I have been asking around for help on this a lot and i haven't really gotten a straight answer, this place looks like they can help me the most.
I have Sony Vegas 8 Pro and i created a video by using AVI clips. They play fine on Sony Vegas which is sort of surprising but when i went to render it the movie file played the AVI clips as a black screen. I tried rendering it in different formats but it didn't help. I asked for advice from multiple people and the first answer i got was Sony Vegas can't use AVI and they have to be converted, but that didn't make sense to me because why can I edit it but not be able to render it. The second answer was to download a codec, which also didn't help at all.
I would really like to know if theres anyway i can save my video without having to redo it all because i worked for a really long time on it and it would be such a waste to lose, and it just doesn't make sense how Sony Vegas will open AVI's but not save them. I'll appreciate any help or advice asap. Thanks.
