Looks like they were busy fixing things. Installed 670 ok but I don't use about 99% of all that stuff.

Is that a misprint? Did they mean Nvidia?

@ jd - i'm running latest intel with no problems. don't think intel's quite as bad as either nvidia or amd regarding screwing up working installations with updates, though ymmv ;-(
videoITguy wrote on 7/24/2013, 12:51 AM
See above narrative - what is the implication of "ushere's" query several posts above the just previous one in the scheme of things developing....

Fairly low key response to the new build - does that mean almost everyone's happy?

- be interesting to hear from someone for whom this build has solved a problem ...

I've had no specific problems with V12 - occasional white screen lock-ups, not traceable to a common cause, but generally ok for me.
ushere wrote on 7/24/2013, 6:49 AM
as per peter - 12 seems respectably well behaved for what i'm mostly working on. have install latest on one pc and am trying to judge (very inaccurately) any noticeable differences.

Added an Optimize GPU display performance check box to the Video Preview tab in the Preferences dialog when Windows Graphics Card is selected in the Device drop-down list. We recommend leaving this check box selected.

what exactly does this do? and is the final sentence an alternative to turning gpu off ;-)
FilmingPhotoGuy wrote on 7/24/2013, 7:58 AM
Awesome! They fixed it where the most left position of the key would display the last frame of the previous event. [I really hated that]

Improved the Color Match plug-in to prevent an issue that could cause .veg file sizes to grow significantly........will be using it now that it is fixed.

They also improved the Color Match UI, looks great!

"what exactly does this do? and is the final sentence an alternative to turning gpu off ;-)"

When Optimize is checked the CPU/GPU usage on my machine is 41%/15%.

When unchecked it is 35%/45%.

So obviously this setting sends more of the number-crunching work to the GPU and less to the CPU.

For those who still render to MPEG-2, the color issue http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/forums/ShowMessage.asp?ForumID=4&MessageID=862011 has been fixed.

Cineform files still do not smart-render, although the use of the V10 aviplug.dll still works.

I wish they would have fixed the problem with OpenType fonts with postscript outlines in the Titles and Text plug-in. I reported it a couple of builds ago and SCS said it was a known problem.

The legacy text, protype and NewBlue Titler all work fine.

The next update will probably be Vegas 13.

I hope they do the beta thing again. I would like to be a part of that.

This all very good. Thank you.

We still need usb 3, 3 TB HD wav support. These files will not play on these drives. It is a vegas problem. Please fix.
JJKizak wrote on 7/24/2013, 2:43 PM
It's a wonderment to me why Vegas files would not play on a 3 t USB drive. What am I missing here?
JJK
Lovelight wrote on 7/24/2013, 4:27 PM
It is only wav files that do not play. A very strange thing, indeed. It has been confirmed by others, but we are few. All other players play wav files off of 3tb, usb 3 drives. I don't know if it is the 3 tb, the usb 3, or a combination of it all, but these are my new drives unable to play wav file in V12.
DavidMcKnight wrote on 7/24/2013, 5:05 PM
Specifically 24-bit WAV files on very large USB 3 drives.

Yes, it's weird but documented and acknowledged.

Just installed Build 670 on a Dell XPS8000 8gig Core i7 860 box for testing. Will put it on the actual editor box here if all seems well (i7 six-core 980X 24GB).

Imported a .wav file of production music from a Seagate 4TB USB3 external drive.
Played fine. Don't know what to say. If a 4TB drive works, why not a 3TB?

What are the properties of your audio file? Sample rate and bitrate, etc?
Peter Riding wrote on 7/24/2013, 5:41 PM
I've been editing using 3tb USB3 Seagate drives for over a year without any issues with 16/48 WAV files from 3 different Zoom H1 recorders plus sundry royalty free music which is also 16/48. Probably around 50 multicam projects varying from 30 mins to 2 hours each. Always DVD and MP4 out the other end.

Windows 8, always the latest edition of Vegas Pro, i7, 12gb ram blah blah blah.

The one thing I did give up on long ago is GPU acceleration. Nvidia GTX570. Made a difference at first now its just a problem :- (

I think the problem with the 570 is Windows 8 and the driver for it.
