hi,
i have sony pro vegas 9.0a and have been rendering some clips approx 5 - 20 seconds, i have rendered about 30 clips but now when i try to render i get the system is low on memory, close apps to gain memory usage error message,

i have my paging file at 4602 and i have a 3.0Gb ram ( laptop dell xps m1530, i run VISTA), in sony pro vegas i have dynamic ram preview set at 0

looking in my task manager sony pro vegas 9 takes around 500,000k
looking at perfomance, ( all this changes slightly )

when pro vegas open -
1.80 GB used ( out of 3.0gb)
total 3069
cached 1523
free around 50

pro vegas closed
1.26gb used
total 3069
(with changing values which are usally around)
cached 1344 -- 1871
free 750 -- 136 can drop to double digits ( why so low? or is this normal )
pysical memory 40 % ( whats taking up so much memory)
cpu usage 10 % (when rendering it rockets up to 90-100%)

----------
i usaually have apparently 50-60 processes running wich i gather is to high how to i reduce this, why is there so many even when i have no apps running.
-------------
i did have norton 360 2.0 but looking around i found out its useless and a resource hog i unistalled it and installed bitdefender 2009 total secruity as its light and good, i optized pc perfomance but still no luck ( also have deframented pc )
----------
so please how do i fix this
how do i reduce ram useage
i need to render about 20, 10 second clips then render a 8 min project containg all these clips within this week. i dont understand why all of a sudden its came up.
-----------
i also recently about a month ago done a clean reformat of my pc so its bacially new, also running service pack 2 vista,
----------
footage is m2ts rendering to wmv
-----------
it renders wma(audio file but not video)
if you need anymore info i am willing to get it
-----------
i just done a memory diagnostics test to check if there was a memory leak but it found no problems.

I am new, but the solutions I have heard so far have been these:

Reboot Vegas, to defrag the swap file, and also to kill any additional instances of Vegas running in the background.

Make sure project properties are the same as render properties.

Kill all Antivirus and Internet Security before starting a render (as you won't be going online during that time).

In Options > Preferences, set Dynamic RAM Preview to 0. Set number of rendering threads to 1.

If that does not work, please let us know your project properties, and your rendering qualities (including audio).

I hope that helps.

Well, now I'm having rendering problems again!

"Instances of Vegas" means that when you press CTRL-ALT-DEL, and you start Windows Task Manager, sometimes Vegas is running more than once (more than one instance) at the same time.

I'm also interested to know what to kill. I will be interested to follow your progress. Let's hope one of the 'big dogs' will come along soon, so you can get some help.

ive made a break through and have managed to render 10 clips without doing anything unusual, no ending processes just simply ram to 0 (like i always have it ) and somehow it just decided to work,

But!! now i have the problem again but its NOT always system low on error during the render it just stops and comes up with a large vergas has stopped working error message which gives you an option to write was you was doing at the time and send the report to sony,

i get this everytime i render now, but at diffrenet times it can be 10% or 20 % or anything but it usally stays in a small radius of the previous render zone , example last render error 17 %, this render error 20 % , new render error 15%, so i am thinking this could be related to the hard disk space available, i have 219GB free so it shouldnt be a problem.

so what is causing this, when i had the system is low on memory error it usally came in the 1% , i ocasionally still get the error message but at simiallar times to when the vegas has stopped working errors appear.

what is happening i need to complete the project by this week, so i have 2days to fix the error and complete, please help me, this is now offically driving me insane i just CANT figure out what is causing it, ive had problems before with rendering but this is definetly the worst like i said i was rendering fine a couple days ago with no changes.

i have posted some screenshots above.

I've been piddlepissing around with this problem for months. I had pretty much given up, but for some reason following your example appears to have fixed my problem for the time being. I will continue to check back to this forum in search of the root of the problem and a definite solution.

thanks to everyone who's working on this issue.

I have noticed that when I use the Pixelan-Spicemaster plugin, that I get a lot of low-memory errors.

I got the same shitty problem!
The CPU shoots up to 90-100% but må RAM stays on 40%, cause I got 8GB RAM, and it never reaches more then 75%, but still it says: System LOW on memory.
I almost got 2 GB left!

Please, help us!

Try to change your virtual memory. Right click on My computer>Properties>Advanced>Performance>Advanced>Virtual memory>set your max and min to the same value e.g. 1024; 1024 and reboot and run the render again!

Hope it helps :)

I am having the same exact problem. Vegas has froze almost every time I open it. After every 20 times or so it finally opens and I try to render my project but it says system low on memory and sometimes just gives me an error. It was working fine until just recently. I do notice that the FileISOsurrogate.exe proccess is using a tremendous amount of memory, even more than I think it should, and it keeps getting higher. Have you found a solution yet?

I don't know about the recommendation to change your VM to *less* than what W7 64 Bit comes assigned with. My *default* setting for VM is 6143 MB why on earth would I set it to 1024 when I'm getting "low memory" errors?

the only way i fixed low memory error is by buying a 2.83 ghz quad core PC on 64 bit( didnt try 32 bit) with 8gb ram worked like a treat its the fact that if your pc is to slow it cant handle the data in hd if there is a vast amount, and actually corrupts the timeline,( well it did for me) so no solution i found and i tried everything there is, just maybe get a new pc, i might be selling mine if anyone is intrested =] haha

I just ran into the same problem about a week ago. I tried to figure out what I may have done to cause this. My computer is 1.5 yrs old, windows 7 pro, i7 quad core with 6gig ram, ATI 4850 graphics card, so handling the program is not a problem. I was editing jpeg photos with SD video. Ran numerous renders prior to this happening and never had a problem.

After careful consideration the only change I made to the computer was to the system restore. I made the system restore capacity larger. I decided to changed the size of the restore back to the original size, ran the render several times & it worked each time. I am not absolutely sure if that was the cause, but it seem awfully coincidental.
