Rendering Goes Black?

For help and discussion concerning the Sony Vegas software.

Rendering Goes Black?

Postby noeylani94 » Tue Jul 06, 2010 6:01 pm

So, I have my footage and everything and I'm all set, I say "Woop dee doo! I finally finished". Then I got to render my project, and low and behold, part of my AMV doesn't render. The rest of my footage renders except for this part, it just goes black for about 10 seconds and continues on after the black part perfectly fine.

Please help!
Thanks in advance.

Personally what I do is right click the clips that are doing that in your project, go to Properties, then click Disable Resampling. Make sure your clips are still lined up like you want them. Then try to re-render your project again. I dont know whether this is the best solution, but it works for me.

.. possibility of Non-Supported Codec on "that portion" of the video clip.

Way to check:
1) play the clip through VLC Player.
2) play the clip through Media Player.
... if the clip plays in VLC but not Media Player, then the clip has an "un-supported codec" and needs to
be converted to a RAW FORMAT.

.. I've seen this happen everytime MicroSoft changes its System's.

.. possibility of Non-Supported Codec. :beer:

Actually, you should edit everything converted in one codec, lossless avi is the best for this (if possible)

Agreed - I perfer Direct Editing using the original DVD's as the source however,
not many people know how to used Direct-Edit anymore. yet, I totally agree 8-)

Use RAW footage when ever possible.

Wow, thats happened to me a bunch of times,
What I would do is, since the clips that would go black, for me were .avi files I just converted them into .wmv files which fixed the problem.

.wmv is like totally no, because you lose a lot of quality there! :nono:

.. this might help explain what the differences look-like, a side by side comparison.

yes, that is true however; most people do not use the entire original file -- only a snip here and a section there.

it is rare, unless your doing subbing on a TV Series Episode, that you would use the entire video.

18 to 80 eight or ten second clips are about the most anyone could ever need and, yeah, even that is pretty huge!

The idea of using Huffy is to Preserve the Clips "as clean and clear" as possible UNTIL the final Encoding.

.. and a clean encode after your done editing = Priceless 8-)

Why do you think editors usually have at least 1TB of HDD space (and most of them go over that a lot)? :>

I get this problem too, but differently. when I just have one whole video into Vegas (no editing and usually is an xvid file or an WMV file) and then render it using the ffdshow video encoder (using xvid format), It will get like a 1-5sec black screen in some parts of the video. It's anoying. >_<
I am trying the "Disable Resampling" thing to see if it does the trick. ^^'

You should input lossless avi and output lossless avi as well, that way you shouldn't lose anything - the thing you see in your preview you get in the end.
