I'm having a little downtime lately which gives me an opportunity to troubleshoot various issues on my editing system.

I have a project with 154 total video and audio clips. Those clips are soley 50mb XDCAM mxf and .wav files. 

It takes Vegas Pro 14 one minute and 48 seconds to open this project.

It takes Vegas Pro 13 only 29 seconds to open this project.

I have deleted the cache for Vegas Pro 14 in the event that would help but no change. This is build 211 on a Windows 10 system.

Anyone else out there who can test veg file opening times between Vegas 13 and Vegas 14?

I don't use 14 but I do know that the # of plugins you have for Vegas can slow down loading times.

Right, I don't use 14 either yet. I bought it hoping that it would be helpful but so far, not so much. I am using the same plugins for Vegas 12 through 14 so unless I am missing something, that shouldn't be the reason that Vegas Pro 14 is so slow to load any vegas project file compared to versions 12 or 13. Would be nice if I get someone else to verify this problem as well.

You have the media browser turned on? I don't use it so I turned it off, could be loading that up.

Also, you autoloading the last project?

I did a comparison of VP10/12/13/14 opening times here, but unfortunately only DV/HDV/UHD. I don't have enough XDCAM mxf files, but I guess I could transcode some other format to give it a try some time, if nobody else contributes.

In my tests, VP14 (build 201) didn't do too bad, and much better than VP12/13 for HDV. So it seems like it's not a generic issue but specific to the particular format of media you're opening.
