Hello everyone, I'm having a little difficulty with Sony Vegas today which I did not have before.
My computer specs most likely is not the cause:
GTX 980 Ti
0.5 GB SSD
6 TB HDD
Now this all started this morning when I tried to load 6 hours worth of video game recordings into vegas at once probably totaling around 30GB. After horrendous amounts of lag I decided to end task and restart my computer.
Now whenever I open up any small 30 minute video clip the lag persists. The lag happens when I do simple things such as try to move forward on the timeline to preview another clip and generally seems like the preview can no longer keep up with anything despite being perfectly fine before. CPU usage is at around 80-99% despite not even rendering anything. Does anyone know what could be happening?
I tried following some steps from previous posts with similar issues such as defragging the Hard Drive and such to no success.
It sounds as if Vegas does not like the footage you are trying to import. Try this. Import a short clip onto the timeline. Then move your cursor to another position and watch the Frame: ### at the bottom of your preview window. It should move to the new frame number almost instantly. If you see a number with trailing "....." and a delay before the frame number is displayed, then there is a good chance you Vegas is having a problem ingesting your footage because of a codec problem. Game footage seems especially problematic as evidenced by numerous threads reporting problems. At a minimum, you need to provide more information regarding your source footage (e.g. a screen shot from MediaInfo) and also your project settings just to make sure there is not a mis-match. You could also upload a short clip (a couple of minutes-not 30) for others to see if it chokes their system as well.
