Pressing "Render As" Crashes Vegas Pro 18 | Unable to render anything

Deata wrote on 8/5/2020, 6:41 AM

Hey just installed Vegas pro 18 and finished my first project with it, issue is that i cant render it because no matter what i do, when i press "Render As" the program hangs for a second and then closes itself without a crash report.

This is an issue because Vegas Pro doesn't have any backwards compatibility so im gonna have to basically start from the beginning using Vegas Pro 17.

Does anyone have any workaround because a NLE that can't render and has no backwards compatibility/proper export options is as usefull as a rock

What render format and template are you using? One thing to try first would be to click Help, and then use the new driver update utility to download the recommended drivers for your GPU.

AMD Ryzen 7 1800x 8 core 16 thread at stock speed

I cant choose a render format because when i click "Render as" the program instantly freezes and closes.

I never even see the window to choose a render format.

I have updated all my drivers with a driver update tool and checked they are all latest and correct and every others software and version of Vegas Pro that i own renders fine.

Did you updated with VPro18's own option to update drivers in the Help?

I did not, though im using the latest nvidia studio drivers so unless there are vegas pro only nvidia studio drivers then i don't see the point ?

This is clearly not a driver issue because its not that i cant render, its that opening the panel where i would choose a render format causes Vegas Pro to crash.

I imagine if there were any issues with a particular driver, the dev team would link to a driver they know works in the driver update utility, so I'd recommend using it.

That said, it seems as if the issue isn't related to that. Perhaps try a re-install?

Please make sure you do not have any third-party FileIO plugins installed, which are not compatible with VEGAS Pro 18. If you do not have any third-party FileIO plugins, can you provide the contents of your FileIO log (from C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Local\VEGAS Pro\18.0\fileio_x64.log), to help us diagnose the problem?

Just did a small single camera piano/vocal 4K h.265 project with Vegas 17 and 18 in parallel without proxies... lots of freeze-ups in both. But playback was very smooth in 18 till wamo, it would just go busy with the hour-glass. Oddly, it was happening when I was doing allot of envelope editing on the vocal and piano audio tracks. Before I even got to any video editing. Seemed like the more often I saved, the less it happened. When I got to the render stage after color grading with Vegas 18 and rendered the 20-minute set with Magix HEVC 4K AMD preset, it worked fine once but after that render started hanging. Reboots didn't help. Finally deleted everything in the Vegas temp directory (the one listed at the bottom of the General Preferences screen) and that fixed it. Had a number of log files in there plus allot of other stuff. Been rendering fine since then.

Yup this solved the issue, though i need to apparently clear it a few times during editing if i want to keep rendering.
