Recently upgraded my camera from a 720p HD recording in AVI to 1080p in .MOV. My Sony Vegas edited the 720p stuff absolutely brilliantly. I seriously never had any problems. However, the new 1080p .MOV files really struggled in Vegas. Vegas lagged out, the preview screen flashed red, the preview pictures went red, sometimes I could just hear the sound and the whole picture would just be red. Eventually Vegas would crash with an error. One time windows popped up telling me I didn't have enough memory. This gave me an idea that I may not have enough RAM. Which was a reasonable suggestion, my computer about 5 and a half years old with only 2GB Ram. I scoured the internet for a few days and went on some forums. I never found any practical fixes for Vegas and was told I'll probably need new RAM. So this is exactly what I did. I now have 4GB ram in my computer as of today (however dxdiag says 3070 MB RAM - weird? Anyway, this hasn't really fixed anything.
Vegas is no longer crashing and not as laggy, but every clip flashes red alot at best and if not goes solid red. I really don't know what to do.
I have a program called Any Video Converter, which as you guess just converts video formats. I tried converting my .MOV files to see if that was the problem, but it completely destroyed the quality of my video so I never found out.
I've searched for ages but struggling to find the answers. Heres the specs if your interested.
Windows Vista 32 bit
6600 @ 2.40 gHz (2 CPUs), ~ 2.4ghz
Memory is 3070MB ram it says but should be 4GB?
