This started happening a few days ago and now its getting worse. Seems like its the MOV Codec. I know that there is a Legacy Quicktime issue and that older MOV files have been problematic on both Adobe and Vegas.
However, this is a new 6D clip I just shot. The imported clip I was testing for Chroma Key is flickering and then blacking out.
- Deprecated Quicktime enabled
- Updated Codecs
- Updated Drivers
- No new Vegas update
I decided to open Vegas 17 to see if the clip would play there and it did so it seems Vegas 18 specific.
Additionally, I just rendered a clip in Media Encoder from the Canon MOV file to a Cineform AVI file. Dropped them into the same timeline and MOV files are stalling and Cineform is clean. I will do this for now.
The root of the reason many of us used Vegas back in the day was that we could drop in native codecs into a timeline saving a ton of time. With most projects I am trying to convert to an intermediate codec these days. This current project I was using conversion to Magic Intermediate.
I had some broll mov clips I was trying to render to this Codec and also had issues. So I ended up just having to use the original.
I can't even import a native new mov file and convert to Magix Intermediate Codec.
So for now I will start converting in Media Encoder to Cineform AVI.
The problem of course is that I am in the middle of this project.
Obviously, In an ideal world, "What Imports into Vegas stays in Vegas." =)
I import the file, convert it to Magix Intermediate and then edit from there.
Please let me know your thoughts.
