Thread: Help Please

    Default Help Please

    I have taken a video on a mini dvd canon camcorder, the video lasts about 20mins.
    After finalizing I put the disk into pc. It appears as a vob. file which i then converted into an mpeg file and save to hard disk.
    Everything is OK until I try to play the mpeg file. It plays fine on windows media player and VLC player.
    The issue is that it is only telling me there is 2mins of film and when the timeline gets to the end of the 2mins it stops but the video continues to play to the end.

    I want to edit the video in vegas but again when i open it up in vegas it says there is only 2mins of video on the timeline and yet squeezed into the 2min timeline is the whole 20mins.
    PLease help as it is impossible to edit in this state.
    Any Ideas?
    Thank you.

    I don't believe so. My guess is Wil was asking for completeness and juust in case we discover a feature (ie bug) in one version not apparent in the other.

    Given the file, renames as an mpg plays OK in otrher apps, you might like to try the following (as a workaround NOT a solution which is what we want to aim for in the long run)

    (a) Download a trial of some other software. Attempt to import the DVD or mpg and write it out again in a variety of formats - see which, if any, Vegas will read correctly.


    (b) As above but download Virtual Dub (or one of many freebie video concersion tools) read in the "mpg" and export as avi. (Vegas will almost certainly read this)

    Get the program MPG to AVi that may help as AVI is a lot easier to edit with
