      So, i’ve been recording some gameplay with DxTory with an x264vfw codec.

      The end result is in an .avi file which is about 48 minutes long, 9,1GB large.

      Im doing this in Vegas 9.0 Pro because 10.0 doesent support x264 anymore and i understand that it takes some time to load such a large file, but i really cant work with it.

      Everytime i try to jump to a different time in the timeline it takes about 10 seconds do even get there and to preview the video is impossible, it lags extremely much and most of the time i get “Sony Vegas 9.0 dont respond” and the program crash.

      So now im wondering if it is the file thats the problem or just the sheer size of the file? I’ve been working with FRAPS files before and made 3-4 min long videos, where only 45 seconds is about 4GB, so i dont understand why the 9GB file would be a problem?

      Also, when i cut down the video to about 15 seconds, it still lags and i cant preview anything, so i really could use som help here.

      Thx!

      I use version 8.0c of Vegas Pro and routinely work with files that are two hours or more in length — 25-30gb. I’ve never experienced the lag that you’re describing.

      So, I suspect that the problem lies in your computer, or in the way you have Vegas configured, more likely than not the former. I’m presently using Windows 7.0 on my computer although I used to use Vegas 4.0 and XP and never had problems either.

      You might search the Sony Vegas forum for threads discussing buffer size in your Vegas setup; incorrect allocation of memory can negatively impact certain functions in the program. There are also threads discussing slow performance generally which might prove helpful.

      If you’re joining the Vegas forum for the first time, be sure to include all the specs regarding your computer setup as this will help forum members diagnose your problem.
