You're right. I've tried the option and it does render the current loaded project.
I have tried to pull the first of my projects onto the timeline but Vegas crashed immediately. I pulled it from the explorer tab and I'm hoping that this is the correct way of doing it. Is this the correct way to nest projects or has it to be done a different way?
I never use the Explorer bin, I load the project.veg in the Project Media bin like any other clip, then add it to the track. However, I just tried the Explorer and it worked on my system. I'm loading rather small projects, like 5-7 minutes. However long are your projects?
I wrote before when using nested vegs you have to be patient, because after clicking the veg in the explorer first the swap0 file has to be made before you can drag it to the timeline. If you set the thumbnail preferences to "automatic play" you can see when it is ready because it begins to play the veg. Than you can drag the file and the next time the same can be dragged immediately.
Like yours, my projects are short, maximum about 12 minutes.
Thanks also j-v
I note your solution. I admit that I tried to pull the project in immediately. I'll do it the way you described and see what happens. My system is a little outdated so nesting may be a little too much for it.
An update. I haven't been able to pursue this up to now as I've been busy with other things.
I've successfully imported several veg files into the project media bin and have then highlighted them all and dragged them onto the timeline.
This is brilliant, thank you guys. It will allow me to create one big avc file and one big wav file out of all my small projects. I normally have to render each small project separately then use the DOS xcopy command to concatenate the rendered files together for import into DVD Architect. If my system is up to coping with the many small projects I normally create then this will save me a huge amount of time.
