Black screen rendering mp4

Edwin-Marzan wrote on 5/15/2022, 11:01 AM

Greetings all,

I'm using Sony Vegas 12 which was working fine until I installed an SDR Program called SDR Console. Now the videos render in black. There is lots of info regarding this on YouTube. One suggestion was to remove and replace a dll named mcmp4plug2. Does anyone know if this is the correct way to fix this error and where to get the correct dll if so? Currently using Windows 10 without the ability to roll back upgrades due to lack of drive space/

Since you installed a new program that possibly made changes in your OS, which affects Vegas, have you uninstalled that particular software and reinstall Vegas?

Rule #1: Never leave yourself without a system restore or disc backup option.

Rule #2. When in doubt, refer to Rule #1.

I uninstalled the program but I'm unable to locate the installation files to reload Vegas. And as far as system restore I hadn't a clue that there was no more space for backup system files. What a bummer. I used to have like 20 restore points! Now none!! Perhaps it's time to upgrade to a new version. The version I had worked perfectly!

@Edwin-Marzan

Ten years ago was a good time to start the discipline of saving system image backups on to a drive that is not your boot disk. If you edit video, you should have from 2 to 186 of those around, half of which should be off-site.

Some big bidnesses are so philanthropic they will even let mortals use their software to do backups for free, just because.

How can you tell where the restore point files are located?
