AVI in Vegas (again?) =(
on Oct 12, 2014 at 9:40:00 am

Hi there,

oh yes, I was looking for this problem in this forum and googled it alot, but unfortunately nobody could help me.


I recorded a game with "action". It's generated in an avi container and here are the infos about the file:

[Video] ID : 0
Format : FICV
Codec ID : FICV
Duration : 3mn 12s
Bit rate : 75.1 Mbps
Width : 1 280 pixels
Height : 720 pixels
Display aspect ratio : 16:9
Frame rate : 60.000 fps
Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 1.358
Stream size : 1.69 GiB (75%)

[Audio] ID : 1
Format : PCM
Format settings, Endianness : Little
Format settings, Sign : Signed
Codec ID : 00001000-0000-0100-8000-00AA00389B71
Duration : 3mn 12s
Bit rate mode : Constant
Bit rate : 24.6 Mbps
Channel count : 8 channels
Channel positions : Front: L C R, Side: L R, Back: L R, LFE
Sampling rate : 192 KHz
Bit depth : 16 bits
Stream size : 565 MiB (25%)
Alignment : Aligned on interleaves
Interleave, duration : 10 ms (0.60 video frame)



When I put it in Vegas (12), only the video stream will show up. Audio doesn't. The strange - and for me not understandable - thing is: If I direct extract the audio with the program "super", the wav-file looks like this:

[Audio] Format : PCM
Format settings, Endianness : Little
Format settings, Sign : Signed
Codec ID : 00001000-0000-0100-8000-00AA00389B71
Duration : 3mn 12s
Bit rate mode : Constant
Bit rate : 24.6 Mbps
Channel count : 8 channels
Channel positions : Front: L C R, Side: L R, Back: L R, LFE
Sampling rate : 192 KHz
Bit depth : 16 bits
Stream size : 565 MiB (100%)


So.. am I crazy, or is it the exact same audio type/file/thing I got in the AVI-container of my video? Yes, it is I think. And now I can add this to Vegas and it works. Of course this workaround is really circuitous and also I think it must be possible to just add the AVI and it works.... somehow.

Why doesn't Vegas bring all the codecs with it so that you don't have a problem? I don't understand this. And I thought if my normal windows media player can playback the file.. then there must be a codec for that, right? Why doesn't Vegas use it then? =(


Can you help me?

Remember AVI is a wrapper, meaning not all AVI's are the same. Whatever you
used to capture this AVI, uses a codec that Vegas does not interpret very well.
Therefore the workaround you have is what you gonna have to stick with, if
you gonna capture using that same device!
