Video play "stutters"
Suddenly, when I play a project in Vegas 6.0d, the playback stutters. It will pause, then jump ahead several frames. After a few seconds, it moves smoothly again for about 5 -10 seconds. Through all of this, the pointer on the timeline moves smoothly, but the image in the viewing panel does not. It acts as though it is out of memory and pauses while it catches up.
But my system has 2 GB of RAM, two P4 3 GHz processors, and it does this when no other applications are running.
When I render the project, it is fine as a final product. But being sure I have what I want is difficult under these circumstances.
Has anyone else experienced this?
One thing that came to mind is that I am using files recorded with Game Cam 1.4. Because this program drops the frame rate to about 8 FPS, I am using the Ctrl-drag on the clips to speed them up to an acceptable speed (this is from a flight simulator). Could this be the problem? If so, can anything be done about it?
