Hi All
Following a response on the Vegas forum saying that I don't have enough RAM for V17, I am trying to temporarily retreat to V13. Here I am still having the same issue that I had before. Could anyone tell me why, based on the MediaInfo info below, I would not be able to drag the visual aspect of this clip onto the timeline? (it only transfers the audio part of it which I don't want)...

Where did you get this video from ?
This is Variable Frame Rate video, which often will not work in many video editing programs.
99% of Variable Frame Rate video comes from mobile phones.

All Video Editing programs work with Constant Frame Rate video and only output Constant Frame Rate.
You need to convert any Variable frame rate videos into Constant frame rate, before you import into Vegas.

This could very well be the cause of your Vegas crashes as well !!!!!!!!!!!!
Especially once again, because you are only using Intel graphics.
:idea: Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.

Thanks Derek
So much to learn and know! I see that if I convert this using AVC I can choose the frame rate. Is 25 suitable?

Also, it was from twitter originally, downloaded and converted I think to MP4 using AVC.

I've gone into my MSP 17 and that clip hadn't actually been added to that project, so sadly that can't be the culprit for the crashing in v17. I've gone into v13 though, removed that clip and added the new one with a frame rate of 25, and it works! Yey! I think my best bet for now is probably going back to 13 to try and get this video done while I try and sort out the pc build.

Thanks Derek

The MediaInfo indicates your variable frame rate video is averaging 30 fps.
Technically 30 fps is what it should be converted to.

If your project is a 25 fps project, converting to 25 fps should be OK.
