okay, so I've had problems with mpeg-4 files before (Im using Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 9.0). these files can make the program crash (I recon its a codec problem that Ive never been able to solve), but things usually go well once the mp4 files have been deleted/converted.
Now, I've made a few backup project files but all of them keep on crashing. It takes a few minutes to open the files, and once open it wont let me edit anything or even render small parts. This comes up;
Now, a new message was shown; "the required windows media video codec is not installed". Now, there seems to be not only .mp4 files that are causing the problem but also .wmv. once i succeed to open a project file, some videos that used to work just fine are now shown only as a red rectangle;
I'm thinking of reinstalling the program, but will that still let me open the project files without loosing all of my work? And I have a bad feeling reinstalling wont change a thing since its seemingly a codec problem. Any ideas on what I can do? There are alot of video cuts in these project files that I wish to at least render, but right now it seems as if everything will go lost.
