Hey Guys, I'm new here, but hopefully I wont have too many problems and wont have to keep coming for answers haha. Who knows, maybe some day I'll be *useful*.
Anyway, so I'm using the trial version of Movie Studio 9.0, after nearly having a stroke/ rage-attack from trying to use Windows Movie Maker. I like this program, brings back memories of using FCP in high school.
So, I have a little camcorder that records to SD not DV tapes. anyway so I have these MOD files, and I convert them to AVI's
Either way, it works in vegas (though the AVI versions are always labelled 'Offline Media' in the timeline and have certain freezing points when I start splitting them... so I just work with the MOD's now which are working fine.)
Anyway, the clips play in Movie Studio, the timeline is all there, the whole movie plays, etc etc.
BUT, once I render and export it, all I have is a black screen with any audio that did NOT come from the video clips (ie: background song plays but not clip audio). I've tried Media Player and VLC.
The clips themselves play on my computer, and I've got a good collection of codecs (ffdshow, xvid, etc).
But no matter what I render the final movie as (AVI, WMV, MPEG-1/2) it remains the same.. a black screen with non clip audio...
What in the world is going on here?
Thanks alot everyone,
