Sony Vegas 6 shuts down suddenly

Q: Sony Vegas 6 shuts down suddenly

I use Sony Vegas 6 for video editing. Today I opened the program and went to the "Import" menu, but the program shut down and disappeared. I reopened it and went back to the menu, but again the program closed. This keeps happening when I go to the "Import" menu - any way I can get it to stop?Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Preferred Solution: Sony Vegas 6 shuts down suddenly

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Sony Vegas 6 shuts down suddenly

Uninstall...reinstall...update Vegas 6 seems worth an effort.

This post is to hopefully throw some more light onto a problem that I've only just found a workaround for.
The workaround is not a fix by any means but it allows the software in question to work again.

Problem :
Sony Vegas 10.0c ?Stopped Working? and no amount of uninstall/reinstall and/or deleting all traces in the registry would fix the problem.
The problem is apparent with all versions of Sony Vegas prior to 10.0c, Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD, and associated packages (DVD Architect Studio 5.0 and Sound Forge Audio Studio 10.0 etc)

Diagnosis and workaround:
Turns out that there is some sort of conflict when Microsoft Office 2007 is installed too.
?WowExec.dll? in the Office install folder is the offending article and as soon as the dll is renamed (wowexec_bak.dll) the ?Stopped working? issue vanishes. I don?t know if either Microsoft and/or Sony have made a fix for this problem but renaming the WowExec.dll file is a temporary workaround. A few error messages may appear when running Vegas for the first time when WowExec.dll is disabled but it allows Vegas to run again.
This issue was on Windows XPSP3.
Anyone else encounter this problem? If so, is anyone aware of a permanent fix?

Its NOT wowexex.dll at all!! it's Grooveutil.dll !
I don't know what I was thinking but it wasn't this!

So I just downloaded Vegas 9.0b today and I get an error before the program can open saying that theres an internal error in the Common Language Runtime's Execution Engine and that the script host failed to initialize. How do I fix this?

A:Sony Vegas 9.0b Help

My first step would be to download it again, from a different place if possible, and try reinstalling it. Sounds like the download was corrupted.

It does the same thing that the standard ripple effect does. It closes gaps after you make cuts. Just make sure both your sound and video track or chosen.

hey guys, i need some help in vegas pro 9. i recently downloaded two short clips off of youtube using "youtube downloader" and it saved them as two .mp4 files. i imported them into vegas in an attempt to merge the two clips together for viewing simplicity. upon exporting, i noticed that the video quality DRASTICALLY dropped when i used the same format (.mp4), however, when i tried using .wmv, the quality was equal to the original. can someone explain this to me? (im a complete noob at video)

*also, can someone recommend a format that will yield the BEST quality, at all costs
**is there a hierarchy of video formats? if so, can someone tell me?

thx guys.

A:Sony Vegas Help!


I do not have that software, but it could be down to the export settings for that file type.

Both the links below are training videos provided by sony. The first one provides the basics of the Vegas program, but sony recommends using them to learn the basics.

Will vegas and this combo be good?


A:SONY Vegas

Your computer shouldn't have any problem running Vegas. There are, however, different versions: If you get the Studio version, it is basically a scaled-down version of it's big brother Vegas Pro. The price difference, however, might be daunting: Studio runs around$90 and Pro runs around $700. If you are a beginning at editing, then the Studio version would be the ticket. If you have already done some editing and no longer consider yourself a novice, then the Pro version is definitely the way to go. As I said before, it's an expensive alternative to Studio, but if you are a serious editor and plan on doing more than just a few home vid's...need I say more? It is, in my opinion, a full-featured editor with a small learning curve. Good luck!

I'm new here, was looking around google for a place to get help with my Sony issue >.o I hope AMV help is allowed.

Okay so..

I made a video in Sony Vegas. That was fine, I went to render it
and that was fine..except when I was done rendering it it became this.

^See all the blackouts between clips? THOSE USED TO HAVE CLIPS, it blacked out certain parts.

Now, I know it's not the codecs/formats. Because I made it with ONE MOVIE, not a bunch of episodes, one movie that was all one format.
That I split myself in Vegas. So that issue is out.

It's not the transistions, because clips that didn't have transistions messed up..
It's not looping, I turned that off and tried.
A friend said when they speed up or slow down clips that happens to them. But I need those sped up, so I tried to split the slowed down ones, STILL NOTHING. It shows the transistion/effects but not the clip.

It's not what I'm rendering it as either, tried all different ones.
It's not effects, took all those out and still nothing.
It's not space between the clips, zoomed in as far as it would go and there's no blank spaces.

Does anyone have that same problem or know what to do to fix it? >.<
I really need help ASAP, I can't make any AMVs till I get it fixed. It happens with all AMVs I render.

I am running on Windows XP, Service Pack 2.

Hey Everyone and thank you very much for visiting my thread, hopefully you'll be able to solve my problem....

I Have an HP Pavillion Laptop with Windows Vista 32bit SP2 Home Premium
I've had it for two years now and it's wonderful.

Well except for two things....
1) I'm a film major and I use Windows version of Adobe Premier, which is Sony Vegas Pro 9. The program was working fine when I first got it, but recently it continuously becomes non-responsive. I make one or two moves, and the whole program just freezes...the "window message" pops up and I have to close down the program.
-Now I?ve tried programming my computer making SV (sony vegas) the highest priority when it's running, but so far it doesn't help.
- I also run Adobe After Effects on my computer and it works perfectly fine, but I only use that for motion graphics instead of the video editing

2) When ever I do run SV, my fan goes crazy and my computer heats up! I bought an external fan, but it does not seem to help. (And yes I know my CPU fan is working properly because you can practically hear it. And I clean it every month)

...and in all honesty, i really don't want to spend $$$ for a Mac.

