AVI to Sony Vegas Pro Issues

  • When importing AVI to Sony Vegas, popup message says missing codec error.
  • When opening AVI with Vegas Pro, get "Unsupported video format" message.
  • No video in Sony Vegas when importing an .avi, only audio.
  • Sony Vegas no video when importing an .avi file (ONLY sound). Installing every possible codec still could not solve the problems.
  • Importing AVI files into Sony Vegas I could only see the audio. After installing Divx and Xvid codec, AVI problem solves temporarily. Then Xvid codec won’t work and there is no video for AVI files in Sony Vegas.

Why I can’t Open AVI files with Sony Vegas Pro

Sony Vegas Pro Import Format

4K XAVC S, 4K XAVC, XDCAM EX, XDCAM Optical, DV, HDV, AVCHD, NXCAM, MOV, MP4, WMV, MPEG-1/2/4, H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC, WAV, FLAC, AAC, MP3, OGG, WMA, Surround Sound/5.1, BMP, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, OpenEXR-, DPX- and WDP image sequences
