Every time I rendered a video, it reappears in a different part of the video, I'm not using divx anymore, both Lagerith and huffyyuv shows the same problem.
Any suggestions?

Have you encoded it? Seems like trying to play lossless file and your computer can't keep up.
And if you encoded it, in what?

OK, one more idea - do you actually "input" lagarith/huffy into Vegas?

If not everything should be okay and we might need more info.

No, the stuff you put INTO Vegas - what clips do you edit with?

I suppose you used XviD or DivX avi clips - you are supposed to convert them to lossless using lagarith/huffy, avisynth and virtualdub and then edit with those.

Strange, I've used this clips many times and this never happened before, started to happen recently.

Thanks for the help.

Is there any way to export at higher that 800X600 in the plain version of Vegas 9? You can't type it in under project settings. If you do it automatically changes the values to 800X600. I tried doing it under the template, but it says that the template is invalid.

Section VIII: READ

DO NOT USE XVID/DIVX FILES IN VEGAS VIDEO OR ANY VIDEO EDITING PROGRAM.

You will, in a 99.9% chance, HAVE A PLAYBACK ISSUE. So, instead, either re-encode the file in something over that xvid/divx or NOT USE THE FILE AT ALL.

:)


Please tell me a good format then? mpg and mp4 don't run properly. I have a 1TB Hard Drive with only 100 gigs left so I'm trying to save space.

Clear space, get new HDD or subclip carefully. Filemounting is also an option.
You should ALWAYS edit with lossless files.

I have a question. below you will see an image, which shows the video timeline and footage timeline(i dont use trimmer or use seperate clips from virtual dub, for the kind of video i want to do, i just placed 40 mins of footage unto the timeline, then editted the clips, and dragged them to one of the three bars beneath (3 categories of footage)) Now do i have to drag all those clips serperatly to the front? or is there a function which automaticly gets rid of the gaps between 2 clips?
I know ppl will hate me for my way of working haha but this video is something entirely different (overview of an game experience) so i thought of this method)

Thanks in advance !
