I second this request. It would be a huge timesaver to render right from timeline vs going into another encoder.

i'm assuming you're talking about rendering to AVI & then rendering in the 3gp encoder?

Have you tried frameserving to the encoder? It wouldn't waste the time of rendering & encoding, you'd just encode.

look for the debugmode frameserver.

Sorry, I don't have an answer for you but I am curious. How did the audio get encoded? Are you pulling this off of a GSM cellular stream?

Nope. I'm talking about .avi and all formats being able to render as 3gp WITHIN VEGAS. Albeit mobile a/v isn't as exciting as film editing/rec groups/tv&film music, etc. but mobile media is here now and I've seen a rise in requests. I would think an excellent a/v app like vegas would incorporate being able to render/cvt to 3gp (one of the more popular mobile formats) by now.

I currently have to use Quicktime (uugh) to export one by one to 3gp/3gpp, but the output leaves more to be desired and is somewhat limited in settings. I hear Xilisoft is slightly better but pretty much the same as QT (ok, but limited, quality is about the same).
I would LOVE to keep my workflow within Vegas, and with mobile media booming (yet still in it's infancy), I'm hoping this will be a consideration and the format addition can be made.

Any chance we will see the addition of 3gp rendering Sony? I'm pretty sure Adobe Premiere allows 3gp rendering, I'd like to not have to switch back to using it.
