what type of processor do you have? the one in my computer is only a Intel core 2 duo 2.66 GHz with 4GB of RAM, those tend to be the standard now days.

oh alright... But mine does also have a intel core 2 duo but this is only having a 1.83 GHz and 4 GB of RAM. But could you then send me your settings, so I could try it out?

But it takes 45 min. for me to render a 10 min, long video.

But mine does also have a intel core 2 duo but this is only having a 1.83 GHz and 4 GB of RAM.

My PC is AMD Athlon x2 5000+ 2.60 Ghz 6GB RAM and takes about 40-50min to render 10-11min with Sony AVC. So the render time is the same as yours. It depends more on the codec when it comes to rendering, but power is needed too.

my xvid codec configuration is:

Single pass
target bitrate: 3000 kbps
quality preset: "general purpose"


those are the settings I have been using for all my rendering on vegas. The last 70 or so parts of Lost Odyssey and all of Dante's Inferno. It takes about 15 minutes to render an 11 minute video and it looks just fine to me.

umm is this right:

literally 3-4 seconds below 15 minutes for a 411mb video?

something tells me this is wrong! (followed all your settings + it took 1hr 15min to render on a 2 year old computer which isnt that bad!)

That's normal. The file size depends on the game graphics, resolution and render settings. Lower graphics will produce smaller files because there's nothing fancy and better graphics will produce larger files because there's all those eye catching graphics; bigger resolution = bigger files and smaller = smaller files; higher bit-rate = bigger files, lower bit-rate = smaller files.

Actually, the resolution will not affect the file size all that much, if at all.

The bitrate is what determines your file size. The resolution simply determines how much space with which to pack all of your video data. Higher resolution means you have more room to spread your video data, smaller means less room. Ideally, you want your resolution to match the source input, so as not to distort the image data when you compress it.

Is the bitrate affected by the game?

Because a good-graphics game is a 3mins long fraps file while a bad-graphics game is able to fit 8 mins of footage in?

Well, the bit rate is something you specify, but the resulting file size can certainly be affected. It's basically what xIntenso said. If there is a lot of motion going on then the encoder needs to push the available bit rate to the max to compensate, and the opposite occurs if there's less motion. You can see this effect by rendering just a black screen; even if it's 15 minutes long and you set it to 10 Mbps it comes out to be only a few KB. I've also seen plenty of occasions where emulator footage (especially of older consoles) comes out to be about half as big as console capture at the same settings.

Anyone have recommended settings for 1080i rendering? Im not sure if its even worth it uploading vids in 1080i im guessing its not since not alot of people would watch it at that resolution but i want to check and see if the filesize is alot bigger cuz if its not then might aswell upload at 1080i.
