Hi, I am a new user to Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum Ver 11 Build 220 and took delivery only yesterday.
I have previous experience with Pinnacle Studio v 10 but had read a lot of encouraging reviews about the Sony product and so decided to give it a go.
So far I have not managed to get a single video file accepted by VMS and wondered if I was doing something wrong?
I have researched for answers here and find that there may have been earlier issues with earlier version of VMS and also the file format of HDD storage i.e. FAT32 as opposed to NTFS. Also importing files from external drives other than the C drive appears to raise an issue.
That said, I can confirm that I am using the C drive formatted to NTFS to import relatively small phone camera clips without any success. The message I am repeatedly getting is "None of the files dropped on Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum could be opened". These files play perfectly in Windows Media Player anf VLC Media Player.
The real irony to this is the phone camera that recorded the files is a Sony Ericsson C902.
I would really like to be able to compile the many short clips I have here onto a DVD as they hold some great moments of my daughter at school events etc.
In addition to the .mp4 files I am having problems with, I am also getting similar problems with 3GPP files from a Nokia camera phone. Error message reads " Warning: An error occurred while opening one or more files. The reason for the error could not be determined" These also play perfectly in WMP and VLC MP
I also have some TV HDD recorded files that I would like to archive to DVD.
These are MPEG-2 TS (.ts) files. They play perfectly in Windows Media Player and VLC media player also, but they will not import into VMS either. The message for this rejection is "Warning: An error occurred while opening one or more files. The file could not be opened . Make sure the file exists and that you have access to the file/folder"
So far I have had a pretty dissapointing experience with VMS !!
I am sure it is something simple, I also accept that certain file formats can cause problems, but not usually when they play perfectly on freely available media players and are clearly not corrupted.
I have also noticed that one or two posts here refer to having the latest Quicktime player installed.
Do I need to have Quicktime installed in order for VMS to feed off Quiktime DLL files that are likely installed with Quicktime?
Any suggestions will be gratefully received. Many thanks.
