Vegas 14 problem importing Blackmagic hyperDeck mov files
on Mar 3, 2017 at 9:40:00 pm

Pretty new to Vegas 14 and also new to Blackmagic HyperDeck SSD recorders. Can't import these files successfully, video is fine but no audio. Just an empty envelope with no peaks. GSpot tells me that the file is a .mov file. GSpot doesn't recognize the audio file. What's the latest solution or workaround for this problem.

Download a utility called Media Info, then switch it to Text mode and post the media file info.

Screen shots and as much info you can provide as possible will help the community assist more.

Does the Blackmagic playback utility give you sound?

Did you verify that you were recording audio using the pass thru HDMI or SDI out interfaces? Those recorders are pretty simple and just record to formats that expect uncompressed audio in multiple channels. If there is no audio, there may not be audio recorded, or audio was at a very low level.

You might try selecting a 1 sec section of the audio and hit S. Then right click on the small audio clip and choose normalize from the options. If there is audio, normalize will raise the levels such that you can see your peaks. If you see audio at that point, you need to determine how to raise your audio levels so that you are not clipping where you need. Things like mic bumps and other pops in a long clip can make normalize not work well. Selecting a clipped section where good audio dialog is recorded, then normalizing that section, then expand the edges of that clip to the full clip is a good work around for normalizing audio. Then you can clip up the file into sub clips.

Thanks for reply
The clips play just fine on other media players such as Daum PotPlayer.
No, "normalize" has no effect.
The timeline looks like any other timeline, just no peaks, and no audio playback.
I have updated my Quicktime Pro.

Any help would be appreciated.

"Channel(s) : 16 channels" are you sure you are reading the channels with audio?

In vegas right click on the file properties and check what .DLL is being used to read the file.

LPCM is basic uncompressed audio, so your audio stack might be screwed with some 3rd party player, audio driver, or external audio device.

Do you have another machine you can load up a trial version of vegas, and see if that clean install reads the audio?
