File Size of video file affecting performance in Vegas
on Dec 17, 2016 at 12:55:24 pm

I have a major problem. My client has requested me to edit one of his cinematic videos. The problem is, his video file size is about 70 GB large and it makes Vegas lag like heck. Is there anyway to make vegas run better while editing these large projects or is there no hope?

My Specs :
GTX 970
Intel Core i7 6900K
16GB Corsair 3200mhz Dominator DDR4
Intel 400GB 750 PCIe SSD
Windows 10 Home

Post the "Media Info"(its an application) on the video file. You may need to render a proxy file to something like xdcam-ex, Cineform.avi, or HDCAM-SR-lite. *** Important to render the proxy file frame for frame to the original for length and sync reasons. ***

Put the original file in a subfolder, and get the project working pointing to the original in the subfolder.

Put the proxy render in another subfolder "proxy."

Close the vegas project, and rename the original folder. Open the vegas project and point missing files to the proxy files.

Edit away.

When its time to render. Close the proxy project. rename the original folder back, and the rename the proxy folder.

Open the Vegas project and point the missing files to the original file.

Render the final project using the master file size and quality.
