Hello, I am new to this forum but i read alot here.
I'm having some problems with the Vegas 8.0 Preview window. When i add multiple clips to the time line, and some transitions the application is starting to stutter alot. It's so slow i cannot even watch the preview normally. This starts at, lets say 3 or 4 clips. I cannot edit properly this way, the only way i can preview my project properly is by rendering the file each time i want to see it. This takes a very long time.
Also when i look at my CPU power it says its 100% and thats causing the trouble i guess. But cmon, 3 clips? I have a quite Ok computer for this i guess. Its a Athlon 3200+ (2,0 GHZ). 2GB DDR RAM, and 512MB videocard (X1800 PRO). Does anyone know what causes Vegas to be so slow? Where does he eat all the resources? The preview window is not on full quality, its draft - full or Preview - full.
Also i have my virtual mem set at 2048 (should be enough?). I've tried the tricks on this site ; Eugenia’s Rants and Thoughts » Blog Archive » Sony Vegas Tips & Tricks but it doesnt really work. The first tip there is about resizing and such but my video's are XviD compressed and 1024/576. If i'm gonna resize this its very ugly.
Can anyone help me out here?
