Good info for recovering step by step a crash VEG project.

On the other hand, it is also a good suggestion to have multiple save projects too since the VEG files are small files.

@Set, there are some quite quirky things in that guide. I have on my list to write a new guide to recovering.veg files from .bak, temp files etc., and also how to back them up (manually and/or scripts). Probably the next one I'll do.

Ouch! What a bad video! He mumbles something under his nose while playing loud music in the background. A perfect example of how not to make a tutorial.

Yep, someone asked about it on other forum, and he found this short tutorial...

But I think this can be described by only texts.

 

Anyway, what's the difference between:

File>Save/Save As and check mark 'Copy Media With Project'

and

File>Export>Vegas Project Archive ?

Nick, maybe a link to your zip file of the Help Center articles in your FAQ section 6.?

Done. I've rewritten that section. Thanks for the nudge.

This beginners' guide might be useful for newbies in the FAQ section.

Thanks. May be worth @set adding their VP15 playlist to the tutorials thread.

FAQ Request:

Could Nick, Marco, Cornico, et al, come up with concensus, bulletproof settings for using OBS in Vegas, and add to th FAQ?

There are 3-4 lost souls here every week looking for the answer...

Marco. wrote on 12/31/2017, 11:28 AM

I can't as I never ever used OBS.

vkmast wrote on 12/31/2017, 11:57 AM

@Musicvid the main FAQ point 19. links to Information on codecs etc.. The last paragraph in section 1. there gives a link to Nick's settings and to another comment. Not sure about bulletproof, but they seem to work. A bit of digging needed, so mv's suggestion is worth considering as there are bound to be even more "lost souls" in the near future.

@vkmast

+1

Gamers generally aren't inclined to dig for answers. I've suggested a gaming / screencap subforum several times, where the correct encoding information could be readily available, without all the questions, which are generally all the same.

There have been seven other posts containing the words "OBS settings" in the past week, and 40+ posts containing those words in the past month. . And that's just one of several capture utilities.

Here's my OBS settings... so far it works nicely for me.*

Besides OBS, I also using Radeon ReLive to record my screen.

*I rarely playing games or recording it... I usually uses it for recording my Vegas Pro's activities for feedback purposes.

I can write a new FAQ post in a day or two when I'm back at my desk.

The case was BIOS resetting on the system which makes the activation status confusing.

By deleting the activation list in the magix.com log-in , and then uninstall-reinstall, fix the problem.

Done. Currently #36 in the FAQ index.

I added this to #3 on this post. I guessed that an uninstall/reinstall was not necessary, but just a re-activation after deactivating the device. Please let me know if that's not so. We could give it its own FAQ item if it comes up often.

10 - If you have DVD Architect, don't forget to import a rendered media there too, to proceed with the activation process.

*This also includes the required rerendering if needed. (like disc animated thumbnail menu)

I dropped a few files on my DVDA 7 and no activation windows popped up. I guess I may have already done it in the past. What are the exact instructions for this, with reference to this list, which is the list we're recommending for doing a short render in Vegas Pro?:

  • Intel HEVC/MAGIX ProRes
  • Magix AVC/AAC MP4
  • MainConcept MPEG-2
  • MP3 Audio
  • AAC Audio
  • Dolby Digital AC-3 Studio
