Don, you're at the wrong end of the state. It's nice and peaceful down here in the country. Shoot, I can even see the stars!!!

BTW, Sleep? What is that?

Edward,
What are stars? All I see is smog!

Awww, maybe it's just automobile emissions! :-)

You know, I've driven thru your part of the state a few times, got a ticket once on 57 way down around Cairo on my way to Memphis.
Man I hate 57.

Pleasant Dreams!

Andy,
If you hold the control key down when opening Vegas, it will restore all of your settings to default. Beware, all of your settings will revert to default so don't do this if you want to save some. Hope this helps.

Just make sure to read the license that comes with the font. It is usually a readme.txt file. Some fonts are only licensed for personal use and require a small fee for commercial use. If you cannot find a license for the font, I would err on the side of caution and simply not use it.

I Think Edward Nailed It

Hey Edward:

I think you may be right. I had added then decided not to add programs in the past and that may be why some fonts stayed and some didn't. Thanks for all of your help and patience with me.

When dealing with me, does this old adage come to mind?

"A little bit of knowledge in the hands of a moron is dangerous!"

One More Thing...

Will Vegas 5.0 have any new upgrades making it worth purchasing?

I know that will change all Options - Preferences and screen layout settings but I'm not sure about the "presets". Let us know if it works.

Vegas Ram ?

Does the amount of Ram have much to do with playing out to tape?
I know this my be a open-ended question but after the project is rendered and looks good on the PVW mode and loaded in the write to tape section, Does Ram play much of a part ..And on another issue can someone recommend a hard drive for my Dell 2350 running Vegas maybe 160 gig

Thanks
You guys are so helpful

How much RAM do you have? Generally speaking, no - RAM would not affect the outputting of the file.

hmmmm....it depends. It takes RAM to render. I used to think 1 Gig was plenty, but, I've since seen some situations, like rendering individual still frames into a sequence, or RAM previewing, that really sucks up RAM. If you render and PTT in a single step, I disagree with Edward. 1 Gig is the minimum I would consider, 2 Gigs is better.

I only hane 512, never had a problem. Make sure your page frame is large enough, though...

I don't think ram plays a signifigant role in straight render speeds. The single most important factor is CPU. If your doing a ram render, sure it will help. Fast ram, faster ram render- more ram, the longer section you can render to ram.

When it comes to Printing to Tape ram isn't a factor at all. This is an action where you want a fast, defragged hd so you don't drop any frames on export. Though, again you don't "need" a SATA RAID 0 or the like. Things like 2 gigs of ram and Superfast HDs are hardware that will improve OVERALL performance- but in specifics in regards to Rendering to HD, and PTT are negligable.

1 Gig is the minimum I would consider, 2 Gigs is better.
People routinely run much less than 1 gig and render/ptt just fine.
