    I can get the music on, play it no problem.

    I can add as many clips as i want, edit them when i want but when i hit play it goes to the dreaded red screen and then doesnt respond. Aside from the fact that i had to get a new computer for all the editing we do. now im running into this lovely little problem that is still getting me NOWHERE

SOURCE: Vegas Movie Studio 9.0 Platinum Pro Pack - no audio coming up!

check in the audio track of the timeline. may be it has been disabled, or the volume level has been reduced.

Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 9.0 (Trial) is crashing whenever I open most video files. Either that, or they playback extremely slow. Help?


Well, first I would make sure my pc can handle it, that could do it. If your not sure, what are your specs? If you think it is good enough, I would email Sony. :)

Sony Vegas Movie studio 8.0 - I put in pictures, video and music, but only the music plays. No video or photos appear when I play the video


Because Sony Vegas support WMV, MPG (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4), MP4, MOV, ASF, SWF, FLV, etc. It doesn't support .avi format. So I want to know your video files format.

If ur video file format is .avi format or other video format that Sony Vegas doesn't support. We need convert AVI files into WMV, MPG, MP4, MOV supported by Sony Vegas. AVI to Sony Vegas is a good solution to import AVI to Sony Vegas for editing.

Video Converter Platinum is the most advanced AVI to Sony Vegas Converter software which can convert HD videos (inc.HD TS, HD MPG, HD MPEG, HD MP4, HD AVI), TOD, MOD, MTS, AVI (DivX, Xvid, etc.), QuickTime Video, 3GP, VOB, etc to Sony Vegas.
