Thread: Vegas 8: No Preview Video shows?

    Default Vegas 8: No Preview Video shows?

    Ok, this is wierd. I have a typical AVI clip, I drag it to the editing window, timeline shows up, and when I preview it, I hear it, but I DON'T see it?

    The preview window is there, and simply does not display the video. When I play the video directly from the Media bin it previews fine, but after I drag it to the timeline, no video. Yow.

    Any help, ideas?

    You have a Compositing level selected. I can see the "X". And as you ARE attempting to do some green screen I would think you have applied this and are now "midway" in setting up your CHROMA KEYING Fx process - Am I right . .or am I right . ..

    First of remove the compositing X and check you can see your "actor" against the GScreen.

    Been here done EXACTLY the same.

    Now, I suggestion to all wanting to some support there? Do a screencast like our Chum? PLEASE!!!!

    Grazie

    Default That fixed it...

    Ok! While I have no idea what you just said, I did find the compositing mode feature, changed it to "Source" on my first track, and WHAMMO. Thanks!

    I have a LOT to learn here obviously, but I can now at least see the video. That's a great start!

    Any recommendations you might have for a tutorial program (or set of videos)?

    Thanks.

    I have the same problem as you. Do you know where the compositing mode feature is? That would really help! Thanks!

    For starters use the interactive tutorials under "Help"
    Download the manual.
    Read Vegas Editing Workshop by Douglas Spotted Eagle (lots of times)

    There are plenty of video tutorials for Vegas on YouTube.

    The VASST tutorials (from VASST - Home) are highly thought of though I haven't seen them so can't vouch.
