    Every once in a while I’ll be editing a clip and then I’ll notice that the last frame is black. Whenever I try to edit, cut, or delete it (or even stop the cursor on it), Sony Vegas crashes.

    This was never too much of a problem until recently when I started importing jpeg image sequences into one window, exporting it as an mp4, then importing that into a new window. Without fail, these mp4 files all have black frames at the end that instantly crash Sony Vegas when I try to touch them. This makes it very difficult to do anything with them (obviously).

    Any idea what’s going on or how I can avoid it?

    That may be a bug that was fixed in a later update. The last version of Magix Vegas 14 (it stopped being Sony Vegas at version Pro 13) was build 270. You can download it at
