Sony Vegas to After Effects CS4 File Importing Issues
on Nov 10, 2012 at 3:15:54 pm

Okay,so I'm trying to import a Vegas Pro 11 project into AE CS4 as a .aaf (Avid Legacy File)
My vegas project is really massive and bulky.
Whenever I try to import it says out of memory and AE crashes
Does anyone know how to fix this?
I've tampered with the multiprocessing settings,even allocated HDDs as scratchdisks etc etc etc
Even cleaned up the registry and disks
How do I import it without getting any errors or it being crashed?
I worked so hard on the project and I don't want it to go to waste!
So can anyone give me some advice please?
My PC Specs:
512 MB Nvdia Geforce G210 Graphics Card
Intel Core 2 Duo [2 cores]
Windows 7 Home Basic 32 bit OS

There aren't any effects applied in the vegas project
Most of em are all plain hard cuts and at one or 2 instances are crossfades
There are a total of 4 tracks.3 Video tracks and 1 audio track.
No masks have been made.No pan/crops either
They're just stacked in a sequential manner
But yes the files I worked with in the project are mostly MP4
[WMV causes issues in AE for me]
The audio file is MP3

I've even closed instances of other programs in the task manager too
But it still says Error 217K Memory required
No background programs are running either

Other than going from Vegas to AE -- and I don't know a thing about that workflow -- I see two big problems:

1) you might think that 4 gigs is a lot of memory, but it's just barely sufficient for AE. It's a cinch you can't use multiprocessing.

2) You have bad files for AE 9. You have mp4 and mp3 files, and AE 9 will not play nice with either one. It will freak out. You'd need to convert the video to lossless files, and you'd have to convert audio to either aiff or wav files. No way around either one of them. You have to do it.
