Sony Vegas Problems - Again...

Discussion in 'Professional Video Production' started by David Ruether, Aug 26, 2008.

  1. Here I go, again... All (that was important to me - the scene
    splitting function still didn't work well, but HDVSplit took care
    of that) seemed well with Sony Vegas Pro 8 with the new
    (beta) .dll installed (no more red/black frames or crashes), but
    I just tried saving five .m2t files as a single file (from one drive
    to another, no recompression needed anywhere) using two
    combinations of drives and four times I got a Windows
    "vegas80.exe fault, program must close" message at 55%
    completion (at 19 1/4 minutes) of the save of the 35 minute
    video. This nonsense kinda makes me just want to throw the
    whole works in the lake. I guess I will need to reinstall Ulead
    VideoStudio to complete this project - and this is getting
    quite ridiculous!

    Unlike much (if not most of) the video editing software I own and use, Vegas
    8 Pro is substantially supported by their developer, Sony, and their team in
    Madison Wisconsin is absolutely first rate. The forum they provide also has
    tons of experienced users.

    Just as I previously suggested when the red/black frame issue had you "at
    your wit's end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!", might I again suggest that you contact Sony
    directly as a registered owner seeking support as well as post a request for
    help in their forum. In my nearly 5 years of HDV editing with Vegas, I have
    contacted them several times, and also posed Canon HV20 compatibility issues
    to them, all of which they handled promptly and cheerfully. It is my opinion
    that they are extremely anxious to have a product which works well, and do
    what they can to provide adequate support. Unlike Ulead, Cyberlink, Nero,
    and Pinnacle, all of whom provide crappy off-shore support, you should be
    able to get some relief here.

    Good luck!

  3. Thanks. I had already posted the above on the Vegas forum,
    and added my computer info to my Sony account - but a direct
    Sony contact is also a good idea. Sometimes, though, it is just
    easier to use workarounds, especially if they are convenient to
    use and reliable, like HDVSplit (and likely VideoStudio, at this
    point...), rather than to try continually to debug buggy software...

    I agree David that splicing together 5 .m2t files is not a major deal,and
    programs like VideoRedo and the Ulead programs should be able to do that
    with no sweat. On the other hand, a program as elaborate as Vegas should
    ALSO be able to handle such a trivial task without getting such a drastic
    "program must close" abort. Hopefully Sony will find and fix that one

    A good workaround does indeed make the most sense if you just want to get
    the workflow accomplished. I personally would use VideoRedo for the job...
