For those who said Vegas19 is not optimized

With a intel Q6600 (a 2007 CPU), 4Gb of RAM and a Radeon RX460 2G, windows 10.

Playing in real time in the Preview Window best quality (Total) a 1920X1080X32 video with color correction and 2 GPU acelerated filters with a maximun CPU charge 50%. Not a frame drop. Obiously all the work is done by the GPU, but let me tell you that Davinci Resolve uses a SQL database that install in your system and, in my case, draw nearly my 40% of my CPU power just to run.

I want the users to get the whole picture of this, because some people are posting problems with 4K rare codecs and configuration problems in their systems and some newbies are getting a terrible impresion of this EXCELENT piece of sotware.

So do not get confused by some "users" that, instead of using like all of us, videos of their phones, cameras, normal resolutions etc.. are, strangely, using always rare codecs, rare source videos and configurations that always gives them problems that YOU ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE the 99% of the time.

Try vegas in an old computer and compare it with resolve or some bloated adobe software and you will see the level of optimization.

Thanks supergafudo, Well said and so true.... Its draining have to wade through all the negative comments trying to explain why they are having certain issues and letting it be known that that is not normal behavior for Vegas Pro at all..... But what ya gonna do!

+1. V19 is NOTICEABLY faster than V16. Good job!

It's great to hear VP19 has been optimized to run more smoothly. Definitely, a welcome addition. I may have to check it out sooner, rather than later.

I have to second the first post. I have a 2013 vintage Yoga 13 with a 2.5ghz i7 and older Intel HD4000 graphics. I use it to edit when I am mobile and the whole reason I switched to Vegas was that Avid (which I've been using for 22 years) and Premiere Pro CC was dog slow on smaller laptops. Vegas continues to impress in this regard. V19 is faster than previous versions though I had to jump through a couple of hoops to get it to recognize my cpu in 18 or 19. I shoot exclusively 150+mbs intra 1080P 24fps h.264 footage and Vegas plays back all timeline footage and renders with ease. Resolve, Avid and Premiere are excellent platforms but you need a massive amount of computer horsepower to make them compete with the speed of Vegas. I haven't jumped on the insanely compressed 4k band wagon so can't comment there.

@supergafudo, you don't know how badly I needed to read this today. Thank you so much.

you might not get the same results using a more modern codec or higher bitrates, such as 10-bit HEVC. What exactly was the source material you used? (codec, details)

I have to agree! Once I disabled resampling in the project and changed Dynamic RAM Preview to 0, I can now smoothly preview and edit at full resolution without the glitches that I have always had (using Vegas since v16) least at 1920x1080. I just upgraded to an iPhone 12 Pro Max, so I'll have to try 4K at 10-bit next! 😀
