"Using Vegas to render (convert) a Flip movie to wmv"
I have Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11. When attempting to convert a Flip movie (not an individual mpg4 but a Flip movie made with the Flip movie maker software), all I can get is audio in the Vegas desktop. Thus, Vegas does not offer the option of rendering the mpg4 to the wmv format.
To clarify...this only occurs with a mpg4 file that has been made into a movie combining individual mpg4 clips within the Flip software. The mpg4 movie plays normally with Windows Media Player 12 and with QuickTime as expected but I need to be able to convert to wmv for Windows Media Player 11 in Windows XP without paying for or downloading questionable CODECs.
I'll also accept suggestions for reliable free or low-cost video conversion apps other than Vegas.

Format Factory does a very decent job of conversion on just about anything thrown at it, from pictures to videos, etc. I would just suggest staying away from the recent release. Older versions are easy to come by.
