How to set Autosave duration time? was created by BobH

Hi all,
In preferences on the General Tab you can tick the box to "Allow Autosave". My question is how often does the autosave cut in and is there a way to change the autosave duration?
Thanks

Which exact version of Vegas Pro are you using ?

Hello Derek, I should have said I am using VEGAS Pro 16. I have not upgraded to VP 17 yet.
Thanks

In Vegas Pro 16 "Auto-Save" saves a temporary copy of your project every 5 minutes.
If Vegas crashes, it will re-open the auto-saved copy of your project file.
This function does not re-save the original project file!

However, since Vegas Pro 16 was released, there is a new more advanced auto-save/backup function you can use, which does re-save your original project file.
Go to Tools/Advanced Save

Live Save will re-save the original file, however you need to be careful if you turn this on, because it will be continually re-saving your project.
Advanced Backup is probably the best option to use.

Go to Help/Contents and Index and search Advanced Backup
This will explain all the settings.

Thank you Derek, very helpful as always and I will give it a go later when I switch on. I ask because Vegas Pro sometimes crashes particularly when I use Titler Pro 5 in a project. My computer has a Ryzen 7 CPU, a Navidia 1060 graphics card and 32 GB of memory so it should be fine. I have already done a reset to clear the cache. If you have further suggestions I would be pleased to hear them. I hope you are well at present.
Very best wishes.

Titler Pro is often the cause of many crashes.

There are three things I recommend you do when using Titler Pro 5 a lot:
1. Regularly save your Vegas projects while editing.
Now you know how to automate this.

2. Reboot your computer regularly when working on big/complicated Vegas/Titler Pro projects and don't have other programs open when using Vegas.
This makes sure your RAM doesn't get filled with junk and cause a crash.

3. Clean/delete the NBFX Titler Pro temporary files cache.
Open Documents on your computer and enter this address to find the cache, then delete everything in the folder.
I have found that regularly cleaning this folder, stops Titler Pro from crashing as frequently.
It will regenerate when you re-open a saved project.

C:\Users\**your-user-name**\AppData\Local\Temp\Titler Pro

Hello Derek, just one more question related to this.
I use VP16. If I go to C:Users,My Name,AppData,Local,VEGAS Pro,16.0, what can I delete here? I see lots of .veg files, lots of .bin files and lots of .log files. There are a few other files and some folders at the top as well. I don't want to delete items which are essential to keep.
Thanks

It normally is perfectly safe to delete everything in the Temporary Files Cache.
If you delete everything in this folder, anything important will be regenerated the next time you open Vegas.
