Computer System: 7700k-16GB RAM-GTX-1080-
(All files GoPro Hero 7 Black 4k 60 HEVC)
Well I purchased Vegas 17 last month in hopes of faster render times and at least for me right now the program is very unusable. Having ZERO issues with Vegas 16 with the exact files, this is just present with Vegas 17. Anyway Ill describe the behavior on whats happening in hopes of a bug fix.
When importing my files into v17 when it is on "Intel QSV" mode my Page file on windows gets USED heavily until Vegas crashes or windows 10 itself will crash. On Vegas 16 I noticed the page-file will ONLY be used if "Thumbnails to Show In Video Events" is selected. But on 17 the page-file will get used heavily regardless of this setting and crash my system. When I switch v17 to use NVIDIA NVDEC I can import with no hangs and ZERO pagefile usage. BUT after some editing in the timeline the program gets large hangs and will freeze. I have tried NVDEC with thumbnails on/off and the issue remains.
On Vegas 16 no issues, no hangs, no problems editing. So what changed? What "hardware decoder" did/does v16 use? Additionally I have 16GB of ram and notice vegas will only use 3 to 4gb when editing projects?
