Problem with 384 notebook drivers from NVidia

Cornico schrieb am 03.08.2017 um 19:45 Uhr

Since half of july I saw a problem using FX in al my Vegas versions.
After applying a FX there was no change in my preview.
But after closing the FX Window suddenly the effect appears in preview.
For me strange behaviour.

Installed was/were 384.76-notebook-win10-64bit-international-whql and to see if there was a fix later the 384.94-notebook-win10-64bit-international-whql.

Both had that strange behaviour.
Installing the older 381.89-notebook-win10-64bit-international-whql restored everything.
Am I the only one?

I've seen the same behavior when I set the GPU to Nvidia. I haven't gone to the trouble of downgrading the driver because I've found that if I set the GPU to my other chipset, Intel, that the previews work fine when editing titles or fx

Cornico did update his findings later e.g. here.

I have the same issue. Using my 1050 (laptop GPU) and Vegas the titles no longer update in real time. Switch to Intel and it is normal again. Annoying bug.

It is, but there's a reliable workaround (so far, anyway). For Windows 10. Will probably work for 8 and 7 as well but I can't verify.

Open the nvidia control panel (rt-click on desktop) and under Manage 3D Settings | Program Settings find Movie Studio in the list or add it if it's not there. Choose "Integrated Graphics" in the preferred graphics processor dropdown. Save.

Open MS and choose the Nvidia GPU in the Video tab in preferences.

Now you should see that the titles/fx/etc update in real time.

But also...

When you render, it will use the nvidia gpu. You can verify this by opening the Task manager and watching the GPU Engine column (enable it if it's not there) and you'll see GPU 1 show up when you render.

Hi Michael, thank you for your message. I'm on Windows 10 and Vegas Pro 15. I just tried to do this and it seems to move Vegas to the Intel GPU for timeline playback as well. The Intel playback performance isn't as good as NVIDIA though.

I think keeping the driver set to NVIDIA and then switching Vegas internally to Intel for editing titles and fx only might be a better bet for me. It's hard to edit when you have low playback framerates.

That's interesting. I understood that Vegas Movie Studio and Vegas Pro used a common codebase but either that's not the case between our versions (I've got MS 14) or our different hardware is giving us different results.

I'm consistently seeing gpu1 being used with my config.

no matter. at least you have a solution that works for you

Thank you so much Michael, really. Saved me a whole night of searching online
