H.264 in vegas 7?

Postby arjemma » Fri Jul 09, 2010 4:37 am

I try to open a H.264 mp4 file in vegas 7 but it can only read the sound.
Any idea what codecs I need?

but seriously, you'll need to convert it to lossless Lagarith or Lossless AVI in vdubmod first before Vegas will accept it.

Okay just saw I tried with a mpg file (wrong file) BUT it seems that virtualdub can't open H.264 files. I have installed everything in the amvapp but still can't open any H.264 files. Seems like none wanna help anyway :(

You need to use avisynth, By creating a .avs file and loading the video using FFVideoSource, You might also want to Read ErMaC & AbsoluteDestiny's Friendly AMV Guides , It's not 100% accurate, but gets the job done

Since you can't edit your posts here I have to write another one.
Also this is for a MEP. I'm putting it all together and one part is in H.264 and I need to find a way to include it in a MEP. Meaning vegas has to accept it. I read around the net that virtualdub can't convert H.264 files and apparently you shouldn't even try to convert it.
So I have no clue what to do.

Seems like I need vegas 9 or something. But vegas 9 is crappy.

VirtualDub can accept h.264, But you need the help of avisynth to do so.

Damn, don't believe everything you read on net.

Make .avs file (if you don't know how, say so)
Write this in it:

FFMpegSource("way to your file") - this filter might be outdated and you might want to search for FFMpegSource2

Open it in VirtualDub and it should open just fine (then subclip it and encode it into lagarith .avi). If it doesn't, post more details, but it's possible for sure - many of us do it almost regularly.
