    I noticed that the last bug fix was around 3rd May 2012 for build 682/683.
    Has anyone tried the latest build to find out if it runs better with most
    of the bugs fixed? I remember someone in this newsgroup having some
    problems due to bugs in this program.

  2. I've been running the latest 64-bit version for a while, now.
    I did have problems with the program crashing frequently as
    I approached completion of a project with my last video,
    "FLOLIAGE" - and some still frame-grabs are here --
    http://www.donferrario.com/ruether/FLOLIAGE.htm
    The filterings on the image clips were rather extreme, and I
    was working with 50Mbps .MP4 files in the final project form,
    so it was not the usual material I was working with...;-)

    Hi David.
    Are you thinking that the extra processing work might have been too much
    for Vegas Pro 11 to handle?
    Being a professional program it should be able to take the load but it
    would be difficult for the creators to test it in all the many conditions
    and it is a complex program.
    I still feel that they should make the previous version available when they
    upgrade Vegas Pro and offer a discount for those wanting to upgrade to
    version 11 when most of the bugs have been fixed.
    I like the pictures, it makes a change from the usual garden photos. I also
    like to experiment and find by adjusting the parameters of video effects
    and transitions I can create my own unique effects.

    One thing I'm wondering about is now they have made the stabilizer a video
    effect can it be removed later on if you don't like the result?

  4. Naw...!;-) Also, I "miss-spoke" - I had converted all the original
    28Mbps files (with the filters in place) to 50mbps .MP4 files for
    editing with...
    I 'spose, but I sure sent a LOT of notes to Sony with the crashes...;-)
    Maybe. I'm still kicking myself for not keeping ver. 9 on my computer
    and saving the last version of the project done with that, then
    copying that for opening on ver. 11 (since once opened with a newer
    version of Vegas, a project cannot be opened again on the older one).
    I was eager to use the GPU feature of 11, had "aged" my copy of 11,
    and had assumed that the bugs were mostly gone by the time I installed
    it - but, no-o-o-o-o....!
    Only if you kept the original, unmodified file...

    David, I have to correct you on this statement.
    Vegas does nothing to an older veg file unless you re-save it without doing anything else.
    That's why the recommendation when opening an older version file in a new version of Vegas is to immediately save it under a new name (e.g. Foliage-V11.veg) so that you know what it is.

  6. Yes, thanks. Unfortunately, all of my old projects converted to ver. 11
    projects when I dumped ver. 9 and installed ver. 11 - but I suppose I
    could (maybe?) reinstall ver. 9, reopen all the (many) old projects in
    ver. 9 (is that now possible?), and then save them(?) in ver. 9? (Me
    brain is "buzzing" - but fortunately, I don't care if all the old
    ver. 9 projects become ver. 11 projects...;-)

    So it seems that the main problem is that now and then Vegas Pro 11 stops
    working. I guess as long as you save your projects often then it may not be
    a major problem apart from having to start Vegas again. I have had the some
    problem with Vegas Pro 10 and sometimes if I wait a few minutes Vegas
    starts working again.

    [........................]
    It didn't just stop working. "POOF!", and suddenly it was GONE! 8^{
    At first with the project it would happen if I didn't save after
    every second or third change, then much later (toward the end),
    after EVERY change, then (VERY near the end, whew!), after the save
    it would "evaporate"(!!!), but be OK when the project was reopened.
    Irritating, but I was able to finish the project and the export high
    data-rate Blu-ray files and disks.

    That's not good : (
    Have you had a reply from Sony after sending in your error reports.
    It would be interesting to see if you have the same problems when you work
    on a less intensive project.
    Its unusual that it should happen that often and if it was that bad then
    Sony would not release version 11 into the public for fear that they get a
    lot of bad reports. I suspect it may depend on what type of computer system
    you are using and what you are trying to do with Vegas Pro 11. I hope in
    the end they fix the bugs that are related to our problems.

    I recently pushed harder Vegas Pro 10 in adding a lot of velocity
    envelopes, extra video effects and extra video and audio
    tracks. At the start of the video I had had four videos playing at once
    they were divided into smaller screens so they would fit on the main
    screen. A bit like picture in picture except there was four of them. Vegas
    seemed to handle he load. Sone parts I needed to compile so I could see the
    effect on my computer which causes the playback to be less smooth due to
    the speed of my processor. The first few times I compiled the four pictures
    effect it stopped but then when I removed programs running in the
    background there were no problems in compiling the video. I was impressed
    how I could slow down a part in the video and the way Vegas produced a slow
    smooth slow motion effect with out any jitter.

  12. Your comment about programs running in the background is interesting.
    I will need to look into that. Thanks.

    11 is STILL problematic - just checkout the various forums. that said,
    so is cs6.
    gone (apparently) are the days when the software did as it said it would
    on the box.
    we've all become PAYING beta testers. it doesn't bode well for future
    releases from any of them....

  14. Sigh...! I remember the early Premiere 4.4, which worked so well (and
    reliably) with DV-AVI, and even Elements 4 had some good aspects for
    use with HDV (EXCEPT that it did not the important "Smart Rendering"
    ability with it...). The new Elements is full of amateur "junk" and is
    quite repulsive to use for "serious" work - but the cheap Vegas still
    works in a "pro" way, even if it is more limited than Vegas Pro is...

    One of the worst features they added to a home user video editor such as
    Adobe Premiere Elements is the option to let the editor create a video, all
    the user has to do is to add the video and choose a theme then the editor
    takes over and automatically creates the video. Its fun to see the result
    but there is a very good chance you won't like the result. It does not
    teach the user anything about video editing and it robs him from the
    experience of editing.
