Thread: Vegas 8.0C projects can get too big?

    Default Vegas 8.0C projects can get too big?


    a quick question; is it possible that my vegas project(s) become to big for the program to handle? It happened for the second time now with something I am working on. It are both shorts that are about 15 minutes long, but have multiple layers (footage in JVC's Everio .MOD format; MPEG2, OGG for sound and JPEG for images). After updating to 8.0c, I thought the problems were gone, but they have come back.

    I have gone through error logs, image sizes, project properties and all, but on both projects vegas crashes a few seconds after the clips start to appear on the timeline (renaming them and leaving them offline seems to help, but I cannot find out if one of the clips has problems, for after I start getting them back online in the project, the crash almost seems to appear at random).

    With smaller projects (even with up to 8 video layers) there are no crashes. Very frustating.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    project itself? no, vegas is def. designed to have movie length projects... i think your machine may be too slow for it maybbe causing it to crash like not enough memory.

    Radeon HD6850

    Loose the .ogg - it's a manky open source codec I think for brown ricers, nerds and hippies.

    What are the mpegs??? I have found that vegas often wont tolerate decrypted DVDs.

    Can you say what the provenace of all your media is - with problems like this my first thought is manky media.

    The MPEGs are the raw MOD files created by my JVC Everio MGZ135.

    Frankly, I don't believe that the ogg cause a problem. First time I work with that format in Vegas and the problem already existed before.

    At the moment, my PC is and AMD 64 X2 6000+, 4GB ram and a Nvidia 8600GT videocard....I sure hope this is a modern enough pc to start Vegas and keep it running.

    Come to think of it; I have some more problems. Vegas itself always mentions (mcmpgvdec.dll) after a crash. And mpc (media player classic) has trouble playing the mod files too.

    Time to find out more.

    And thanks for the swift response. I appreciate it.

    Ok - prob not many media then.
    Vegas is ultra stable normally so it does sound like there may be a prob with something arcane.

    It's not the specs of your PC, they are easily good enough.

    It appears you are not alone - maybe some help in those links.

    V8 crashes and errors - The Digital Video Information Network
    Sony Vegas 8 Pro - Tech Support Forum
    Another Vegas crashing issue! : Sony Vegas
    Compatibility save - -- The online community for filmmaking

    and it goes on - google the dll name.

    hmmm...seems to me that a clip I was using gave me problems. Reason that I didn't find out earlier was that it was a clip that I moved during the rename process.

    Thanks for the help people!

    Glad you sorted - most vegas hiccups are not really the fault of the app but of manky media.

    Seems to me I was wrong....after removing some media and adding others later the project crashed again.

    Vegas give me more frustration than joy at the moment; if you spend hours debugging your project only to see it crashes after you can work on it again is very painful.

    I have never had a low memory message beofr a render. I think your PC may be poorly he said unhelpfully.

    I have found siny supprt to be helpfull in the past - I suggest you send sony the error log and description.
