Rendering takes too long

Hello everyone,

I've got a problem with DVD Architect. I made a 01:17:00 long project on Vegas Pro and made two renders:

  • Video: Mpeg-2, 25p (PAL), 25Mbits/s (3.3 gb)
  • Audio: Dolby Digital Ac3 (106 mb)

At this point, there is no problem. I opend both of them in DVD Architect and i made a menu, with chapters, etc. The idea was to burn it on a Bluray disc. At this stage, everything is okay.

The problem appeared when i went to render the Dar. project : The rendering takes too long. The first 1% appeared at "6 hours remaining"... the second percent at " 12 hours remaining"... It would take 600 hours to reach 100% !

I dont know how to fix it. The project size is 3.852 mb (3.8 gb) and it takes only 16% space on the BD-R (25GB).


My computer is a new one, i dont think that's the cause of the problem. It's a i7-8750 with 32gb RAM and a Nvidia RTX 2060. I'm using a external burner... but i can't even reach this stage because i have no issues with the rendering.


I really need your help ! Thank you.

You are rendering to a progressive file but you have your project as interlaced. It is re-rendering. Make your project match your source or vice versa.

Thank you for your answer. I understand. But I have to admit that I don't know enough about the software to do it. Can I ask you to explain to me how do i match your source or adapt my project ? I did not find a tutorial or guide on Internet about it. Hope i'm not asking too much.

First, BluRay does not support 25p. You need to render to 50i which is one of the templates in Vegas. Then your video should load into DVDA without a problem. If your original material is 25p, you will not lose any quality rendering to 50i (if you go from 50i to 25p, there is some quality loss). If your original material is 50i, then keep it 50i in the rendering.
