Vegas Pro 21 Build 187 Hang when previewing DJI Action 4 footage

baksideDisaster_Flicks wrote on 12/4/2023, 10:29 PM

So I'm hitting a bug where Vegas 21 Build 187 hangs whenever I try to use .mp4 files from DJI Action 4 camera. All I need to do to reproduce the problem is import the footage and open up in the Trimmer and it will hang. Eventually Windows will detect hang and I can close, or end task to get out but it's basically useless with any of this footage.

I have dump file saved and can upload to Google Drive if someone wants to take a look.

On the same exact system and configuration, I can use this footage fine on Vegas 20 Build 411. I completed a couple hour editing session on Vegas 20 without issue so looks to be unique to Vegas 21.

Here's my system configuration, and yes I am using the latest NVDIA Studio driver from 11/01/23.

Is the iGPU enabled in bios? If not enable it so it can do the decoding.

Can you share mediainfo for the media? I have no idea what mp4 means- is it HEVC? AVC? 10-bit?

Can you upload a sample of it so we can test on other machines?

Here's repro project with couple MP4s from DJI Action 4 camera. Seems to repro the easiest with multiple files.
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-0t6r41X8BfUb8IlGVpVheX0eSPNvQd7/view?usp=sharing

Most reliable repro, usually hangs somewhere in one of these steps:

1. Start new project

2. Import DJI Action 4 camera mp4s

3. Add one file to timeline and accept project settings change

4. Open file in Trimmer and scrub

I confirm VP21b187 crashing

Also my vegas changed aspect ratio on crash with a white rectangle . @baksideDisaster_Flicks do you get the same sort of crash ?

I don't get aspect ratio change but same style hang. Looks like we have a bug here.

Because QSV decoding works better in VEGAS than NVDEC, especially with HEVC.

@baksideDisaster_Flicks What you paid the money for is the ability to do fast 3D calculations and it excels at that. In VEGAS that's found in preferences/ video.

NVIDIA also includes separate circuitry for decoding and encoding: https://developer.nvidia.com/video-codec-sdk

Unlike 3D, decoding isn't really any thing much different than what Intel can do with the integrated GPU. Intel's been at it for the longest and has support for formats that AMD and NVIDIA do not. Speedwise there aren't big differences between dedicated and integrated. VEGAS works best with Intel QSV for decoding and has for some time. I built my machine around an Intel K CPU for that reason.

It certainly shouldn't crash but even when it works NVIDIA is inferior to QSV in VEGAS (both my computers have NVIDIA GPUs) so the best approach at present is a combination of both of them, not one or the other. Decoding is controlled by preferences/ file io.

Vegas 21 has a reliability issue, I'd like to see that fixed. It should work out the box without me having to monkey around with my system. Vegas 20 just works and I'm no stranger to Vegas, been here since 6.0. With that, thanks for the tech dump I'll look into QSV and enabling it to see if it works any better.

This isn't new to VP 21 and NVDEC has issues with many types of footage from 15 on (intermittent crashes are worse than immediate in my book as you don't know when they'll cause trouble).

Of course we want the problems fixed and until that day comes need to do what we can to keep working.

Works fine in Vegas 20. This is a regression in Vegas 21. I can edit with same footage all day, same pc, same config with no issues. Right now I guess what I need do is still edit in Vegas 20. 😠

It worked well for me in Vegas 21 build 108 and another 187, 208 kept crashing. I selected IGD in the bios and now the 208 is very stable, it hasn't crashed yet. Both cards allocate work as needed. Vegas settings see below

What's IGD mean? IGPU?

Dynamic ram preview amount looks needlessly high, VEGAS can also use ram for other things.

IGD is the same as IGPU - IGD is integrated graphics

The dynamic preview of RAM is functional this way and does not limit me in anything yet. 😉

 

 

 

RogerS wrote on 12/18/2023, 2:07 AM

@pajam Dynamic ram preview takes away memory VEGAS can use for other purposes. At present VEGAS is doing more to cache frames in video ram and your iGPU uses shared (system) ram for this.

You are welcome to test it yourself- you will see no performance benefits from dynamic ram preview after a few GB.

@baksideDisaster_Flicks  No problems with your project on my system as long as I use Nvidia Geforce 2060 RTX Super for the decoder. Playback is a smooth 50 fps, even at Best - Full.

If I use the Intel 630 HD integrated for the decoder, playback is bad. The Intel 630 HD isn't that great. Later versions may prove better. If I use HEVC (experimental), playback is bad.
