the Sony Vegas Pro WMV rendering issues. In fact, two main things that affect rendering time- the compositing of tracks, and the format that you are rendering to. Some people may prefer to WMV format because the colours are a little more muted with this codec. While, WMV video is extremely CPU intensive when rendering. So it takes a lot of juice and time to render this codec out. You will also need a fair amount of RAM (memory) installed if you intend to render full 1080p video with WMV. On lower powered computers with not enough memory, it can just keel over and die halfway through rendering.
Possible Solutions to Sony Vegas Pro WMV Rendering Problems:
The best solution for rendering videos via Vegas Pro is to use project settings and output settings as close to the source settings as possible.
Go into the project settings window and at the top right there's a little folder, when you click it, it says "match media settings." Then you just browse to one of your source clips and select it, and Vegas adopts the media settings of your source clip as the project settings. Secondly, try to choose the output closest to your project settings. One dis-advantage is that it will probably give you a very large file to use.
In this case, Brorsoft Video Converter comes out for you.
