Vegas keeps crashing??
on Jan 16, 2016 at 11:51:14 pm

Hey, so I am having huge issues with Sony Vegas Pro 12...
I am editing a short film that needs to be out by January 25th. I have just started editing it, but Vegas crashes every 5-10 minutes within use. The file type is .mts. The computer I'm using has a GTX 660, an AMD FX-6300, 16 gigs of ram, and a 1TB WD blue hard drive. I have never had an issue like this before. I do not want to have to convert file types if at all possible. I have mult-core rendering for playback enabled. I am at a loss.

Thanks for any responses.

Jake

There have been other threads on the issues with .MTS, so search and see if any of those help.

I would try the following:

Make sure you have the latest/final build of Vegas 12 installed.

Fully patch your windows, so no patches are hanging waiting for reboot.

Make sure your audio and GPU drivers are fully updated.

Use GPU-Z to verify your GPU Bus Interface Speed is operating at 16X speed correct for the card.

Use something like Speccy to make sure that the GPU or CPU is not running to hot during playback/editing.


Looking into converting your source .MTS files into XDCAM, HDCAM-SR-LITE, Cineform.AVI, XAVC-i or use FFMPEG to convert only your audio to PCM. The MTS format is probably AVCHD with an AC-3 sound track(which is really just multi-track MP3.)

Just converting your sound might be enough, and the Pro formats like XDCAM,HDCAM,XAVC, and Cineform use PCM audio.

I generally create a Camera Master folder, and an XDCAM folder in the projects. Then use a new default project to convert the media to XDCAM using one of the batch scripts in Vegas. You can easily swap the media out from the master folder to the XDCAM folder when starting the project.

I've got to believe that having two graphics cards from different manufacturers is not helping.

I would disable GPU acceleration in the Preferences and see if that helps. If not, remove the NVIDIA card and see if that helps.

You need to provide more information about your source files (screenshot from MediaInfo would be best), a screen shot of your project settings and also your timeline. If you simply copy the files from your camera's memory card, they are usually in MTS format. Although I've not had a problem reading MTS files directly in Vegas from my consumer grade Sony or Panasonic cameras, it is best to convert them to m2ts using the manufacturer's software. Another advantage, at least from Sony, is that they will combine multiple MTS files into a single file for long duration recordings.

Unless I misread, he only reports a single video card. The AMD FX-6300 is a CPU.

Oops... you're right. (nevermind).
