Serious Vegas Problem - Help!!

Hi All,

I'm currently working on a HDV (PAL 1080/50i) project on Vegas (7.0d), but all is NOT going well :(

I've captured the footage from my Canon XHA1 (M2T files) but whenever I go to load the clips onto the timeline I get the following error after which Vegas shuts down if I click the 'ok' button:


Sony Vegas 7.0

Can anyone shed any light as to what the heck is going on :(

Thanks in advance!

I can't be sure your problem is related to what I've experienced, but, it sounds like it. Vegas seems to have a problem with HDV(m2t) files that have a discontinuous timecode in them. Discontinuous TC comes from the camera, many times when recording is paused, it fails to write an EOF on the clip and continues to record when the recording is restarted. This has caused Vegas to do a cold shut down on me, several times, when I tried to load the m2t file into the vegas timeline.

The fix is to run the offending m2t files thru some other program to split the clips at the TC break. I've been very successful doing this with the Cineform utility, HDLINK.

I've posted a bug report to SMS about this. Their reply indicated that nothing was wrong with their software, that it was a camera problem! sheesh! I remember back in the days of Sonic Foundry, the Madison boys were much more willing to understand and help out than now.

I've just installed the 7.0e update and it's working fine now (for the moment!)

Would what used to be called 'blackening the tape' help here? That is, before using the tape, record black on it all the way through, establishing continuous timecode on the tape. Then, when you use it, stopping and starting will not result in a non-continuous timecode . . . that's the theory.
