There seems to be two conversations here on the same subject. I don't have a problem with that. Some where up the thread I was asked and answered some questions about my set up. Was there a reply that I did not see? BTW I learned a lot about animating text through this web page. Thanks.

I know I provided information in two separate responses (#'s 3 & 6), listing both you (PETENOW) and (TBQLD). Though I may not have "directly" answered, between both replies would answer your original question "What is the best Graphics Card for Vegas Movie Studio"; yet my second post is probably more apt of an answer.

Happy Editing!

Thank you for your reply. I guess I will just drop the idea of buying a better video card until I work my way up to at least version 15. I am getting the impression that there is a world of difference between 14 and 15.

Pete,

I'm discovering that there is a "world of difference" between Pro 15 Edit and the upgrade to Pro 16 AND my "upgrade" to Nvidia RTX2060 from my Asus Radeon R9290 ... after I captured and changed all my settings to match my 15 the render in 16 went perfick! BUT my Preview is now crap in both 15 and 16 ... 15 was really good @ "Best Full (GPU?) ... now I still get a still frame at the end of a straight cut (dissolves seem to work fine, my 2nd favourite "transition" - hey, I got my first Super 8 in 1976 ... when I cut I still remember what it was!)

I also want to pass on that I downloaded the new (to me anyway) Creator Drivers from Nvidia (seems they just "rediscovered" us all :) )

I confess I'm not happy with all the wasted time (a very precious commodity) but I also know that new ... means settling in ... when (if?) I get it right I'll pop back here ... I like the website style! (Anyway Dr Zen is Oz - gotta be cool!)

BTW I run an i7, 32MB RAM, Asus MB Z97 Deluxe C & D drives SSD and 11 BPSlim HDD ... totalling 25+TB memory and of course an Nvidia RTX2060 (my g/son just upped the ante with a 2070!)

TB :)

To be clear I am using Vegas 14. I don't know if that is in the same family as Pro 15 and 16. I don't have that frozen last frame issue at all. Unless I do and I don't notice it. Let's hope I never notice it. I am looking for what will probably never happen. Just like at a car dealer ship I went to test drive the product before I buy. With Software that is pretty easy but with hardware, not even an option.

You say you use 32 meg of ram. I think you meant to say 32 gig of ram. Anyway, as I said before I will wait for the deal of the century to upgrade the program, but before I do I would question the Vegas people what video card they recommend. When I was setting up to edit sound many years ago I dealt with a company that stated that when I buy their software I must by a certain sound card. It worked like a charm because the software people recommended it.

Actually I will do that right now. I will look at what's available then ask what video card is best. Then wait for the deal of the century and then move ahead. Hopefully it won't take the whole century. I don't think I could wait that long.

We have had the opportunity to try this Radeon VII for a few days and the manufacturer's promises are fulfilled almost entirely. The equality with the RTX 2080 in the field of pure gaming is surprising, which shows that we are finally facing a real alternative to that NVIDIA domain in the high range.

Have you used this card with Vegas Movie Maker? If so then what version? I am using V14.

If you want better GPU performance in Vegas, you need to upgrade to version 15 or higher.
Versions 15, 16 and 17 use a new encoder called MAGIX AVC which is optimised for all modern Nvidia, AMD Radeon and Intel integrated graphics.
Version 14 only uses the old Mainconcept AVC encoder, which does not work with modern graphics cards.
Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.
Unplugging is the best way to find solutions to your problems.
Peace :)

I, on my "Signature Rig", have the AMD Radeon VII (Sapphire Brand), of which this GPU provides the necessary "horse-power" to run both Vegas Pro 15 Suite and Vegas Movie Studio 15 Suite. Plus, have DaVinci Resolve 16 Beta v.7, of which it runs fine as well. Currently have the latest "Adrenaline" 19.7.5 driver installed. All three programs run fine, accelerated GPU stuff per application where it has been developed, and I try not to mess with any settings for those "extra speed incentives". I prefer stability over the "super-fastness" that seems to be so prevalent today. On my other machine (i7-6800k Broadwell-E, 32 GB RAM, 1 x 1TB PCI-e for OS, 1 x 2TB PCI-e 'both NVME' for storage/render/cache) runs with a Founder's Edition RTX 2070 (using 431.70 Studio Driver), with Vegas Movie Studio 16 Suite and DR 16b7 as well. Again, haven't messed with various settings to get that "oh so fast feeling", want the stability. As in other posts here and at the Magix Vegas Forum, once done editing and ready to render, pick my template, rarely change any bit rate settings, and usually use the CPU render, and then go do something for a while. Less Artifacts, to me better quality (especially when rendering out for DVD or Blu-Ray), and less trouble-shooting if there are problems. Plus, watched a lot of the Doc's Tutorials, and read almost every post within this Forum and the Magix Vegas Forum (do follow the links in some posts that go out to Creative Cow and other sites as well - have found those "needed nuggets" of information by accident as well!)

Happy Editing!
