Sony Vegas 13 Pro Crashes when I Import a Fraps Clip
on Jun 5, 2014 at 4:59:19 am

Right so this happened a while a go but it never has done it before this, when I go to import my fraps clip which is an AVI, it just stops responding then crashes doesn't import it and I can't do anything. Do I have to try a different recording software like Dxtory or what? I've tried reinstalling but it doesn't help. Anyone have a solution?

Fraps has always been a problematic format to edit on any
NLE, its an unpredictable format. sometimes it work, sometimes
it doesn't.

FRAPS is fine for capture but it's not good for editing. You should transcode your video to a format that's easier to edit like M-JPEG. You can use AviDemux 2.5 to do this:



If you use AviDemux, make sure it's version 2.5 because 2.6 creates M-JPEG files that Vegas can't open. :(

thanks! after I posted the help thread I downloaded one of these called handbrake and it worked, so it must be just AVI files that Vegas hates, which I also figured out it was AVI but is there anyway to get it to import AVI's? because it didn't do this 3 months ago it was perfectly fine so. Thanks for your help though! If there is no other way handbrake is fine only takes 5 minutes to convert so.

Vegas does not hate AVI's. We clearly highlighted to you that
FRAPS is not good for editing.

No, it hates AVI's from my experience. I've downloaded a youtube video in AVI with a youtube to AVI converter and it didn't work, But I did the exact same video but in MP4 and it worked.

[Wallace Preston] "No, it hates AVI's from my experience. I've downloaded a youtube video in AVI with a youtube to AVI converter and it didn't work, But I did the exact same video but in MP4 and it worked."
We should explain what's going on. AVI is a container, it's not a video format. Inside the container is video and audio that are often encoded in a particular format. The software that know how to encode and decode the format is called a codec which stands for enCOder and DECoder. There are certain codecs that are usually placed in an AVI container. Codecs like DV, MJPEG, CineForm, etc. But this doesn't stop someone from placing any codec in an AVI container. MPEG4 is a format that doesn't belong in an AVI container yet in the early days of MPEG4 codecs like DivX and XviD placed H.264 (MPEG4) in an AVI container. Vegas doesn't like this. So when you downloaded an MPEG4 in an AVI container from YouTube, Vegas wasn't expecting it. But when you downloaded the same MPEG4 video in an MP4 container, Vegas had no problems with it. That's because all MPEG4 video should now be in either an MP4 or MOV container and not an AVI container.

FRAPS is a perfectly fine codec for an AVI container for video capture. That doesn't make it a good codec for editing which is why we suggested you converted you video into an edit friendly format like M-JPEG.

So Vegas loves AVI's. It just doesn't like AVI's that contain MPEG4/H.264 or FRAPS codecs.

Or FICV of Mirillis' Action!

Anyway is there a Vegas-friendly video capturing tool at all?

lol! I guess so.

I use Camtasia and Vegas Pro has no problems with the TechSmith codec. Snagged might use the same codec (but I'm not sure).

This doesn't seem to work for me, I used the version that you specified and also the settings that you specified but it just converts the avi file into just "file" and I could only convert it as all files, nothing else. I also tried to import the file to sony vegas pro 13, but the only results where the program freezing and then ending up to stop responding, which but that time I have closed it. please could you help as I have been trying to sort this out all day and have had no progress. Thanks.

I'm sorry but I don't understand what that means. It should be creating an AVI file. Make sure that you are using File | Save | Save Video and not just saving the project file.
