    Every time i render this one project in Vegas Pro 12 as an .avi with Sony's YUV Codec, the rendered file comes out as 400 GB.
    What is this and how do i fix it?

    Well why are you rendering in YUV codec? The YUV codec is Lossy and it is going to churn out a huge file. You can compress the file with Handbrake.

    You have to render the file differently. Find a Youtube video that teaches you how to render files. I usually just render mine as something under the "internet video" setting. The way you are rendering it is not compressing it.

    Render it as a .mp4 file.

    If not, wrap it in MKV.

    H265 MKV/MP4 will render the best quality for the smallest size, but might take a while.
    FLV will render meh quality at the best size.
    If you have windows download "Format Factory".

    If you need just regular .MP4 render under MainConcept MP4. I'm basing off Vegas 14 so it might say something else. Also turn down to project resolution to 720P or 420P if you can.
