- uninstalled Vegas 9d (both 32 and 64 bit editions)
- removed all references to Sony Vegas from system drive
- removed all references to Sony Vegas from Registry
- removed all third party plugins
- clean install of Sony Vegas 9d
Unfortunately, this fresh install exhibits the same problems as previously described... slow to open existing projects, long periods of non-responsiveness, attempts at zooming and scrolling around the timeline are futile.
BG programs - I keep these to an absolute minimum.
AV - only Avast running.
I will disable everything and try again.
But now I am back at 9c, I find the complete purging of my system of references to vegas has wiped my installs of Autosave and Project Inspector from JetDV. The installers I have won't work with VP9; VP8 only according to the error message.
TLF, same problems as you and i have had a reply from sony support saying that the problem is UNcommon so its beig passed to the engineers.
Ive also tried vegas 64 bit 9D but thats worse as it wont open Cineform avis properly, only the audio appears.
will let you all know if I hear anymore from Sony
meantime back on with the work in vegas 9c.
I have just reported the problem to customer support. I think really everyone should do this, as it's the only way for Sony to get a feeling if it is a big problem or a problem only affecting certain people. A have also added as much project and media information as possible as well as where project and media files are stored, so it might be easier for Sony to find common things between people experiencing the problems.
Going back a few posts, I've loaded the 9d dlls for white balance and layered PDSs into 9c and it works a treat. BUT I think I may have found a possible PSD layer bug. Just have to do some more testing.
Last time I loaded and went firing on all 6 unfortunately one round ended in my left foot the other in my right foot the other 4 hit the target ” I think” At present I am working on more than 30 live projects “ no exaggeration “so I am waiting for the screams and pain to stop before reloading…. tempting as it is
OK can someone confirm this, preferably with Photoshop CS4.
- Open a JPEG image.
- Convert the background layer to an editable layer by double clicking it and accepting that it will become Layer 0.
- Add some other layers, all of them with transparency (I cloned parts from Layer 0)
- Count your layers
- Save as a PSD
- Drag the PSD onto the Vegas timeline
How many layers do you have now?
I found that Vegas created one layer more than was in the PSD, and that this extra layer was a composite of all the layers.
Eh . . my opinion is that it is an uncontrollable feature, therefore it is a feature with a bug in it. You've got to be asking yourself this question: What would a person wanting to just import a straight, flattened (do they exist?) PSD? If they got the issues we are seeing what would THEY say?
>> And where, numerically, . . . Why not at the top or bottom?!
Ah! That's a goodie . . I believe it was Stream1, but as I am Acronising my sysdrive I can't get back onto my edit machine to deny or confirm. In any case you sound as if you have a Stream switch going on.
No major issues here. Love the mp4 seek fix...that was a huge problem for me. I run a small (4 editing suites) production facility with Sony Z7s and EX1Rs and I can't really imagine how we'd live without Vegas.
I'm really thinking the Cineform files (old and new) are part of the slow project start thing. That dll was also being screwed around with between 8.0 and 8.c and 9.0. I had to change it in 9 to get the vidcap to work to capture properly.
