Just following up on this. fyi, I did end up recreating my project, saving often with new names along the way, determined to find a file that that was corrupt. Never did find a corrupt file. But aha!!! I noticed as I kept adding files, orgnaizing the photos/videos in Customized Bins, the longer it took for Movie Studio to open the project. Even up to 12 minutes to open the project. At this time I was up to 22 Customized Bins (Movie Studio didn't seem to have a max number of bins allowed - I was able to create them). So, I collasped my Customized Bins down to 6 bins and my project started opening quickly like I would expect.

Today, when I opened Movie Studio, I read there is a major update that should take care of this problem "Application will no longer crash if the user has too many bins in Project Media". Nice! Just need to update it now...

Thanks again for your help!

Thanks for the report back :)
It sounds like you have definitely found the cause of your problem.

As I suspected, it was something not obvious and unique to your project.
I was unaware of this bug in the program and learnt about it the same time as yourself, when Magix released the new build version #167 for Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 16.
:idea: Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.
