Hello,

Thank you for the update.

I have a problem that was not fixed by the update.

My problem is that the Movie Studio Platinum 13 had no issues.

I updatet to Movie Studio Platinum 15 where i have the problem that if i put a mp4 file to the timeline and put a next one a little bit over the first and play it there is lag. I can't see for my self how this 'fade in/out' to the next mp4 file does look like untill i do make a movie of it (render). Than it looks ok. This is not so nice that i can not preview it like i can in MSP13. My laptop is fast enough and on MSP13 its no problem. I have a Lenovo Legion Y520 with 4gb Video GTX 1080 card.

This is a pitty because i do like MSP15 more than 13 because it does render much faster. I have both programs on my PC because i first will delete MSP13 when MSP15 does not have this problem with previewing things.

I do not have this problem in MSP13. Its only since i have MSP15 and in MSP15. Settings are all the same.

I hope you understand what i try to tell what is my problem and hopefully there is something i have to change or whatever.

 

Greetings

PJ

I think you have a memory problem somewhere.
But you have 2 pretty fast ways to temporely overcome your issue for the preview:
1. Build a Dyn. Ram Preview if you have an amount of RAM selected in that option in Options/Preferences
2. Selectively prerender and choose there the codec you want to use for your "normal" output.

Thanks J-V,

I Just checked but i can not select them they are both light grey. (also the same in MVP13).

I startet MVP15 as admin or as startup with best graphic processer all the times it is light grey so i can not select it.

What do i do wrong? And at what settings if i can set it, should i set it to?
Is it not strange with MVP13 there are not these problems with the preview? The laptop i bought is a fast one i only did buy for rendering with 4gb gtx 1050 (not 1080 i see) card in it and an I5 7th gen 7300HQ cpu 2,5 ghz0 processor. It says 7,89gb RAM in the Nvidia GeForce Experience program.

 

Thanks again.

I don't know , with me only the first one is not available when there is 0 MB chosen in the Options/Preferences/Video box. As soon as I choose there a certain amount Dyn R P and I select a small region of my timeline that option is available.

My second given option is always available.

I have exactly the same specs as Peter with a laptop. I can confirm that what j-v writes above is my experience with VMS15P as well.

You could try resetting to see if it helps. (Be sure to note points 3 and 4.)

I just upgraded to version 15 build 157 (from V8) and am very pleased with what's new and what's unchanged!
My problem is that when I select tabs at the top of docked windows, the tabs are partially clipped.

Any ideas?

EricLNZ wrote on 1/30/2019, 7:49 PM

V8 to v15 is a big jump! Not sure from your description what exactly you are seeing clipped. Could you grab a screenshot of the area and post it here?

Reg-Watts wrote on 1/31/2019, 1:13 PM

The letters on the tabs are clipped. Here is a screenshot.

 

Changing window size makes no difference.

BTW, how do I set up automatic notifications for this forum?

Reg-Watts wrote on 1/31/2019, 1:16 PM

I got an "error uploading" message for the screenshot.

In short, for example, the top of the letters "T" and "P" are clipped off. Its not a big problem.

@Reg-Watts click your avatar > My profile > Settings

Unfortunately, the "Upload file" has not functioned reliably for some time now.

My opinion is that's a shame for a compagny like Magix thats it's own forum is not behaving like it should for almost a week now.
I'm considering not to provide any help more here as long as this error is not solved.😡

I deny nobody, but everybody is free to come to our Dutch Vegas forum with all its tutorials and help for Vegas Pro, MS and DVDA where I can do all the things I'll want to do to help users with our (translated from Dutch) saying:

Hello again,

 

I did added some MP4 files to the timeline. And than i indeed see the one option: 'clean up prerendered video'. The other option did show up when i did select a range of the MP4 file. Question: what exactly does this mean?

Most nice thing today, when putting on my laptop to test these answers of you guys, was that i first did an BIOS update on my laptop wich first did not work automatically so downloaded at Lenovo.
Now testing some files first and try out your answers….but i was suprised no lag at all like in the older version mp13!! I do hope this is from now on the sollution.

for the record the bios update of mij Legion Y520 was called: 'Bios Update - 10 (64) - V.4KCN45WW

I am a noob at these things and don't know if this is the sollution to my problem but for now its great. If someone can tell this would be great to read ofcourse.

I hope for now this is the last time i have to post about this :))

That other option shows up when you select an amount of RAM in Options/ Prefences as I will show you in my screenplay below and also there I show you what that means. The play back in preview becomes after doing that more fluently on weaker hardware.

Thanks J-V!

So you mean: if the preview is laggy again and i do this so the preview will have more 'memory' and probably less lag in previewing. When all is finished i set it back to 0.

If it will come back (my problem) than i can use this to try out. Ofcourse it must not be like this because it would also take a lot of time. Maybe the same time MP13 will take longer rendering. But i think i prefer this option of extra memory because i think and hope MP15 is 'better' than 13.
