Vegas pro 16 crashes

yvde wrote on 5/22/2019, 9:08 AM

During loading several hundreds of .mpg clips recorded with a sony camcorder, Vegas suddenly closes.

When loading the same clips per 70 units, Vegas closes after having loaded only some 450 to 500 clips.

This problem also occured with Vegas Pro 13 and 14. I never complained about it as I thought the problem was known by Sony/Magix and would be solved in one the new upgrades. I bought now Vegas Pro 16 but the problem still exists.

I am now obliged to import all my clips (some 1000 clips) in another editing program (Corel VideoStudio), and render them to one single mpg file in order to import it in Vegas.

I'm running Windows 10.

CPU Intel i8400

Graphics Geforce GTX1060 - 6 GB

Memory 16 GB

Can you help please

Thanks

Turn off GPU acceleration. If this doesn't help, check out other possibles here:

BTW, I just loaded 1000 media clips from my Sony NX30u to a VP16 timeline. No crash.

As a practical matter, I've never seen the need for such large timelines. Can you work on 1000 pieces of media all at once? I always break up my projects into smaller sections, combining things into a final for render. My typical section in a longer form project is 5-10 min. I just completed a 6 1/2 piece that was shown in a local theater. I can't imagine working on something like this with one 6 1/2 hour timeline.

Never buy software in hopes that a bug was fixed when there is a free demo available to test it first.

You could try Import Assist from Happy Otter Scripts to convert the files into another format Vegas may be more friendly with. HOS is a (currently) free tool you can download from tools4vegas.com.

I never import manually Media clips into Vegas, most of the time I just take the clips from the Vegas explorer into the timeline, those clips are automatically imported into the media tab. Like xberk, my (sub) projects are not longer than a few minutes. Also I use regurarly the project cleaning function before saving my project, to remove unused media from the project.

I hate breaking my projects into smaller chunks... even my 6+ hour multicams usually share one timeline. However, over 1000 clips is excessive for any app from a stability perspective. You can't expect there to be good performance with that many files competing for resources. I'd try breaking it into quarters.

Who watches a 6+ hour movie?

>>Who watches a 6+ hour movie?

In my case, it was a special audience of interested parties. We broke the thing into three 2 hour 10 min sections with a break between each.

My workflow, from the start, was as near to 10 min sections as I could get. This decision saved me untold trouble. I wound up with something like 40 veg files but with great flexibility and ease of access to any part of the piece.

That's probably a recording of a one day training course, but not a movie of 6+hours.
