[Sony Vegas Pro 13 ] Video quality degrades upon import?
on Apr 25, 2015 at 10:30:17 am

Hello everyone,

When I import this AVI file into SVP13 and render it, I get these random artefacts and some other signs of quality degradation:

At first I thought this was introduce while rendering, but when I import the video and do nothing with, playing it in the preview window, I get the exact same artefacts:

The original video's quality is fine, but as soon as I import it into SVP13, the quality drops. I thought Sony Vegas was non-destructive?

I assume you captured this via a game recording device?
If so, these game capture devices don't capture video content that
is edit friendly at all, And will pose the same issue you are now
having with any NLE you use.

In the past I have done screen captures using MS Encoder 4 - Screen Capture" on a 2nd monitor. These files can be opened in Vegas, and then converted to XDCAM or some other format for editing.

Other times I used a 2nd computer capable of running something like a Blackmagic shuttle or Pcie capture card. Then use the Blackmagic capture tool to capture to uncompressed, or MJPEG. Connect the 2nd or 3 monitor connector from your gaming PC to the Blackmagic car, select clone monitor, and set to 1080p. Then on the 2nd PC, configure the Blackmagic software to capture the HD signal. MJPEG will edit well in Vegas, and the 2nd PC means you are not limiting the game FPS with capture load.

It looks like a codec problem. What codec does the video file use? (you can use a free tool like MediaInfo to find out) I assume it's a codec that Vegas Pro doesn't edit well and you're going to ned to transcode the footage to something that's edit friendly before you can edit it.

Thanks for the replies everyone!

I fixed it by recording WMV instead of AVI. I'd prefer AVI, but WMV doesn't seem to have any of the issues AVI has. The code is the Fast MPEG-2 Version 2 Code just in case you're curious.
