I'm running Vegas 11.0 on Win 7-64. We have 12G of RAM, 2T RAID disk, and a single i7 processor at 2.6GHz. RAM preview buffer reservation set low, and Vegas happily uses at least 7G during renders.
I experienced several crashes during editing - I'd hit the space bar to play a segment and crash! So now I'm manually saving every minute or so. The 5 minute default save interval is too wide for me - should be configurable.
Worst was the crash during rendering about 2 hours in to a 4.5 hour render. I was able to break the project into smaller chunks and got through it, but it set me back a day.
Anybody seen these problems with 11? When I dug in to the bugs they appeared to be "unhandled exceptions" - clearly incomplete software.
Any word from Sony on when a fix is coming? I must have sent a dozen bug reports; I hope they are not falling on deaf ears.
i've been getting a lot more crashes on closing down vegas pro 11 with the latest build...
also got issues with media fx self replicating. have emailed sony twice over the last 10 days and got no response so far...
Auto save is configurable: hold down the shift key while opening the options|preferences dialog. There will be a new tab called internal. In the box at the bottom enter AutoSave. Change the value to a shorter interval like 90,000. (1000 = 1 second).
