  • Vegas 17 confised when printing to tape.

    Posted by Sebastian Fudali on January 15, 2024 at 8:02 pm


    I use the function of Print to Tape on a daily basis, but Vegas 17 is simply just fickle.

    I always use Vegas-made DV file and the bahaviour of Vegas is erratic, one time it prints fine, the other I get an error that over 80% of the sequence needs to be rendered, or it goes to rendering short sequences of avi with continous 4 digit numbers.

    And yes, I always check the fullscreen/widescreen and PAL/NTSC settings.

    Ad worst of all, sometimes out of the blue the video stops being supplied out and there is only audio and I have to restart the recording process.

    Restarting Vegas and rebooting the computer does not appear to be a factor.

    I operate on W10.

    What are the specs of your computer? Have you tried uninstalling or reinstalling the app? Because it seems to be some sort of glitch that is preventing you from doing what you usually do because 80% needs to be rendered. If it has worked for you before and then suddenly getting that glitch, perhaps uninstalling and reinstalling Vegas 17 will help eliminate the problem. Even updating Vegas to the latest if you can afford to may be able to eliminate the problem too. I wish you the best of luck with this man!

    The specs will have to wait, as the laptop died independently.

    The problem occurs at random, sometimes on first try, sometimes after printing successfully to several tapes.

    I have already upgraded from 15 to 17.

    The new GUI in newer versions is different and the project settings no longer include older resolutions, especially DV.

    In other words, since the GUI is different from Sony Vegas 15 to 17, does that mean you have been having this issue after you upgraded? Or you had this issue before you updated to Vegas 17?
