When working with the Sony Vegas Pro 13 video editor, a number of users may encounter difficulties. The “Save As” option, familiar to many, writes a user project to disk. We need a ready-to-use video file that can be posted on YouTube, on social networks and so on. After a long work in the Sony Vegas Pro 13 program, I learned to save a video, and today I will describe the sequence of actions to solve this problem.
Features download movie in Sony Vegas Pro 13
Before you complete the sequence of steps to download your video clip, I recommend that you finalize your project. To do this, you must:
- Go to “File” – “Properties” (or just press “Alt” + “Enter”).
To configure your video, select "File" – "Properties"
Select “Save As” to save the file to disk.
Saving video in Sony Vegas Pro 13
When uploading your video, it’s worth deciding whether you will save the entire video or only its segment. There are three ways to do this:
- set markers at the start and end points of your video;
- select the desired segment by holding the left mouse button;
- double-click on a free field on the timeline to select the entire movie.
Then select “File” at the top – “Render as”. In the window that opens, decide on the directory for saving our video (Folder), and enter a name for our file (Name). Below is a list of templates in which we can save our file. Popular and convenient is “MainConcept AVC / AAC (mp4, avc)”, click on the arrow to the right of it and select “Internet HD 1080p” (or a more moderate alternative to “Internet HD 720p”).
If you wish, you can edit this template by selecting it and then clicking on the “Customize template” button below (customize the template). In particular, in the opened customization menu on the Video tab, you can choose either a constant bitrate (for example, a value of 14,000,000 bps) or a variable (average value of 10,000,000, maximum – 16,000,000). In the option “Encoding mode” you can speed up the encoding process using the OpenCL or CUDA technologies (to check their availability on your PC, go to the “System” tab and click on the “Check GPU” button).
By switching to the "Audio" tab, you can change the bitrate from 192,000 to a higher value. After that, close the template customization window.
If you want to render not the entire video, but the selected segment, then check the "Render loop region only" option (otherwise uncheck it). Then click on the "Render" button below and wait for the rendering procedure to finish. Depending on the specifics of your file and the selected compression template, this may take some time. After that, the received file will be placed in the directory you selected.
To save the video in the Sony Vegas Pro 13 program, you need to go to the "File" menu, use the "Visualize As" option. Then you should select the desired save template and go through the further rendering procedure. You can also try to search for the most convenient template for your video, for which you will need to mark the short section of the clip with sliders, and then save it using various templates. This will allow you to choose the most optimal of them, and later use it to solve similar problems.
