AVI & Sony Vegas Pro: Import and Edit AVI Files in Sony Vegas Pro

Sony Vegas is a professional non-linear editing system originally published by Sonic Foundry that can be workable with Windows computers.

Although AVI is listed as one of the supported formats by Sony Vegas Pro. When you import AVI to Sony Vegas, you may come across lots of problems, such as nothing shows up on the screen, or there is only image or you only get sound in Sony Vegas Pro:

When ever i try to click and drag a avi file in to Vegas i get a no entry sign and it wont allow me to import it. then when i go to Vegas and press import and find the file and import it says "warning an error occurred whilst opining one or more files" and i cant work out what is going on.

"I'm new to Sony Vegas just saying. When i drag my avi file (which came from the ingame recorder) it comes up with a message of *none of the files dropped on vegas pro could be opened*."

AVI is a multimedia container format which may carry audio/visual data inside in virtually any compression scheme, including Full Frame (Uncompressed), Intel Real Time (Indeo), Cinepak, Motion JPEG, Editable MPEG, VDOWave, ClearVideo / RealVideo, QPEG, and MPEG-4 Video.

An easy way to understand this, is to imagine that an AVI video file is like a book. If the book (video container) is printed in English, then English is the language (video codec) you need to know and understand in order to read the book. However, if the book (video container) is written in an exotic language (less common video codec) that not many people speak/understand, then most people wont be able to read it. Which means you will have to translate (convert the video codec) into a language/codec you can understand before you can use it and import into your video editing program.

In order to successfully import, open and edit all kinds of AVI in Sony Vegas, we had better convert it to Vegas more friendly video format like MPEG-2 or WMV. If you temporarily have no idea about what to do, you can take Pavtube Video Converter (Best Video Converter Review) into consideration which is able to convert all kind of the AVI files in different codecs into MPEG-2 or WMV for Sony Vegas. The conversion is darn easy to be finished with only three clicks without loss of video quality.

Also with it you can adjust video and audio parameters, including the Bitrate of Video and Audio, the Codec of Video and Audio, Video Size, Sample Rate, Frame Rate, Audio Channels... make it more suitable for the Sony Vegas or other NLEs.

Besides Sony Vegas, this program can help you convert then import AVI video to Adobe Premiere ProPremeire ElementWindows Movie Maker, DaVinci Resolve and more NLEs.
