Thread: Vegas Speed

  1. #1

    Default Vegas Speed

    I've had Vegas 5.0 for a while now and do all my projects with it. The past project and this project have been quite bothersome. I have a fast computer with plenty of memory/ram, etc..

    But this prject I'm doing now is a slideshow of about 250 pictures.. everything in the program takes forever to do. Not really "forever," but I'm used to clicking and something happens instantly. I find myself waiting a few seconds and it gets quite annoying when I have a lot of project left to do and it used to be able to move right along with me.

    Is there anything I can check out to see why its running like this? The pictures take a long time to load into the timeline too. Also, it affects if I open something outside of Vegas too. If I open a browser, play music, etc.

    Any ideas on how to get things back to normal or speed things up? Thanks in advance!

    Windows XP
    Pentium IV
    3.2 Ghz
    1 GB Ram

    As far as space.. I have an external hard drive with all my video clips on it.. so the C drive is basically free of anything.

    defragment you drives,
    check your vegas temp folders,
    check system teperatures

    External Drive is connected with USB2, so that should be fine.

    Umm, I'm probably due for a defrag, I'll do that tonight. And I thought I was somewhat computer literate, but can't seem to find a Vegas Temp folder.

    it depends where u've set them up or if u have set them up, in Vegas click options - preferences. At the bottom of the preferences window is the location of the temp folder.
