Thread: SD video capture in Vegas 9.0 - frames dropping?

  1. Default SD video capture in Vegas 9.0 - frames dropping?

    I've always used Premier to capture video, but I'm starting to use Vegas because that's what I edit in, and it splits the clips up for me...

    I just bought an FX-1000, shot a whole event in SD because I have non-HD cameras I'm using in conjunction with my main angle, so I didn't want to deal with downconverting my main angle...

    Anyway, Usually I can just let the entire tape capture to the computer without any dropped frames (maybe 1 or 2 here and there) but now I'm getting 10-30 at a time in certain spots, this happens 4-8 times per tape?

    I switched back to Premier and didn't have the problem?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks1

    I don't know why this would occur with Vegas and not Premier.

    I can suggest you defrag your HD.
    Turn off background programs during capture such as anti virus.
    If possible capture on to a separate HD to the one your OS and program is on.

    Hope this helps in some way.

    Thank you for your reply!

    I had thought of those as well, but I am capturing to my separate raid array just like I am with premier. I tried capturing just after booting up the computer without any extra programs running, I don't have anti-virus.

    I can't defrag my raid array unfortunately.

    Thanks

    I use scenalyzer, I found it more reliable.

    I may try that... I just captured 2 full tapes with 0 frames dropped

    I like how vegas splits up the scenes in seperate files though.

    Errrrr...that's what Scenalyzer does. Just go into options to set it for that. For Vegas, try increasing the RAM under capture prefs from 20% to 80%. (Note that's capture, not the general prefs)
