The VEGAS Team is excited to announce the release of our first update for VEGAS Pro 20, build 214. Please use this thread to post general comments on this update. For details on build 214, please read this post in the News forum.
How can it be faulty if if doesn't support your computer? I posted what the requirements are to use the software. You wrote you are on Win7. It is not supported. So even if you got it to possibly work, all features may not work. I would never upgrade to any new software without making sure that my computer meets the requirements.
So..... get your refund and look software that still supports Win7.
Faulty version of Vegas Pro 20? I will only add that in a very old version from a few years ago there were no problems with it.
Of course, an earlier version of Vegas Pro, particularly from the Windows 7 era, would have worked well on your Windows 7 computer which presumably has specs from that era. But times have changed. With the introduction of Windows 10 (2015), some hardware like older printers which worked in W7 and W8.1 failed to work in W10 because drivers for discontinued products were not updated by manufacturers. Similarly, coding for software like Vegas Pro have significantly advanced to take advantage of current OS capabilities consequently leaving pre-Windows 10 technology far behind. As mentioned before, even Microsoft doesn't support Windows 7 in any manner any longer.
If your computer technology is from the Windows 7 era, then stick with the programs from that era that work - or upgrade to a current technology computer to take advantage of current day software.
Explorer window still freezes up often requiring closing it with the little X then re adding it with ALT 1. Displaying contents of a folder in Explorer window (sound effects, for instance) takes 10-20 seconds almost...every...time.....This did not occur in previous versions of Vegas.
Any word on fixing the auto window resize issue with audio plugins (when 3rd party plugs are in the chain)?
No, but I tried now and as expected, Vegas opens with no project so I double clicked my current project and it instantly opens along with the strange popup... quite expected in my view. Wait, but inside it says :
A nested project source media file (the old one) was not found.
Well, why would it, should it be found?
Another thought: Is there a way that I could disable the popup so that I wouldn't have to deal with it since it doesn't seem to be giving me any useful information - at least that I can think of?
I will need it eventually so it would be better stated if I say I have put it aside and it is no more listed when I open my next project (or scene). As an animator I am drawing each scene which means I am creating a scene frame by frame. My WIP requires that I periodically check my progress in Vegas which gives me a more accurate playback on a larger screen than my animation app. Therefore I am reopening scenes many times under the same name but with more frames.
Out of curiosity I reopened the scene which my popup claims is missing and I got the same claim that this scene is missing so something is screwy with this popup and in my opinion should be rechecked by the developers.
I wonder if I can be the only one who has to deal with this popup every time I enter a project or just open the app.If that is the case then perhaps I have missed a setting or some such error whilst creating my GUI layout. Can you think of some setting or string of settings I should look at in search of the popup's source?
Sorry for opening so many boxes but EDIT works only for a limited space of time.
I think I have the popup figured out because sometimes I'll get a list of the same project a dozen or more times repeated and when I just click on OK it quickly throws them out somewhere. This happens after I have deleted several frames and replace these with ones with better drawings.
This is apparently a utility to help the user know that the original project has lost certain elements; anywhere from a single missing frame to an entire collection of changed source instances. It is trying to be helpful to regular movie makers but because of my differing pipeline it becomes a tiresome nag.
It's interesting that Vegas is maybe following every change in my project source as they happen, not just upon arrival. If I click on OK the utility is happy that I acknowledge it's services of a do-gooder. Just like a real life nag.
Just in fairness to the developers I solved the issue. I was cleaning out and deleting my redundant versions of my project and after keeping just my last one to continue working with it the popup has never showed up again.
Thank you j-v for hanging with me which is the best part of this forum!
Thank you guys...read ending above and just a small and hopefully last note on this subject: I discovered that all the projects Vegas 20 was unhappy about me using were from Vegas 19. It would have been helpful if the popups had stated that too but perhaps they couldn't tell. All is well this morning in Montgomery county, PA.
