Recent build of VP16 crashing a lot

Jessariah67 wrote on 4/22/2019, 9:26 AM

I'm finding the most recent build (361) of VP16 to be very crash-happy - predominantly when opening existing files. No rhyme or reason to it. Sometimes the same file will not open, regardless of how I try (FILE>OPEN; Pinned link; direct from explorer, etc.), without crashing while loading - even after a cold boot. Then it suddenly will. No fancy or complicated anything - a lot of times it is with templates that I have set up, so there are barely any project media or plugins involved.

I've turned off Dynamic RAM preview (set it to zero), but have kept the GPU acceleration on (it takes forever to render with it off, but this isn't an issue that comes up when I'm trying to render something).

System is an i7, Win 10, 32G memory, Nvidia 1060 6G GPU

Are you saying that previous builds of VP16 ran ok?

The last few versions of VP have had "more" NOT RESPONDING incidents & crashes than usual, but lately, it's happening much more often - to the point where I sometimes have to open the bak file after repeated tries. So, I don't have any details as to how much more it is with 361, I just know that it has been happening enough since 361 that it's gone beyond being an occasional annoyance and is starting to enter the realm of "concern."

That option has nothing to do with rendering, that option allows you for smoother previewing of some effects, nothing more.
Rendering with GPU is something else and that you have to choose in the rendertemplate.

@Jessariah67 if you turn off GPU acceleration of video processing and this helps, then it may be time to either update your 1060 drivers, or if you are on the latest drivers, roll back to a previous version.

I have never seen Vegas Pro get worse unless the root cause is in source media, something got changed in the system (hardware, OS, or drivers), or perhaps our use/misuse of FX's?

Are you processing in 32 bit floating point by any chance?

Since I'm not sure what 32-bit floating point is, I would have to guess that I'm using whatever the default setting is.

Good answer, it's a pixel format, 8 bit is the default and that is fine.

How about my other question, "if you turn off GPU acceleration of video processing and this helps"?

It didn't, really (and the occurrence is so random, that it likely would be hard to pinpoint the cause).

I've had other veg files that "didn't like" a certain media clip and would crash it during rendering or hang it up while loading. The real head-scratcher with this situation is that the same file might crash four times in a row, but then open fine 10 times in a row - without any changes at all (since it is a template file and immediately gets renamed once it is opened).

Appreciate all the input. I've been a Vegas user since VV2 (the Sonic Foundry days) and have always found the Vegas community to be one of the most accommodating & friendly.
