I had a 9 minutes video, rendered it in SONY Vegas pro 10, rendered in both mp4 and wmv, so when its done it cuts the last 4 minutes of the video, so now it is just a 5 minutes video.

I recorded in 1080i i guess, and i will change that to 720p next time, so mabye it has to do with that?

I use the Happauge HD PVR.

Is it speeded up? Or about half of it just gone?

One thing that helped me before, was to start the render at 00:00:00:03 example. So the three first milliseconds are taken away (can't be that much important there?) and it may work. If not, try either download a codec pack (unless you have one), and/or reinstall the program.

Resolution really shouldn't matter..

And, oh, are you sure you marked ALL the video? Just having it in the timeline don't mean it's gonna get rendered.

I dunno if Sony Vegas has a "work area bar" like Adobe but from what I remember, isn't there a blue bar on the top of the time line that determines how much of the video you render? If you have that shorter than your video, then have it selected in the Render menu to render what's under that bar it will only render what's under that bar, which is what's used for batch encoding.

yea it just got cut in half. I also had commentry on the video when it went half after rendering, but now that i took away the audio-file (commentry) it went out great.

I will try what you said and thank you for the help :)

I've uploaded my first video! Let me know what you think. Is the quality good?

If you want commentary included, you could try to merge it with game-audio. Do that  first in Sony Vegas, and render as .mp3, then render video.
