VP 18, 19, 20 (Trial)–Stuttering, Freezing, Wrong Clip in Preview
After getting back to editing a few days ago after a few months’ hiatus, I observed that in VP 19 Build 651 after working on the timeline for a few minutes the video begins to stutter, freeze, darken and then the screen starts showing the wrong clip. While continuing to play the clip it is evident that clip A should be playing but clip B is what I see. If I close VP 19 and open it again, everything is fine for a minute or two and then this anomaly reappears. I tested this project and a few others in VP 18 and VP 20 Trial. VP 20 Trial gives the same results, while VP 18 works fine for about 5 minutes before it also exhibits this problem. Has anyone else ever experienced these problems? WEIRD!!
Up to date on my NVIDIA 2060 Super video studio driver and Win 11, and considering the problem, I’m thinking that it may be a cache or buffer issue. If so, I believe there is a way to load either of these VP versions to set everything to default. Not wanting to lose my settings across the board, if I load VP 19 this way will it also affect VP 18, or will I be able to load VP 18 with all of my saved preferences, which I don’t want to give up?
So exactly how do I flush the cache/buffers, if this is in fact the problem?
Any help on these issues will be most appreciated, as I need to get back to work NOW! As it is, I currently only can work for a few minutes in either of these VP versions before I have to close and reopen the app–this is the only way it works, but will cause me HOURS of extra time to edit.
Thanks in advance!
