Vegas Pro 18 crashes every couple of minutes, particularly when I move from one position on the timeline to another. That's not even long enough to create a timed backup. I need to manually save every few keystrokes to make any progress.
I 'upgraded' from Vegas Pro 17 to Vegas Pro 18 a month ago.
I am trying to work on a project originally set up on MovieStudio and subsequently migrated to Vegas Pro 17. It's moderately complex, but does not use any of the 3rd party effects (not installed).
For info, the program crashes on newly created projects as well.
I have done various tweaks as shown in YouTube videos but they have no effect:
- OpenCL/... FALSE
- Legacy AVC/HEVC enabled
- Memory allocation 4096MB (which seems reasonable, especially if I have to open two instances of Vegas to copy material from other projects).
I have the current version of Vegas Pro 18 (build 284).
My PC is Win10 on an i7-6700 processor with 32GB RAM and has been working OK with Vegas for the last 8 years.
My video card is NVIDIA, but as it's only a simple 2GB model, I have turned GPU rendering OFF. (Not as though it makes any difference to stability).
This 'upgrade' has completely sabotaged my editing work.
Does anyone have any idea how I go about debugging this?
