Opening older .veg with V13, causing issues with audio


MikeLV wrote on 5/31/2018, 5:52 PM

I made a copy of the veg project file, and isolated the area that contained the .wav audio. Used the export option to save the project and its media to a folder on an internal hard drive and the .wav audio played perfectly. So bizarre.

EDIT: I just opened up the next project to work on, same external drive, and the .wav audio is fine. This program is going to drive me nuts!

@VolumetricMedia I'm working on another older Vegas project and ran into the audio issue with wav audio on that same drive. So I saved the project to an internal hard drive and much to my amazement, the audio issue remains in the new project on the internal hard drive! Now what?

EDIT: I just copied the project to another internal hard drive and the audio issue isn't there. This is just too weird!

Not to doubt what you have done but did you clear the audio cache after moving?

Might just be playing back an old preview render otherwise.

would that be the same thing as deleting the sfk file associated with the wav file? if so, then yes, I did delete it.

Maybe VolumetricMedia is referring to 'Clean project media' (Tools menu). The <.sfk> waveform file is rewritten if the audio files date or anything else is changed. Not sure about lossy files though where a proxy is built.

As well, confirm the 'new' file is not a hidden 'Take'. If an underlying take is replaced, the top take would still remain and playback.

Hmm I doubt it, according to what I read, that just removes unused media from the project (actually never even knew that was there)

Hi! Perhaps what I said was unnecessary - I apologise if I sent you down a time wasting path. I have not been using Vegas very much this year so my head is all over other software at the moment. Good luck working this weirdness out!

This problem has crept up again on me. Opened one veg that has CD audio in it, and it's fine. Opened another .veg that has CD audio in it, and the audio is playing a combination of the correct song, mixed with audio from the totally separate veg file. Super annoying.
