Thread: Media showing up red in timeline

  1. #1

    Question Media showing up red in timeline

    I've had this problem since I upgraded to vegas 7. Everything was fine the first time I added media to it, but after closing vegas and opening my saved project, a lot of the files turned red in the timeline. Like this:

    Sometimes it fixes itself if I let it sit for a while then scroll through every frame letting it reload them, but if I start to edit things I always get an error and it closes. It's pretty frustrating.

    Does anyone know what might be causing this and know how to fix it?

    (I did a search on the forum and didn't seem to find any topics like this, sorry if I'm asking something that's already been solved.)

    I am guessing now, is it the media being off line, there is a setting in the properties box to enable or disable the option.

    That would be my guess, Was Vegas 7 install to the same location? If not it will have to look for each file.

    I can't seem to find where to disable offline media, so you might need to help me out with that one. :P

    Also, yep I have sony vegas installed in the same sony folder as 6. Under program files/sony. Or did you mean something else?

    It should be under options

    Thanks! I got that clicked off. But still sadly getting the red clips! For some reason it doesn't want to load them normally. I thought it was just the files I was using, so I tried others and still had the same issue. It's so odd!

    Will the clips still work in V6?

    You try, start V7 and hold the shift (or CTRL) and it should reset V7 to its defaults in case there has been a glitch

    or try a re-install.

    Default Vegas 6

    Hello everyone,
    nice to be here. . . I'm glad I found this forum. . .
    I have a dual monitor setup. . .
    My problem is slightly different in Vegas 6. . . the image shows fine in the timeline, but when I click on it on the timeline, the view on the monitor is red. At that point it locks up and eventually goes to "Program Not Responding" mode. . .
    * * *
    I tried moving the monitor image back to the single monitor; the red square remains. I tried adding the troublesome image to a new track; that operation caused the machine to lock up, no other images from the original timeline would display, and the process finally dropped to "Not Responding". . .

    Any assistance would certainly be appreciated. . .

    Until that time. . . aloha y'all. . . Earl J.
