Thread: Video track

  1. #1

    Default Video track

    Hello. I got sony vegas pro 9.0 today and the first thing I notised was that i can't seem to get the video track showing down in the timeline.
    I created a video track down at the timeline and then i trided dragging the avi file to there but all that's showing is the audio track. What am I doing wrong?

    It doesn't sound like you're doing anything wrong.
    It sounds entirely possible that Vegas cannot handle the codec that was used to encode the video portion of the avi. (Welcome to the wacky world of digital video, where all avis are NOT created equal).

    Where did the file come from - in fact, get yourself a download of GSpot (it's free) and run the avi in it. That'll tell us what codec it is. Report bacl.

    (I have a hunch this is created using fraps or uses a XVid or DivX codec)

    There shouldn't be a problem with xvid codec, I use xvid's all the time... But I found something on yt for you [ame=]YouTube - .AVI Files not working in Sony Vegas?[/ame]
    Hope that helps.
