I'm using Vegas 4.0e on an XP Pro 1.6 cpu laptop w/plenty of memory. I am assembling a video production using about 300 jpg slides (taken in fine mode from a 5mp digital camera). Pics were brought into the vegas media pool and then are being inserted into the timeline, cut EXACTLY to certain beats in the music tracks. MY PROBLEM: on two different computers-both of them great for audio and video editing-playback of the program almost consistently produces a sync problem where the slides on the timeline get hung up for perhaps a quarter of a second or more. Generally, all the work that I do cutting the jpgs to the audio results in some jerky playback, loss of sync to the audio and a number of other things like this. I HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS HAPPEN WHEN I PRODUCE USING DV VIDEO EVENTS. This is the first time I've used a huge number of jpg slides for a production. I'm really miffed trying to figure out this problem. DOES ANYONE HAVE A SOLUTION that can help me? Thanks.
