v9.0d crawls opening previous v9.0c veg files

I just updated both my 32-bit laptop and 64-bit PC to v9.0d. I have tried opening veg files from v9.0c on both of them and it takes forever. Probably 100x slower. For example, the 64-bit PC used to open them in seconds and now takes several minutes.

Good Afternoon,

Well, I down loaded the 64 bit on my 64 bit i7 machine and placed 32 on my older dual core machine.

First time I opened it took forever. Once saved it opened wuickly afterwards.

I then went to my computer found the file i wanted opened and "Opened With" and it took just seconds. the folder contains 165 gbytes of raw footage and graphics and stills.

The big issue is that this version will not open all the titles that are in the file!!

I reopened with 9.0c 32 bit and it opens the same way with all the files present, just as fast as the 64 bit (both just seconds)

The 9D 32 bit works fine until I tried to open a m2v file and it crashed.

It will not recognise my cineform files either.



Tomarrow I will throw together a 1 hour project with motion graphics stills and mt3 footage and run it in both and see.

I love the Vegas work flow when it is right, it is the best. Tomarrow I will know for certain.

I did not get any red frames!!!!!!! I had deleted my 64 bit off my machine because of that!! The project I tested with i could barely run it in 64 before, so there is improvement.


They do need to recognise at least legacy C project material completely!!!

This is a known issue with the new vegas 9d, I have a fault ticket in with sony as we speak (as do quite a few others)
meantime 9c will have to do as vegas 9d 64bit will only open the audio in the cineform avis. (eventually)

After my post I came across these other 3 posting on this issue that you were also involved in. Thanks for taking the time to update me.

I found a way to speed up loading of 9d

Warning!! Do NOT install the newest QuickTime...

Vegas Pro 9.0d released

When I modify and save a v9.0c veg on my 32-bit and then open it on the 64-bit, the 64-bit does the following:

- says "Not Responding" in the title bar within seconds and stays that way for a long time
- when it finally comes around it asks for the location of an mp3, mpg, a few jpg's and all of the AVI's. I've tried this several times with various modifications to the veg and each time it can't find that same files. What is also interesting is that the AVI's are all in the same folder, but Vegas doesn't recognize this and therefore it prompts for each.
- when you're done telling Vegas where the files are, it freezes at 16% for a long time.
- I can then save it on the 64-bit and reopen without the lost files, but still extremely slow to open

I will definitely be going back to v9.0c as this is unacceptable. Sony should pull this update or at least post a warning on the download screen.

Ken, please make sure that you file a trouble report as this is the only way that we can get Sony to fix these problems.

I uninstalled D from both my 32-bit and 64-bit Vegas and installed version C. Now veg file open as fast as they always have.

What is really interesting is that even version C projects opened, modified and save under version D, that opened slow in version D, now not only open, but open fast in version C.

Something else I noticed was that version D took about 30min to install on my 32-bit. But version C took just a few minutes!

For everyone having issues opening files in 9.0d, What KIND of files are on the timeline? Perhaps it's only one specific type of file that has the issue which is why many others are NOT seeing it.

I've seen many people complain but haven't seen anyone giving any details.

I wonder if there is some sort of specific system configuration that is a factor here. No matter what I try, I can't duplicate a problem with 9.0d. I have some complex project .veg files including a five camera multicam project with mixed video file types and a lot of filters applied. Everything I throw at it works fine. I'm not disagreeing with those who have reported problems. I'm just saying there is some sort of contributing factor that is causing the problems that some have reported. From what I have read on other forums, 9.0d works fine on most systems.

I use m2t files only on Vegas9d with some MP3 files, despite it's a big project about 18 hours it took an hour and 25 minutes to loaded the first time then it was just hanging with no response at all, restart it and it took 15 minutes or so to load up but that's okay because Vegas8 took that long to load the project,
but any time I touch anything on the timeline Vegas9d goes in limbo with no respond.
Back to Vegas8 !!!!!!

See, I'm suspicious of MOV files from the start. Plus, MOV and AVI can hold many different TYPES of file. For example, my AVI (containing DV) files may work where your AVI (containing Cineform) may not. I'm just throwing that out as two examples.

V9e Release notes say nothing about a fix

Other then the following to items, I see nothing pertaining to the v9d project files slow loading issue.

"Fixed an issue that caused AVI files to load slowly."

"Corrected a problem that could cause black frames in MOV files after installing the QuickTime 7.6.6 update."

Has anyone that was having the slow load issue, tried this new release?
