Thread: Sony Vegas 7 and Avi Files

  1. Default Sony Vegas 7 and Avi Files

    I have an avi file(got it from a digicam) The movie is clear. But Sony Vegas 7 doesn't import AVI Files... I still have to convert it to mpeg. The mpeg movie doesnt have a very good quality unlike avi..

    So is there a way that Sony Vegas 7 can import avi files?

    Thanks for answering..

    Do you mean "capture" or "import"? I'm importing AVIs all day?

    The AVI is only the "wrapper" for the file. It is what is inside it that makes the difference. I could add an extension to a file such as Myfile.bum - but it would still be a MP4 or DivX or MPG - depending on what made it.

    Having the extension is great to tell s/w what NEXT to do - maybe! If I decided to use "*.bum", and in actual fact it was a WMV file, I would then have to instruct windows to use the extension to fire-up Windows Media Player. So, I don't! I keep to the convention.

    Get GSPot and get back to us and tell us what is inside this "AVI".

    Need to know more? Sorry .. .

    If you've deleted it then you won't see ANY ino about it! If you had it, then, do exactly as Grazie suggest - download and install GSpot and use that to examine the avi.

    I'm somewhat confused, you post a question asking how to get Vegas to "import" an AVI file. Two hours later, without waiting for an answer/suggestions, you've deleted it!
