Thanks for the reply, Rick. I lowered the dynamic ram and pretty much disabled the page file and it seems to be acting much better. Anyone have any knowledge of how Vegas interacts with RAM, virtual or none? I'd like to know why this all happened so I can figure out problems a bit better in the future.

vegas uses RAM primarily when you do a render to "RAM Preview", otherwise it uses RAM in small bits. Unless you do a RAm preview, you're better off NOT allocating more than 64k to RAM

Thanks! I appreciate it!

Don and Chris, thank you.

I still don't know what it is that was causing my problem, and it does visually look like a parent/child issue (though my other parent child stuff works fine).

AND, since I can create new video tracks in each file that work fine, I think I am going to leave it in the "it's a mystery category" and hope it doesn't come back to bite me in the behind later!

All is good.

Film panning mode

I am confused about how to pan to the corners. The help file states:
Quote:
If you're panning fully to a single speaker, you may notice that some signal is mixed to the opposite speaker. This is because the ideal placement for surround speakers does not match the representation in the surround panner. For example, panning to the front-left speaker produces a low-level signal in the rear-left speaker.

This is because your front-left speaker should be positioned 30 left of center and the speaker in the surround panner is located 45 left of center. To produce a true 45 left-of-center pan, the signal is panned between the front- and rear-left speaker.
Should I allow the signal to be mixed into the opposite speaker or not?

changing drive names so vegas automatically finds files

One solution is to assign the drive with the video source files on it the same letter as vegas is looking for. I have done this with several computer moves and backing up to external drives, and it is actually quite simple.

The only trick is that there is likely already a drive assigned the letter that you WANT to assign to your "video data" drive. You need to change the letter of that drive to make the letter you want available for your videodata drive.

In XP
right-click the my computer icon and go to "manage."
click on "disk management"
in the right hand panel, find the drive currently assigned to the letter you want to use.
right click the colored bar for that drive and goto "change drive letter"
click "change"
choose a letter that is not currently being used (like "k") and click OK
repeat the process with your videodata drive, assigning it the letter that you just freed up, that is the same letter that your originating computer used so Vegas will automatically find it.

you are done.

if you are into it, you can change the "k" drive back to the letter the computer initially assigned to your videodata drive, (it is free now that you have reassigned the videodata drive to the desired letter) but there is no technical need to.

Q: Record Time?

Just curious....

In the bottom right corner of Vegas, there is a box that says "Record Time xx.xx.xx.xx" with numbers obviously. What exactly is this a reading of? it has baffled me ever since I bought Vegas.

That is the length of AUDIO you could record on the target drive currently set to receive audio recordings direct to the timeline.

Sound waves Disappear in Merged Clips

I've been merging clips into .avi files by either rendering the clips into a new file or making a movie. Maybe there's a better way to do this. It works fine on the video, but the merged sound clips lose their wave information. I can hear the sound fine, but the sound clips are flatlines. Any help would be well appreciated.

Major annoyance. - Play button

Vegas 6
DVD architect 3.0(c)

I'm creating a simple, menu-based, dvd using an intro file, an animated menu background and two hour and a half video files.

The play button on the remote will not activate the main menu button, yet the Enter button will. In all the options featured on the "remote buttons" menu, "Play" is no-where to be found.

I'm not sure how I did it on the previous disc, but I did finally get the play button to work right, but not before I changed the text on the menu to "press enter," and sent that dvd off with the customer.

What is that extremely simple solution to this problem? I somehow keep missing it.

Thanks for your time.

DVD Architect 4.0a Exception Error

Dear all,

Everytime i click the "Make a DVD" button, I get an exception error and DVD Architect 4.0a (4.0 does the same thing as well) shuts down. I've tried searching everywhere for solutions but have not been able to find anything. Sony support has not replied even though it's been over a week now.

I'm really desperate especially with several projects coming up. My BIOS, drivers, OS, etc. are all current and up to date. I would really appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction or has any idea as to what the problem could possibly be.

Here're are the details:

Field Order Problem

When I use Sony YUV Codec (or huffyuv 2.21 - much better!!!) for rendering out, whatever I do, the rendered video is ALWAYS with "Upper Field FIrst".My miniDV shots in PAL Lower Field First, so I want to get same in the results. I tried to set Lower Field First in the project properties, then in the render window, but everytime I get Upper Filed First as final result. WHY? How to fix it?

Hello Plamen ,

I've got the same problem, not only with Huffyuv, but also with Cineform. In these cases I change the Media properties from "Upper field first" to "Progressive". So far it works - but I find it annoying.

Greeting Richard

All PAL standard video apart from DV is UFF, don't panic about it, it all works out correctly. If you render from PAL DV to Sony YUV the field order gets swapped. It has to.

Open captioning/subtitles in Vegas help

I've got a project that I need to add open captioning to, but my client wants a non-DVD master with the captioning as well. So it appears I can't use something like Vasst's Subtext since it's only meant for DVD subtitles. Does anyone have any suggestion for plugins that can help automate the addition of open captions to a Vegas project? Am I stuck using Sony Text generator? I'm new to the subtitles world so I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!
