  • Vegas Pro 19 has gone bonkers on me!

    Posted by Rich Kutnick on May 9, 2024 at 9:49 pm

    Not doing as much editing as I have in the past, the other day I loaded two clips into VP 19 to synchronize using Pluraleyes. Never had a problem with Pluraleyes in the past, and I do have all of the VP 19 updates that ever were released. After Pluraleyes was finished I went into multicamera switching mode in VP 19, and when done the audio and video were a bit out of sync–strange…but if I muted the second camera’s video on the timeline the first camera’s audio and video went back to being sync’d. Now I have had a number of problems with VP 19 in the past that have been resolved, but this is a new one! To resolve the issue, I loaded my clips into VP 18 and was 100% successful in using Pluraleyes, so I copied/pasted everything into VP 19 and all appeared just fine. I read that Pluraleyes no longer is being supported, as well–any info on this? Any other sync software out there or that anyone recommends?

    Back to topic: When I opened the sync’d veg file in VP 19 this morning, I observed a number of strange phenomena–jittery clips, clips playing in reverse, loss of audio, etc., so I moved my work back to VP 18 without incident.

    Maybe my VP 19 install is haunted, with all of the problems I have experienced. Anyone else having problems with VP 19? Maybe I just should uninstall/reinstall it–any advice on how to do this so I will not lose my presets and customized desktop? I may purchase VP 22 if and when it comes out (is it planned for this year?), but for now any advice on making VP 19 usable once again would be most appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hey Rich,

    Yes, Pluraleyes is no more.

    I used to be number one fan of Red Giant, until after Maxon took it on a destructive path of ignoring their current customer base (litterally: Their sales office is “Don’t call us, we will call you – sometime, like never).

    Instead, I became a number one fan of Blender (Free). Although that has nothing to do with Pluraleyes, it kind of sends a message to Maxon that they might want to “change direction” in their approach to sales. (Sorry for that rant, but nice to get out of the system 🙂)

    My advice is that you keep using the work-flow with VP18, and cross your fingers that future Vegas versions will continue to be backward compatible.

    Alternatively, most of the higher end NLE’s has got good footage sync tools baked in to their base software. So may be worth investigating crossing over using those, or see if you can import project data from Avid, PPro, Davinci (Free) etc to Vegas 19?

    A REAL shame about the demise of Pluraleyes, although it does continue to work great in VP 18! Are you aware of any other such synchronization apps out there that compare??

    Unfortunately, Vegas Pro IS NOT backwards compatible–so what I saved in VP 19 had to be cut and pasted into VP 18. I just have to be careful NOT to open VP 19 again!!

    I’m NOT going to abandon ship, looking instead to upgrade to the latest VP if and when it becomes available this year. In my use of VP 19, though, it appeared that it was doomed from the start–always had a small-to-medium issue with it one way or another, which gradually developed into LARGE problems, but what I am experiencing now does not allow me to work at all in VP 19. So thank goodness for my VP 18!!
