I've just installed the new vegas 16 and openened the project that I am working on with 2 4k MP4 (from GH4/5) tracks in a 1080 project with it.
It seems that the preview playback of the timeline is less stable than it is in Vegas 15, when I set the video settings the same way I had them in Vegas 15:
Dynamic RAM preview max: 4096 (max available is 31676)
Number of rendering threads: 16
GPU acceleration: OFF
I have experimented with these settings in the past and this is what worked best in my Vegas 15, I've NEVER been able to use GPU acceleration in ANY version of Vegas with ANY videocard I ever purchased. The fact that Sony would not recommend any hardware that is compatible with there software was always very annoying to me. When I did enable the GPU acc. vegas would simply crash while rendering or perform worse in the previewing instead of better.
I have a pretty decent card in my Ryzen 1700 system, a Radeon RX 480
Does anyone have any clues for me to get this working better? Do I need to install something apart from the video card drivers in order to get Vegas to work with my card in the best way possible?
For the GPU acceleration setting I can choose between OFF and 'Advanced Micro Devices Inc Ellesmere' which does not even look like it is my Asus Radeon RX 480 card?
Would GPU acceleration even improve the previewing of the timeline or is it just for faster rendering?
