I’m just starting in the editing world, I have Vegas studio 9 platinum. It constantly crashes. I know the first thing everyone wants to know is what my settings are. It does not matter, it crashes what ever the settings are. Im running it on a freshly formatted windows 7 home (which I reformatted after vegas wouldn’t stop crashing in the hope it would help), with plenty of memory and free space. During rendering, CRASH…during previewing, CRASH…sometimes it gives an error, sometimes it just closes.
I tried to covert all the files on my timeline to .mov, uncompressed, as that is what comes off my digital camera, but still, crash. Crash crash crash. I don’t know what to do.
I’ve tried everything except switching to adobe premiere or eventually breaking down and getting a mac.
I have not installed any codecs (I heard they can interfere with Vegas) and I’m trying to use editable uncompressed .mov files, most are straight from my dslr (600D)
Words of advice?
Sould I try to upgrade to Vegas 10? Will that crash too? Is vegas notorious for crashing like Ive observed? Does Premiere have crashing issues? Adobie is more of a software company than Sony...are they more stable?
