Title is pretty much my problem, does anyone know of any issues related to this? Using 64-bit Vegas if that's relevant.
I'm track-motioning three different videos into one 1920x1080 frame. One of them is currently a FRAPS video, which plays beautifully at 60fps when it's in the project alone.
But as soon as I add one of the two Xvid conversions (one from a Camstudio capture, and one from a DV camera capture), the project bogs down and will not play smoothly at all.

Your system specs are inadequate for what you're trying to accomplish.
You need a very powerful system to play 3 layers of long-gop media. For each edit in each layer the CPU has to reconstruct video from as much as ten seconds away -- and that's before any effects such as tracking. You would have been better off leaving the DV alone, the other layers you may have to convert to an i-frame codec like cineform.
Render your timeline for smoother playback.
stop using xvid..............Got my retirement plans all set. Looks like I only have to work another 5 years after I die........
Sounds to me like you've encoded them strangely (e.g. LONG GOPs, as mentioned). What I don't understand: why you would use those Xvid conversions rather than your original Camstudio & DV captures? You're losing quality by going a generation down like that.
Especialy when doing multiple layers w/ trackmotion, your source assets should be ALL I-frame and fairly lightly compressed (lossless or visually lossless).
