Auxilliary Files Suggestion
Make sure Studio's auxilliary files for the project are deleted before attempting to render the project again.
Still have the problem?
Compare your render times with and without minimal rendering turned off. If it's off, it should take two to four times longer to render the portions of your movie that have MPEG input files. If it doesn't, it means one of four things:
1) You made a mistake when making the registry change. Double check the instructions and your registry.
2) Studio was already doing a full render. (See tips for the "faint of heart", below.)
3) You have no MPEG inputs and/or no MPEG outputs.
4) Something else is causing your problem.
If 2, 3, or 4 apply -- the registry change alone won't be enough to help you. You'll also have to determine what your other problems are. TIP -- If you made the registry change in an attempt to fix jerky/stuttering video and/or garbled audio, and you still have that problem, check the audio setting in the Make Movie step. PCM (the default) has been known to cause this problem. Try switching to Dolby Digital. If you don't have that option, you can try MPA (MPEG-1 Layer 2), but be advised, NTSC standards do not require DVD manufacturers to support MPA. Many do, but it could burn you if you plan to distribute/share your DVDs.
If you do any Studio updates or a full reinstall, the update or reinstall process may turn MPEG Minimal Rendering back on. If you still want it off, check the registry and turn it back off if needed.
Options for the "faint of heart"
There are a variety of ways to "force" Studio to do a full render without making the registry change. The primary advantage of the registry approach is you only have to make the change once and it will affect all your projects. i.e. Set it and forget it. Other approaches have to be repeated for every project. Here are two ways you can turn off minimal rendering on a project by project basis.
1. Set your "Capture" bitrate higher than your "Make Movie" render bitrate. (e.g. Capture at 6,000, render at 5,000.)
Note: If the difference between the capture and render bitrates is too small, Studio will still use minimal rendering. In my testing with Studio 9, a difference of 100 was not enough -- a difference of 1000 was. I haven't played with the differences in between, but chances are you can go with less than 1000. Play with it and see what happens.
2. Insert a blank/empty title that covers the full length of your movie. (Courtesy of BittMann!) Signature:
