I recently upgraded from Vegas 17 to 19 in hopes that it would solve my woes. It did not
I am a recording artist very familiar with DAWs and audio engineering etc. I have used many types of content creation type softwares and plugins etc etc. I have never worked with something as unstable as VEGAS which crashes EVERYTIME i use it no matter how simple the project.
I do light video edit projects to support some of my work, for serious video edits I hire pros, but I need to do simpler and smaller video edit projects myself.
So my VEGAS projects are relatively simple mostly short music videos like this for a community music project I lead. (www.blissiband.com)
I have NEVER been able to complete one of these short and simple projects without VEGAS crashing multiple times along the way. I will likely bite the bullet this weekend and invest time in learning Divinci, cause the constant crashing is driving me nuts.
This Morning's project had no multi-cam editing, no color correction, nothing fancy I was simpley importing several completed videos to the timeline and moving them around and changing lengths in order to make a demo reel for a presentation later today. Such a simple task VEGAS cant handle without crashing. Every clip in this project was previously rendered with VEGAS ( I have had trouble in the past when importing footage shot on iOS devices), but all the clips in todays crash were made in VEGAS.
Because I get frequent crashes no matter how simple, complex, small or large my VEGAS project is I have no idea how to troubleshoot.
(Last night, for example, seemed safe and maybe crashes got triggered when I opened the display preview on my second monitor ( not sure though), today just moving a clip on a super simple project timeline did it. )
On launching VEGAS 19.0 I get a message that an update is available if I click "update now" it will spend 20 min or so downloading the update, but it does not install it, when I try to install it it goes back downloading it again, so if some asks if I am using the very latest version of VEGAS 19 the answer is no, as it wont install ( I had the same problem with updates to 17 after a certain point this loop started happening where it downloads but wont install the update)
My system specs are copied below- I am hoping for maybe some useful trouble shooting suggestions to try before I jump ship on Vegas and invest time in learning Divinci ( which I dont really have time to do- way to busy to learn a new NLE)
