Hi from Portugal,

Sorry for my bad ingles.

I´m traing to do a music clip with fast images. I shoot a 15m clip with car´s and i´m traing to fastfoword the playback rate.
I did 2 ting´s, first i move the "green bar" (velocity) to top, and in the proprieties bar and change the playback rate from 1.000 to the max -> 4.000. I´ts good, but i whated faster, so i rendered to max quality (pure avi), and did the same thing.
Finily i have the result i whant. The only problem is that i have to do 2 renders, i dont liked because i´m losing quality, even whit pure avi.

Is there a way of doing this whitout doing 2 renders?

Sorry the terrible ingles :(

The most you can speed up a clip in a single render in Vegas is 12x.

It seems you have already moved the velocity "envelope" (green bar) to max, which is 3 times and the playback rate to 4x, so that is the most you can do.

If you want to do genuine time-laspe photographer (where hours of video can be shown within seconds) then you have try another tool. Sceneanalyzer is a capture tool that you can try.

With ScenalyzerLive you can use Time Lapse Capturing to create impressive effects that can be used in your final video.

You might want to take a look at Veggie Toolkit.
One of it's many features is Time Bandit which has the following:
* Timecode Picker control allows mouse scrubbing of the control label to change the end time
* Speed up video beyond the 12x max of Vegas, without multiple renders, to create amazing fast motion effects
* Speed up or slow down multiple video and/or audio events by selecting the time range and a new end time
* Use markers, regions, current selection, etc. to define the starting time range
* Preserves velocity key frame relationships when adjusting speed
It's $80 U.S. to buy and there is a trial version available.
