Hello everyone.This is really urgent because its for a school assignment, but I finished making my video which is 10 minutes long.
I hit the rendering button but it says system low etc.
I'm not good with computers so I don't know if RAM 2GB is enough for sony. I've been up all night looking for solutions and I've tried almost everything and it hasn't worked.
I even tried cutting the video into small segments, as small as 1-2 minutes, but it still says system low.
Alternatively, maybe its about the files I used. Since its a group project with different voice recordings and clips, there are numerous different files e.g, wmv, mov, m4a... Although I noticed one thing. Whenever I dragged a clip onto the timeline, a notification will come up saying audio proxy file. I didn't think much of it and pressed ok and the video worked fine though. All the clips are from a canon camera.
The only method to render it is only rendering the audio which isn't much help.
Please help and thank you if you do!

Do you have the Windows virtual memory pagefile enabled? Try enlarging it.
From Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings -> Advanced (tab) -> Performance (box) -> Settings -> Advanced (tab) -> Virtual Memory (box) -> Change...
Is your project set properly for video? Go to "Properties" in the "File" menu.
Vegas uses the project properties to determine which render templates match your project. It only offers you audio because your project is set up as audio, apparently.
Decide what you want the output to be, in the project properties, and it will offer you matching render options. Alternately, you can uncheck "Match Project" in the "Render As" box, and it will show them all to you.
AFA "System Resources Low", save the project and reboot the computer. Then don't run anything but Vegas. If it still doesn't work, your computer is not up to the task.
Or download a different NLE Trial, like Corel or something more simpler than Vegas. Or maybe WinMovMaker? There's a free app called "Mephisto" for Android and iPhone. That one is super slow but easy.
Or you can DropBox me the files and I'll do it for you for a million-billion-dollars. I'll stay up all night. Your own personal editor. Guarantee you'll get an A+.

Render it in 2 halves (in uncompressed) and then in a separate project concatenate & render final compressed. Or try 3 thirds or 4 fourths, etc. Though I suggest you render a complete timeline separately of just the audio (no glitches that way).
That's still a valid troubleshooting strategy, and one that sometimes people forget.
I almost considered your proposal there. Though I'd do anything to fix this dreading situation now.
I found a semi-solution (?). I used bandicam and it work for a quarter of my work, but as I continued playing, my effects will crash and stop working. It seems as though the more i try, the more sony hates me.
if you're in school take your project in to the lab and use a more powerful computer.--

Do you want me to google it for him and list solution? I simply do not know exact error, what it says.
I want him to help, not guess solutions, especialy after there was already suggested something before, if you google low memory error you'd find plenty of threads that folks guess for solutions (Vegas does not render, crashing, low memory, etc.) only to somebody breaking the party saying it is a bug a pointing to possible remedy.
