Can anyone help with solutions to these constant 'not responding' notices that I am getting with simple editing features on Vegas Pro 17? GPU is set to 0. What should maximum rendering threads be set to? I use a GeForce GTX 1660 i9 machine. This really is getting ridiculous.
Fred...I don't mean to be overly negative but in hindsight I wish I had started years ago with Final Cut Pro. I have been just too lazy at my age to learn a whole new editing system again. I just may have to switch after all.
Make sure your cache folder is clean by deleting everything in C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\VEGAS Pro\<version #> (delete everything with VP closed and use task manager to make sure it's really gone from memory). The initial startup will be kind of long after this cleaning but once it's up, restart VP again. Use task manager to make sure VP is completely gone from memory before starting it back up.

You can either stop being a dick to people trying to help you, or you can leave. If you are not willing to do the few things we've asked of you in order to be able to diagnose your problem, there is nothing we can do for you. You obviously haven't "been there", or you would have read where it requests that you post certain info with your help requests so we can know how to diagnose your problem.
You could have corrupt media, operating system corruption, driver conflicts, or a number of other external sources that could be causing issues with VEGAS, we need to rule those things out before we can start telling you what you can do inside of VEGAS to solve your issue.
To do that, we need to know your full system specs (CPU, GPU, RAM, Windows Version, GPU Driver version), a mediainfo report of the media on your timeline (one report per media type), get mediainfo here, as well as the project settings of your VEGAS project, and your settings in the video and file i/o tabs of VEGAS preferences.
Video= Video 1, DJI Drone Video is MP4, Format=AVC, 2704x1520x12 29.970fps
VIDEO PREFERENCES SETTINGS are: DRAM=0, Rendering Threads=32, GPU Accelaeration is OFF, Preview Device is Windows Graphics Card, display adaptor is 1920x1080 (60)
Note: I have adjusted the above video Preferences settings every which way that you can imagine... and then some. The above machine is 6 months old.
I started with Vegas 8 many years ago, then 12 and now 17. Always the same issue and sometimes others. The current and immediate issue is system crashing when doing very simple tasks. I've had many issues with the rendering process in the past over different machines and versions of Vegas. Why have I stuck with Vegas? good question...I chalk it up to my laziness in needing to start a steep learning curve all over again. Maybe Vegas runs perfectly with experts like yourself.
I'm not an expert but a long time editor for pleasure and hobby. Look at the specs for my desktop in my signature, nearly the same as yours but newer drivers I think. I edit and render FHD 50p, 4K Hevc 50p from GoPro and 4K 50p AVC from DJI Pocket without problems.
I haven't had freezes with the latest NVIDIA studio drivers with GPU preview on (so far) and the latest VP 17 build. Something seems to have changed for the better. I also did the clean install of NVIDIA first.
