I am unable to save changes to my psd files in Photoshop CS 5.5 without shutting down Vegas if the psd file is on the Vegas timeline. I have the preferences set up in Vegas to let go of files when using in other programs. This works fine in Vegas 10.
Something is wrong with Vegas 12 not letting go of files properly. I filed a ticket.
Thanks for confirming that. If possible please file a ticket. I'll try the minimizing work around but usually the way I work is back forth between photoshop and Vegas. I'm also experiencing strange issues with Sound Forge 9 and Vegas 12. I usually have to close SF after returning to Vegas in order for Vegas to recognize the audio changes.
I'm not in front of Vegas at the moment, but isn't there a setting in Options / Preferences about Vegas releasing files? I don't remember what it's called or what to look for, but I seem to recall there's a setting like this. Maybe it's set differently in 12 than in your other versions?
I'll throw in my 2 cents---I don't usually select the "Close Media Files" option because (if the files within Vegas aren't changing) it can dramatically slow down the time Vegas gets ready to work when you click off and back to it. But when I do, and if I'm using Photoshop to fiddle with a graphic, quite often during the switch between Vegas & Photoshop the file becomes marked as busy elsewhere and unable to be saved. Once the file becomes marked this way, I usually quit Vegas, then open Task Manager.
In Task Manager I can see whether or not Vegas is still running and exerting control over the file. Vegas can appear in the Processes tab for a long time (45 seconds) after I close it, which can cause confusion in "ownership" of files. This behavior seems to compound when I open multiple instances of Vegas---usually one of them crashes, which doesn't help matters either.
OK . . . I've got an anomaly that I don't remember happening before: I can now no longer treat the separate "layers" now Event on its own Tracks with any movement like Rotation in either Pan/Crop or Track Motion. I defintiely could before. Also changing the "layer" in Vegas breaks the link back into Corel.
Yup, I got it now.
Here's a (yes, badly rendered from me, from my WMP file) multi-layered PSD (PSP<>Vegas) I did in previous version of VP. And this worked.......
Just had another round with tech support and they have confirmed the issue.
Thank you for writing back. The developer I have been working with has responded saying that this is a known issue and that it has been submitted to be fixed in a future release of the application. Apologies for the inconvenience and be sure to keep an eye out for future updates.
