Vegas color grade problem
on Jun 6, 2014 at 1:24:04 pm

Hi all!

I shoot weddings on Canon DSLR's. I then take the footage and transcode to DNxHD before editing. I edit 2 montages throughout the wedding DVD which always give me trouble. Each montage is around 3 minutes (the length of the song I'm using.)Each clip in the montage is between 2 and 6 seconds meaning there are a lot of clips. Once I have edited I start colour correcting/grading. After grading a certain amount of clips with magic bullet looks vegas crashes everytime.

I think the problem is with my computer as the more clips I work with the more I feel the processor/ram) is under pressure
(Core i7 2600, 16GB RAM, 1GB Radeon 7750)

What I am wondering is whether or not once I edit all the clips together can I render the whole thing out with markers at the start of each clip so that I can apply color effects at each marker reducing the amount of clips I am dealing with in one project.

Hopefully I have made sense here. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks,

Canon 550d, Sony Vegas Pro 10, After Effects CS5

According to several posts on the Sony Vegas forum, several clips on your timeline in DNxHD format is a problem.
Try MXF format instead. I use it all the time and Vegas loves it :)
