I can't open Red Dragon files in Vegas 12
on Aug 20, 2014 at 7:43:24 pm

When I try to import Red Dragon media files (5K widescreen resolution), I get a message saying 'Warning: an error occurred while opening one or more files. The reason for the error could not be determined'.

I have had no issues importing Red *Epic* R3D before, and I need to deliver an edit by Monday.

Please help/advise.

I was under the impression that Vegas 12 was cool with Red Dragon media.

Vegas 12 build 770.

Downloaded Vegas 13. Can't open in this either, despite others saying it is compatible.

That's 5K footage and Vegas resolution limit is 4K....So maybe that's
what causing the problem.

I edit 5K epic footage all the time with no hiccups.

Well then, something is probably wrong with those Red Dragon files!

They play perfectly in RedCineX and no errors were reported by our DIT.

Can you drop a small sample in Dropbox, just to see if any of us can play it?

Got it and tried.... Unfortunately this specific Red Dragon format seems
to not be compatible with Sony Vegas as yet.
Rest of other Red formats are good, but remember Red Dragon is a
fairly new release!

From Sony:

Hi William,

Thank you for writing back.

I have spoken to our QA team about this, but unfortunately, it appears that Vegas Pro 13 does not support footage from the RED Epic Dragon camera at this time, although it does support R3D footage from other cameras, such as the RED One or the RED Epic.
