Projekt lädt nicht

julik-p wrote on 1/13/2017, 4:55 AM

Hallo an alle,

habe das Problem, dass mein Projekt nicht mehr lädt. Habe es mehrfach geöffnet, geändert, gepeichert und konnte am nächsten Tag weiter arbeiten. Nun war es komplett fertig, musste nur noch als Videodatei gespeichert werden. Als ich die Datei dann öffnen und exportieren wollte, öffnete sich bzw. lädt das Projekt nicht mehr.

Bei 0% steht es die ganze Zeit und Vegas Pro kann ich nur über den Taskmanager schließen.

Ich habe zwei Dateien auf dem Desktop:

- Typ: BAK-Datei "Trailer.veg"

- Typ: VEG-Datei "Trailer"

Ich hatte im Forum gelesen, dass man versuchen kann die BAK-Datei umzubennen.

Wie ist das gemeint, dass man die Backup-Datei zu .veg umbennent?

 

Vielen Dank!

I feel your frustration.  I had something similar happen years ago in Vegas Pro 11, though the load stalled at 22% or thereabouts.  It was due to a corrupt video clip which was eventually identified because it appeared in Project Media as a video icon only - not as a thumbnail image.  Removing that clip from the project solved the problem.

Getting the veg file to load was very much trial and error.  One way was to open a veg file from a completely different project, close that, then open the problem veg file - it often but not always worked.  Just rebooting the computer often worked, but starting Windows in safe mode enabled the veg file to be opened.

I hope that one of these approaches will resolve your problem.

Cheers

Restoring the backup veg file is done by changing the file extension. First make sure your Windows Explorer is showing file extensions, it seems yours doesn't. You should see two files "xxxxx.veg" and "xxxxx.veg.bak". Remove the .bak and you have restored the bak file to a veg project file. I would make a copy of the backup file first and rename it.

Thank you for your answers! I would like to try the second way - restoring the backup veg file - it seems to be the easiest way.

My explorer doesn't show file extensions. Only the names and types.

Does it make sense, if I change the names (to xxxxxx.veg) anyway?

I have changed the names by myself to Trailer Hochzeit.veg (I hope it was no nonsense :D ).

Oh, thank you!

Now there are shown file extensions. I renamed them from xxxx.veg.bak to xxxx.veg, but it doesn't work :(( I think I have to start a new project...

Switch off GPU acceleration in Vegas an try to open the project again. I had issues with certain FX that don't work with GPU acceleration on. Also clear all temporary files before opening the project again.

  1. Move all the project media to a different location
  2. Open the project
  3. Choose "Ignore all missing files and leave them offline"
  4. If project doesn't open, consider disabling any 3rd-party plugins you used by renaming them or the folders they are in, or by uninstalling them (if you didn't do that already).
  5. If project opens, close it and move some media back to it's correct location.
  6. Re-open project.
  7. Repeat steps 5 & 6 until you find the "problem" media.
  8. Fix problem media by re-rendering in Vegas (if you can) or another converter.

To step 4: How do I disable the plugins? Sorry, this is something new for me. I'm not a profi in this stuff :))

You move them temporarily to a different directory.

How about renaming the directory or directories the project media are in and then open the project. You can then select to let them all be offline and if the project opens, you know that one of the files is corrupted but if it still doesn't open, then there is an issue with an FX, Transition or plugin or the file itself is corrupted.

I tried it. I changed the localisation of the media and opened the project, but it didn't start - also 0% and closing only with the taskmanager. Also tried to rename the plug in, opened the project - also 0%.

 

I remember the last thing I did, before this problem appeared, was switching off GPU acceleration. After that I saved the project, closed and later opened it and it stopped at 0%/ didn't load anymore. But don't know if this is the reason of the problem.

It sometimes helps to clear all temporary files that Vegas creates and the .sfk files too that are created for every media file used that contains audio.

Running out of ideas. Can you upload the project file to Google Drive or similar? Have you tried reseting Vegas to factory defaults?

How can I clear temporary files? I cleared some with CCleaner yesterday. Is it the same or where can I find the ones of Vegas?

 

Sorry for stupid questions, like this one :))

OldSmoke wrote on 1/15/2017, 1:24 PM

Not a stupid question at all. There are three locations Vegas will use for temporary files,

one under preferences

and two under project properties

 

To reset Vegas to it's default state, press CTRL+SHIFT while launching Vegas and keep holding it until you see a splash screen.

The problem is solved. I deleted all temporary files. It was the song in my project. Thank you so much!!
