Hi everyone, any light anyone can shed on this is greatly appreciated.
Basicly.. I have been working with a hp computer editing with a budget version of Sony vegas, that being platinum 9.0, for the past year and have completed around 7 or 8 projects and had no real problems doing so and had some really great work produce with the software. However I shot a short film earlier last year using a sony z1 and a sony v1 and uploaded around 8 or 9 hours of footage onto an external hard drive and left the project for a while. I have recently come back to begin editing the project using the budget software and it just does not seem to be able to cope with it, it was fine at first now I get black areas when I play back on certain parts of the timelione, some files on the timeline are appearing red and the biggest oroblem is 90% of the time I go to continue my work on the project the program freezes and takes me the best part of ten minutes to close and exit. This is very frustrating as it was working fine until I got to around the 7 minute mark and I tried to work through it but it just kept getting worse to the point where it is not even possible to use 1 funtion on the program without it freezing. The film is only 9 minutes in all I have used the exact same proccess and completed 30minute weeding videos aswell as I frature documentary the I put together that was an hour long and these all run smoothely. The project is important to me so chances are I will wait a while till I can replace my entire set up get a high spec computer and run vegas pro and begin the project again but it would to know what is going on or if anyone has had these problems? I will provide my computer spec below.
Once again, I would be very greatfull for any feedback. Thanks
