Bugs in build 142 (long app load time, improper app shutdown)

EarthGuest wrote on 8/11/2019, 3:11 PM


When I close vegas, moviestudioplatinum160.exe is still present in the "ctrl+alt+delete->processes tab"

When I reopen the app, it makes a new (duplicate) process... and starts sucking away at my ram...

I can repeat this closing/reopening of vegas and it will pile up new processes in my taskbar...


It seems that

1) Vegas is not shutting down properly - Creates endles processes in task manager (depending on how many times you open/close the program)

2) When booting , the program takes too long a time while "creating windows " (last step of vegas startup script)



(notice in the clip that the whole program loads in under 5 seconds... then is stuck on "creating windows" for too long a time...)

These are known issues.

Hello Marco, I am also encountering issue 2... If it's a known issue, is there a solution?

EarthGuest , in your video it took ~46sec to "create the windows" does this is right after you boot your system or is it during the day?

On my system it take ~6sec after boot.

@FayFen do you have (m)any "extra 3rd party Video FX installed like NewBlueFX, BorisFX, etc..."? (ref. here post #2)

Hey all=)

Only got to write to you now because ... of.. reasons... valid reasons. =)


The only plugs I have are the ones that come packaged with platinum suite 16...

FF - This "creating windows" happens right after boot or at any time.

The only time it jumped right in without delay was when I first re-installed the program.

The first start after install was snappy as it should be at all times...


VK - The only other plugin I have installed is titler pro 6...

- I cannot access my gear at this time, but I have a nice new smexy Titler pro 7 here (yay)

(I cannot install yet because I cannot access my gear) - but I will see how Vegas starts up after I have installed it and keep you guys posted=)..


Thanks again everyone=)

After installing Titler Pro7 -> Vegas is crashing on boot... (during the creating windows process)

The only way to get vegas to start is to use the ctrl+shift+click reset-toggle when starting the program... Then it will start correctly. - but - after closing the program, it will give the the "send crash report? pop-up again and will not start...

I need to click with ctrl+shift everytime the program starts..(hence losing all settings every start up.. lol)

(sent a report via crash-pop-up to Magix - the pop-up says it has to do with ntdll.dll )

Anybody else experience something like that before?


Thanks and have a wonderful weekend=)

Just checking, were you able to place the checkmark and clear the cache when you reset?

Yes, sir.
