problems with .mkv files

For help and discussion concerning the Sony Vegas software.

problems with .mkv files

Postby elmo è qui » Sat May 03, 2014 9:54 am

Hello, I started using sony vegas recently and I have already found many troubles. I can't import .mkv files and so I started a research in the web to convert them in other formats. The result is that a lot of converters didn't see the .mkv files and the ones that can convert them, like avidemux and xilisoft hd video converter, don't display the subtitles of every .mkv file. I think the most important problem is with the configuration of hi10p .mkv files.
How can I use that kind of files in vegas if I dunno how to convert them without losing the subtitles (and the rate quality/weight)?
Thanks a lot!!! (hoping in an answer by mirkosp...)

Okay, I'm still in trouble... Even using avisynth and virtualdub I can't see the subtitles of hi10p .mkv files. Somebody with any idea to solve this problem? :awesome:

If you intent to hard-code subtitles, demux them with MKVtoolnix, then load into .avs script via AviSynth subtitle plugin: VSFilter or assrender;

Ugh, when I try to import the fake file .avi created thanks to Pismo File Mount and AviSynth Virtual File System it says to me that an error occurred while opening a codec... Even if the other files .avi that I have don't give me any problem if I try to open them... Where is the problem? :uhoh:

You can try Free Video Converter

My cousin uses this to convert Mkv to Mp4. The resulted MP4 should work with Sony Vegas.
Dont use fake avis, save yourself the frustration.

I tried this program and can confirm it works. When you import .mkv files or any video file, it disables subtitles by default but u can change it.
MP4 output settings are fine as is. Quality loss from conversion is minimal. Unless the original source has alot of noise.

As for Codec problems. Not sure what the cool cats use but just get cccp and quicktime if u dont already.

it doesn't work... With Free Video Converter I obtain a video where I can see only a full screen green color and the subtitles...
I think it's easier to solve the problem with avisynth... When I mout the .avs file in the folder there is also a file named error.log with this text:
Video stream :-
Duration: 34044 frames, 00:23:39.918
ColorSpace: YV12
Width:1280 pixels, Height: 720 pixels.
Frames per second: 23.9760 (24000/1001)
FieldBased (Separated) Video: No
Parity: Bottom field first.
Field order: Assumed Bottom Field First
No audio stream.
AvfsWavMediaInit: Clip has no audio.

Some idea? u.u

Sure!

Code: Select all
FFVideoSource("D:\epvari\file.mkv")
TextSub("D:\epvari\file.ass")

Dovresti fare clip lossless con virtualdub.
Evita di usare formati lossy in vegas, ne esci più sano di mente (per vari motivi).
Occhio che a convertire episodi interi ti ritroveresti con roba di qualche giga a episodio, proprio per questo ti suggerisco di fare clip con solo le scene che vuoi usare (puoi farle direttamente in avisynth con trim() oppure in virtualdub con le freccette nere sulla destra nei simboli in basso).
Come formato video potresti usare utvideo che tende a dare i migliori compromessi di velocità/compressione.
Nella lista ti ritroverai un po' di voci UTVideo; per il file in esame, visto che stai tenendo il 720p senza resize, usa YUV420 BT.709 VCM senza problemi e ricordati di specificare il predict median nelle configurazioni del codec.
Conta comunque che la qualità video dei file che stai usando è un po' quella che è. Dovresti aspettare i Blu-ray Disc e usare quelli, per svariate ragioni. A tal proposito, ti invito a leggere il regolamento del forum, contalo come un avvertimento.

For me the quality isn't a problem and in this case I think is more than acceptable.
I'll try to do so!

I've converted MKVs to MP4s with Zarx264gui with no problem. Not sure how well this will work for you but it's a suggestion
