VP17 user here. I've finally got a computer powerful enough to render videos with 24 bit audio and 60fps, etc visuals.
I'm mostly uploading to YT, etc. I've only found the "Video for Windows" setting capable so far of creating an avi file with 24 bit audio, which I can upload to my YT channel easily. Since I have an intel computer I assumed that using the "Intel YUV codec" was the best, but the file sizes are huge and sometimes these videos won't play in my Media Viewer (or they will hit an error screen halfway through). Usually the videos in this format upload to YT fine, but they take a REALLY long time to load. I'm talking like 6-8 hours for a 2+ minute video!
What are the popular codecs and rendering formats with the pros out there? I've got one of the Asus Zenbook Pro Duo with the 8GB NVidia GPU etc.
P.S. Totally would upgrade to VP20 now that I have a little money, but earlier this summer Magix stopped sending me those enticing offers when the program starts up. I guess VP17 is considered ancientware now . . . I've haven't received any email offers for an upgrade since last Spring, but Magix keeps trying to push Movie Studio on me.
