Is anybody familiar with Sony Vegas? Well, If you are smart and know what you're doing I have some questions. First of all I just want to say I know how to edit a video, I know how to render the video at the best possible quality that I need. BUT. I want to know what in your computer makes you able to render videos faster? Right now I do the whole YouTube commentary over game play thing. Madden, COD etc. It takes me around 30 minutes to render out a 5 - 7 minute video. It just seems like a rather long time and I'm sure there are ways to speed it up. My computer specs are not the best by any means so I am wondering what I'd need to upgrade in order to get these videos rendered faster. I would THINK it's the processor that would determine your speed rendering videos and such but I'm not sure. I was thinking of getting myself a laptop for video editing once I figure out what I need. Probably an i7 processor. Here are my current specs. Running Windows 7 Home Premium Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5400 @ 2.70 GHz (2 CPUs) 4 GB of RAM Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset Simplified question: What in your computer is used to render videos? Processor? Graphics card?
