I think Vegas can import wmv files...but why are you editing wmv files?

if it can't, then you can make an AviSynth script (using directShowSource("path_to_file") ) and load it into virtualdub(/mod) and convert the file that way.
I don't know if Vegas supports flash files...but if you looked just a little at the recent threads, you would have found more than one dealing with flv conversion

you make Avisynth scripts in a program like notepad.
when you save, name your file [insert name].avs

do you have AviSynth?
if you don't know, then you don't...and it can be found here

Oh so you use Notepad. OK notepad is cool. I open up Notepad, but what do I put into the notepad file before saving as an .avs ?

Code: Select all
DirectShowSource("path.wmv")

that's all, the double quotes are needed, and replace "path" with the full path to your wmv file. (ie C:\Documents and Settings\Use\Desktop\filename.wmv)

my path example would load my file named "filename.wmv" into whatever program you use to load the script into (VirtualDub(/Mod) in most cases)
which is located on my desktop

Okay, last time: <s>This is drugs.</s>

AVI is a <b>container format</b>.
DivX and XviD are <b>video codecs</b>.

Whether Sony Vegas can open an AVI file or not depends on the <b>codec</b> used for the video. Vegas does not "have problems with AVI".

Though I have not worked with the program myself, I am given to understand that it will accept AVIs encoded with HuffYUV, Lagarith, and the like with no problem; on the other hand, as is common with NLEs, it has problems with XviD, DivX, and other MPEG-4 ASP codecs.

Any questions?
