Purchased Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.
Recorded 1080p video on D7000, and imported into new project folder.
Added single clip to timeline. Preview screen does not play video smoothly, and quickly flashes solid red, then sytays red, then the program stops responding. Happens repeatedly.
I am running fast quad core 3.4Ghz 64 bit PC, with Windows 7 64bit professional, and 8GB RAM.
PC systems shows less than 1/3 RAM is being used and processor is far from stretched. What is the reason for this appalling situation. I can't do ANYTHING with this at the moment.

The possible cause is the codec the D7000 shoots in is avc. AVC files are not meant for video editing. Its not the speed of the computer, the editing software can't deal with them because of the way AVC encodes the video... even thogh they are technically supported.

The solution as far as I've found is to create proxies for what you want to edit, edit those then replace the footage via the 'replace footage' option in the media manager and render the timeline from there.

I am no expert but I've gone through this as I've recently shot a lot on the sony nxcam which also shoots in this format. Most new HD video cameras do. If the cam came with a video management software it will probably play them back fine but of coarse you can't edit them. Apparently certain editing software have fixes for this but you also need a compatible and higher end graphics card to edit the original files.

It's just because your system is running out of memory and doesn't have enough to produce the frame. You're based saving, closing vegas and reopening. Perhaps even restarting if you want.

If you have many applications open, close as what you can.

Don't think so - my system has 8GB RAM installed and was only using 1/3 of that. I had nothing else running and there was plenty of memory available. Also the project had hardly anything in it yet - less than 2mins worth of media in the project folder and only one short clip in the timeline.
