Vegas 12 Won't Render Videos w/ new Nvidia Updates

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if anyone else was having this issue...the last two Nvidia updates for my GeForce GTX 780 graphics card have made it so whenever I try to render out a video, it fails and brings up the troubleshooting window to either report the problem or close the program down....specifically it's the 353.06 Game Ready driver released on 5/31/15 & the 352.86 update released back on 5/18/15.

I've made no changes to my render settings, I haven't downloaded any major updates to my computer within that timeframe, and I'm able to open up the projects and play them (I just can't render out a final version)

The 350.12 update released back in April is the last driver that I'm able to render out videos with, and with some newer games releasing soon, I want to make sure I'm up to date with everything for optimization purposes.

My rendering specs are:
Sony AVC mp4
Audio: 128 Kbps, 48,000 Hz, 32 Bit, Stereo, AAC
Video: 59.940 fps, 1920x1080 Progressive, YUV, 16 Mbps
Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.000
Best Rendering Quality

My PC specs are:
Windows 8.1, 64-bit, 32GB Ram
Nvidia GTX 780 GPU

Any help is appreciated!

go back to the driver that works. nvidia is gamer-focused, not video editing, so the latest isn't necessarily the greatest for us. some folks here still use ~298.xx or other old ones.

if you need to edit w/vegas and run games, seems like the 350 is the one.

That's kinda what I feared...alright then, thanks for the reply!

It's kind of double edged sword for gamers. I video capture game play and Vegas crashes on the latest Nvidia driver releases so I edit and render w/out GPU acceleration. It's a waste of gpu but have to go w/ what works. My system is a 6 core i7 so can handle pretty well w/out the GPU but saving some time rendering would definitely be a plus. (;

On projects that require a lot of rendering, I capture first w/ current Nvidia drivers then load the older (347.88) NVIDIA drivers when I need it. This can be a pita at times.

When I get the $, I'm thinking about going w/ ATI R9 290, as others here are having good success w/ it.