Because I know you?re going to ask here are my computer specs:
OS Name: Microsoft? Windows Vista? Home Premium
Version: 6.0.6002 Service Pack 2 Build 6002
System Model: HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook PC
System Type: X86-based PC
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor ... Read more

A:Bad Sony Vegas, Bad.

Welcome to Vista Forums!

I use Sony Vegas Pro 9 too, and iv'e never experienced anything like that...

When does the problem happen, like when your rendering the movie?

I'm just thinking here, when the program freezes, leave it for a while, 10 minutes maybe, when you try to close or stop the program from doing anything, it "confuses" the computer even more.

Hope this helps you,
And please remember to post back with what you have tried,
Daniel =)

Hi guys,
I have accidentally changed some settings in Vegas. For some reason when I add a video effect (ie brightness) to the clip, it will no longer show the effect of the video effect (on the timeline) until I render the clip. I've had all the settings go back to default layout but it still won't show up. Very frustrating. If anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone..I'm new here, yes I admit it.

Does anyone have any Sony Vegas knowledge? If so, I'm wondering if you can help me.

I'm running 6.0, and I am going crazy trying to composite a title. I simply want to add a label to a piece of video, but I cannot make the background transparent. When I follow the instructions to drag a preset Sony Text (with the globally recognized grey checkerboard transparent pattern) frame up onto my video timeline, the title 'page' completely covers my video. It's anything but transparent.

I hope that made sense, if not, let me know. Any help anyone might be able to provide would be GREATLY appreciated!

I plan on doing a lot of video editing this weekend. I make some video blogs for gamespot and I want to do at least 3 videos this weekend. I finally got Sony Vegas version 7 but I don't know how to use it.I had Windows Movie Maker but it crashed too many times and I was tired of it. I also installed the software that came with my webcam. It does basic editing. But do you think that I should keep Sony Vegas installed on my computer? I've been hearing that Sony Vegas is the best for video editing. Do you think that I should try Adobe Premiere?

A:Do you think that should I keep Sony Vegas?

I personally found Premiere Elements easier to use than Vegas but I think there will be a learning curve for all REAL video editors when compared to the more rudimentary video editing programs like WMM.

There is no "best" either. Its more like what do you specifically need and does that video editor do that better than the others or not. So I'm a Premiere Elements and Studio 11 user and Premiere allows for multiple video and audio track mixing a LOT better than Studio, BUT, Studio is unmatched when it comes to more complex clips where I want to make a bunch of clip edits. If I was looking for great stability, Premiere. If I was looking for high volume throughput of a lot of video, Studio, but I would definitely be sacrificing stability.

Please help me someone

A:I need help with Sony Vegas 10

a couple of things to check:

have you altered the setting for the monitor window? it should be set to "fit to window" or some wording similar ( I don't have Vegas but most editing software has the capability to change the size/view of the monitor window.

what are the initial settings of the project? if you are only seeing the top left of your recorded clip it sounds like the pixel dimensions of the project file are too small - they should match the source files' dimensions. If they don't, the stage is too small and can only show part of a clip unless you scale the clip down to suit. Vegas has a "match to source" function from memory: when setting up the project you can click on that and Vegas gives you a project with the settings matched to the source.

My Sony Vegas 10 begins to lag when importing video clips (.mov) into a new project. Some of the clips are all black and cannot be previewed at all. When I minimize the Sony vegas program, and maximize it again, there's a loading lag as well.

These video clips are sent to me from WeTransfer AND also downloaded from a FTP server via Filezilla...this problem ONLY applies to the video clips from Filezilla. The .mov files I get from WeTransfer are perfectly fine.

Do you think the problem is with Filezilla, or due to some setting in Windows?

This problem came up after restoring my computer.

Please help, so I can narrow down this process of elimination, thx!

A:Sony Vegas 10 Lag Issue

Before importing the downloaded video files from Filezilla to Sony Vegas do the video files play on their own? or are they dark? If they don't play then the file is corrupted, either from the sender or due to Filezilla.

A:Problems with Sony Vegas!

Is this a DEP (data exception prevention) error that's killing explorer? If so I find it happening more and more on my systems. Of course its designed to prevent a virus from executing from a "data" environment, but trying to access media files, especially video files from another drive on the network, external or even internal also triggers the DEP and since windows explorer is the vehicle, that's what gets killed.

You can try turning DEP for explorer and any other related programs off (System properties>Advanced>Performance settings>Data Execution Prevention) and see if that cures it or at least helps.

I need to open a .MOV file in Vegas 12 Pro, as I paid so much for the software, i figured it would be able to open a simple video and edit it. Instead it tells me it cannot find any .mov files, and if I rename them or convert them to a different format, it says "An error has occurred when opening one or more files." I have quicktime installed, so I know the movies run after they are converted, but sony cannot seem to open them. Anyone have a fix or some way to help?

A:Sony Vegas Pro 12 .MP4/MOV issues

MOV files are supported by Vegas. What is the source of the files?

I ask as I've seen issues in the past with files created by phones, cameras and other devices that use a commonly known extension, but the files do not meet the formats specs. In other words, the devices create a "mov" file, for example, but the file does not meet the specs of a mov file. Thus it's not really an mov file.

A:A few Sony Vegas questions.

If your project is very important or you've had hard drive problems I would turn back-up on.
