I have used vegas 7 for some time and recently upgraded to Vegas Movie studio platinum 10 and also bought a Canon 600D that records as HD/.MOV files.
Previously I only edited Gopro footage and standard definition footage from an old video camera and there is no problem editing these together on a timeline.
Now I have Gopro footage shot in 1280x960 30 frames per second and some 1280x720 @60frames per second (MP4s) as well as footage from the Canon which is 1920x1088 (.MOV).
Being fairly clueless I just threw them all onto a timeline and started editing, this worked for sometime with no problem, however now the the program crashes whenever any timelines with the three types of files on them are opened (....ie the program seems to handle a small number of files but when it starts to get up to around 30 mixed files on the timeline it cant handle it).
does anyone have any ideas to get around this? Should I just convert the .MOV files into MP4? will that fix the problem? Is there much quality loss when doing this?
thanks for your time
Ill keep researching and if I come up with a simple answer ill post it here....
