Rendering!

Post by AlexKrycek »

Beginning to wish I never upgraded to VS X20.

Ok. So I'm trying to render a project that contains video files which are a combination of MTS and MP3, and then photos which are all JPEG. As a complete novice I had to Google MTS! I am assuming I must have taken my Sony on holiday in 2013.

So, now with the project complete, I have tried various ways to render without success. The project settings are AVCHD which I think is ideal as I am rendering to DVD. I've tried rendering direct to Blu-Ray and also trying to save a file.

I've turned off smart proxy and all acceleration options. Program recently installed on a fresh Windows installation.

As a diagnostic start,
1. does the project play right thru in edit/preview without errors?
2. if the vsp plays OK, try rendering to ordinary DVD: using same as project properties and save as an iso file to avoid creating drink coasters. Play the iso file result using VLC to check.
3. If that works, then something in your AVCHD disk definition is causing some grief. At the render progress point where the error occurs, try to identify the clip (eg x% or yysec from start) in your project which may be causing the problem. Try adjusting some of the disk parameters to avoid issues with that clip (maybe even copy the vsp and temporarily delete that problem clip from the file, and re-try step 2)

If you can identify a clip which won't render in AVCHD but will render with DVD, then post the details here so the forum geeks can look it over.

Not much useful info in your post.
What are your trying to create: a DVD, a BlueRay or what? Exactly what happens? What doe "without success" mean? do you get any error messages?
Also, there is no point in rendering to AVCHD if you are trying to create a DVD since that requires the mpg format

Please give some details on what you are doing.

Thank you DavidK and Canuck for your replies. Apologies for the lack of detail. Thankfully I have now managed to sort this...by chance! I have now been able to create a BluRay.

I did try and play the project through to the end but at different %'s it simply crashed VS. Indeed, whilst I was simply trying to edit the project it kept freezing then crashing. I then tried to save the project by changing the profile of the project to a DVD file then just a file to use on my PC - no joy.

Eventually I decided to change the MTS files to MP4. At first I had no idea what an MTS file was! This did the trick. VS was noticeably quicker and it rendered!

Thank you again. Ive not used my VS for a while so Im just getting back in to it.

Lately I run all clips that cause pain through a ffmpeg conversion
ffmpeg -i <filename> -scale=1920:1080 -y <filename_1920>
this resolves a lot of pain : note may distort/stretch if your source is not aspect ratio correct
