So, i've been recording some gameplay with DxTory with an x264vfw codec.
The end result is in an .avi file which is about 48 minutes long, 9,1GB large.
Also, i've done a new recording where the file is 23 minutes long, 6,48GB in size just to be sure that it isnt the first file thats the problem.
Im doing this in Vegas 9.0 Pro because 10.0 doesent support x264 anymore and i understand that it takes some time to load such a large file, but i really cant work with it.
Everytime i try to jump to a different time in the timeline it takes about 10 seconds do even get there and to preview the video is impossible, it lags extremely much and most of the time i get "Sony Vegas 9.0 dont respond" and the program crash.
So now im wondering if it is the file thats the problem or just the sheer size of the file? I've been working with FRAPS files before and made 3-4 min long videos, where only 45 seconds is about 4GB, so i dont understand why the 9GB file would be a problem?
When i cut down the video to about 15 seconds, it still lags and i cant preview anything, so i really could use som help here.
I've changed the preview settings to very low quality, with no different result.
When i record with the same codec and cut it off after about 10 seconds i can work with the file without a problem, but when i get up to that 15-20 minute mark it all goes to hell.
Could really use some help here!
