Unable to import MOV files (again!)

Julius_ wrote on 12/12/2023, 8:07 AM

In V21 latest and greatest update, I cannot bring these mov files into my timeline.
Footage came from a nikon z6 camera and what I can't figure out is that another nikon z6 camera I was able to import into Vegas (?!?)

I have the Enable Quicktime plugin enabled

@Julius_ Tried the second not working one.

No I can't get it to work, it shows the first frame but nothing after.

PS, the .mov does play in my other cheaper Magix Movie editor & Handbrake converted it ok to MP4.

@Julius_
On my laptop from signature with all important settings default, there is no problem to add and play both files in Vegas pro 21 latest build, look

I doubt that Legacy AVC Decoding will recognize a profile of High@L6.1. So, clear checkmark for Legacy AVC Decoding on the File I/O tab.

I can open the problem file.

Playing here too. The only one I tried was the one "No Works". Screen shot while playing the timeline.

The second file (330 Mbps) is almost certainly trying to build a proxy when you import it into Vegas. There is little notice of this save for the progress bar. Is this perhaps what is causing your stall?

Julius_ wrote on 12/12/2023, 3:51 PM

Thank you John...I uncheck the AVC legacy decoding and I am able to play the short file! I had turned that on because of some playback issues. Weird that one file can be opened and not the other.
Mark-y: No its not trying to build any proxy file.

 

Update: I am able to put the mov on the timeline with AVC decoding unchecked, but now my playback is so slow even in draft mode:(

@Julius_ My AVC legacy decoding was unticked & couldn't play the file in my pic earlier & if I go to the Project Media tab - Create Proxy I get a red screen,. 🤷‍♂️

Former user wrote on 12/13/2023, 1:24 AM

@Former user Yeah another AVC ALL-I black frame hellscape. running default with Nvidia GPU decoder. The interesting thing is that it breaks Vegas. I screen recorded the problem started a new project imported recording and now that was flickering and then completely a black screen just as the original bad file played.

Restarted Vegas and my screen recording was now playing fine.
