Vegas Pro 8.0 won't accept UNCOMPRESSED AVI files
on Dec 2, 2010 at 2:51:31 pm

I've read the other posts regarding the problems people have had trying to get Vegas to recognise AVI files which use particular codecs.

However, in my case, Vegas won't accept (i.e will not display or allow editing of) an AVI file which is uncompressed i.e. I used no codec to render it. (I did not compress it as I like to keep things as pristine as possible until the final rendering of a film, at which point I do use codecs).

The file , about 2 GB, was rendered in Cyblerlink Power Director 8 as a WINDOWS-AVI file with no compression. Lesser packages, e.g. Magix Movie Maker Pro 15 and Adobe Premiere Elements 1.0 both handle this file fine. Shouldn't Vegas be abvle to handle something so generic as an uncompressed AVI file?

There are two options in Vegas under Options > Preferences > general that you can try enabling (only one at a time please) to see if they help.
The first is Use Microsoft DV codec and the second is Strictly conform to AVI2 specification.
My guess is that enabling one of these (probably the latter) will solve your problem.
