Yeah Ted,

Welcome to the world of 'Unknown Vegas Errors.' There are many documented on this board, and to be honest, the users on this board know more, or are willing to explain more than SONY. But just for laughs, send Sony that error and if you get a response, that'll be your laugh for that day. I'm glad you got it worked out.

So, I figured it was time to try rendering the entire project since all of the pieces rendered correctly. It got to 27 percent and Vegas crashed.

Upon restarting, I received the following Exception error:

Saying OK to the exception error of course crashed Vegas again.

Next time I opened Vegas - it opened fine. I'm beginning to see a pattern here...

Just can't render in Vista.

Partioned my drive and installed XP in a dual-boot scenario. Installed Vegas and opened my project.

I rendered it and 2/3 of the way through it crashed.

I tried a second time and found the following error:

Sony Vegas Pro 8.0

So, there is either something wrong with my hardware, with Sony Vegas (I'm guessing NOT at this point), or ... my project.

There must be some part or parts of my project that are fighting with Vegas - time to do some more troubleshooting.

Ted, I'd bet on it being a Vegas problem.

You're likely running out of virtual-address space, which is like running out of memory, but it doesn't have so much to do with the amount of memory that you have on your system.

Definitely try rendering with one video rendering thread and only, say, 64MB of video preview cache (both in prefs).

If that still blows up in 8.0b, the file plug-ins are just being too darned greedy. There are several ways to inspect the metrics on the process to determine if this is the case, but it may be most prudent to get your project/media to someone who can debug the problem if you can do it.

Seemingly random crashes with the same project generally stem from memory allocation failures not being handled properly (i.e. telling the user that the application is low on memory) and blowing up later.

You can also render your track contents without filters or motion to uncompressed (or lightly compressed) avi's and bring them back in to do any compositing work. This is akin to "freezing" for audio, and it was something that we all used to have to live with in the days of limited system resources.

What you're running up against is probably the single strongest argument for 64-bit applications. Please keep us posted.

Thanks,
Matt

Matt, when is the promised 64-bit version of Vegas coming?
I know, NDA says you can't say anything :-(

I would like to add to the image aspect of the discussion I have had best luck with png's, not jpgs. Don't know the why or wherefore, just seems Vegas likes the png's best.

I'm close to slicing my veins too....
I have Sony Vegas Pro 7.0c It all worked fine, but now, when I'm editing my first short, it crashes, and crashes, and crashes, and... it's depressing.

Andris, consider that possibly a software or hardware change might be the thing to look into.

I had issues with 8 initially, but Vegas 7 was REALLY stable for so many of us. You might consider biting the bullet and wipe your hard drive clean and start over, saving your project files. Good luck, your crashes do sound very frustrating!

The last version of 7 was 7.0e. Might be work updating to the last version.

Of course Edward is right, as always! Didn't notice you didn't have latest version. Definitely try that!

Ok, thanks for your advice!

At the moment I'm having 2 instances of Vegas open.
One is the master which crashes all the time, the other is where I edit particular parts of the short and then just paste it into the master and try to save before everything crashes again.

I don't understand really. My computer is quite powerful, I'm using XP and there is no apparent reason for this to happen. I'm not even using that much effects, except for radial blur in a few scenes.

I now think it really was my computer. I divided my short into smaller fragments of 5 minutes each vegas file and no more crashing.
Maybe it's because I have very many small fragments with slightly variable effects applied to each separately, don't know...

I've got Core 2 Duo 6700 @ 2.66Ghz and 3.25GB of usable RAM.

Glad you found the solution. Your computer is certainly not weak, by Vegas standards. You have a very good processor. Certain tasks we give our PCs are more difficult for it to handle than we are aware. This will cause issues without our knowing why, oftentimes.

Check photo size

I had serious crashing problems when I first updated from Vegas 7 yo Vegas Pro 8. I wound up keeping 7 on the system for renders.

Basically, the problem was that render times were much longer in 8, and it crashed when trying to render a result to various formats, especially Windows Media. I contacted tech support and was advised to check photo sizes.

Turned out that the crashes usually occured when I had large photos, or a composite of several showing at once, when total horizontal res. went to about 4000 pixels.

The fix was resizing the photos such that the max across the image (HD) kept not too far from 2000 pixels.
