  • Vegas 8.1

    I've just installed Vista 64, Edius 5 and Sony Vegas 8.1. When I try to open a Canopus AVI in Vegas, the audio comes in but no video. I've tried SD video and HDV. Some is HQ AVI.

    I just found the Canopus Playback Codec Pack in the General Downloads. Will that give Vegas the codec it needs without messing up Edius 5?

    Edius runs like a champ on this rig. 5 HD tracks in MultiCam mode are right at the limit. I'll take that!

    Since you have Edius installed, you should not need the Playback Codec DL. Maybe try exporting from Edius in Uncompressed in stead of Canopus HQ and see if Vegas will read it.

      Is Edius open at the same time?

        Vegas 8

        Here's an update on this. I installed the 32 bit version, Vegas 8.0c. Video shows up and plays fine. In their 64 bit version 8.1, it reports "Video: Stream attributes cannot be determined." I guess Sony will have to tell me what's going on. The result is the same for both DV AVI, Canopus HQ AVI, in HDV or SD format. Oh yeah, I'm not running Edius when Vegas is running.

          Canopus HQ 64 bit codec?

          I am still unable to open Canopus HQ AVI files in Sony Vegas 8.1 under Vista x64. They run fine in Edius, Vegas 8.0c 32 bit and in the Windows Media Player. I uploaded a sample file for Sony to test and they gave me this reply. So the question is, is there such a thing as a 64 bit CanopusHQ codec?

          Thank you for contacting Sony Creative Software.

          The AVI was created using a the Canopus HQ codec. In order to run properly on 64 bit OS platform, supporting partner offerings, like hardware and plug-ins, must also be 64-bit capable.

          I recommend this work around:

          Double click on the video footage so that it is highlighted. Then go to File > Render As and select "Video for Windows (AVI)" for the file format. Click on the Template drop down and select the uncompressed video template. After rendering, you may replace the footage on your timeline with the newly rendered footage.

            It's possible (likely) that because the Canopus HQ decoder is not 64-bit native, Vegas can't rely on it for decoding the stream (is Vegas 8.1 64-bit native?).

              Vegas 8.1

              It's supposed to be. Their Version 8.0 is 32 bit and 8.1 is 64 bit. Like I said, on that Vista x64 machine, Vegas 8.0 opens the CanopusHQ AVIs fine.

                I'd say that's what it is then - it is a similar reason to why you don't get thumbnails immediately when browsing Canopus HQ clips in Vista 64 (with thumbnails enabled).

                    64 bit Vegas

                    So, the solution is to wait for a 64 bit Canopus HQ codec? When is that scheduled to happen?

                    Thanks for the info.
