Hope I've put this in the right thread, apologies if not.
If anyone can help, I'd be so grateful, I'm running on a tight deadline of making a video in Sony Vegas Studio HD Platinum 10. Up until now I've been making videos fine.
The current project is not working because there is so much lag, I can't sync video with audio. I'm recording video with a Panasonic SD60 hd camera, and I have a separate audio track. I should note though that even without the separate audio track, just watching the video with its own sound is lagging.
I'm running Windows 7 on a Dell XPS 15. 4GB of RAM, i5 Intel Core, around 250GB free on a 500GB hard drive.
I've been searching for hours for answers. I've watched practically every video on youtube but nothing helps. I've already set preview to 'half'. In fact, I've tried viewing in all settings but it doesn't help. I've already tried zooming out of the timeline, that didn't work. I've been through and tried the 'Build Dynamic RAM Preview' and that doesn't work either. I've also tried to render, and here is where I'm getting another problem.
An error message keeps popping up to tell me that the computer is low on memory and to close programs. There are no programs on the toolbar and not much taking any CPU in the background. I have disabled my antivirus to help. The CPU maxes out when trying to render.
I have managed to render at a lower quality, just to see how the lag looked. The video was behind the audio. Back in Vegas I used the 'Build Dynamic RAM Preview' and then the video was ahead of the audio.
I've done everything I can think of, including clearing temp files, cache, system cleanup, system defrag.
I know this is two problems in one post but I can't help thinking they're related. If anyone can help, thanks so much. I've been using Vegas fine up until this point.
