Preview Window in 8.0c "Broken?' and filetype issues.

Mabey I'm missing something but....

Installed Pro 8.0c over b yesterday and have noticed that I if I try to preview XHA1 .m2t clips in the explorer they do not show video in the project preview window like they should. Only audio of clips plays but video preview does not. The video preview screen does shrink to a smaller size though for some reason. Used to work just fine in 8.0b.

Doesn't make a difference if they are 24f, 30f, 60i files, all .m2t's do not show the video in preview.

With these .m2t's they work fine once placed on the timeline. They show in the preview and work like always.

I was messing with the trimmer last night when I first installed the update just to check out new features.....could this effect the preview window?

FINALLY THE REAL KICKER.....

I cannot preview or place .mov files on the timeline....it comes up with a 'unsupported format' popup window. So somehow I am no longer able to import Quicktime files at all!!
This goes for .mpg's and .wmvs as well...cannot use anymore in Vegas.

This is the same for cineform .avi's too. I can only preview audio from the explorer, with a 'video attributes could not be determined' message in the bottom left of the explorer tab. When trying to place the .avi file on the timeline only the audio track of the clip comes into the project.

So my question is DOES ANYONE KNOW WHATS GOING ON??

I installed the update from 8.0b in hopes that it would cure the issues I had previously with Canon XHA1 24f files (could not capture/memory leak issues or limitation to allowable # of files on timeline) And last night was overjoyed to find that the update had seemed to solve those issues. I had 188 24f files on the timeline with only 900Mb page file memory usage and thought, 'wow it's fixed finally..let's see if it can capture 24f...SUCCESS!!' But now I am stuck with the reality that it seems that I missed a glaring issue with the new update and may have to go back to 8.0b with it's limitations and Vegas 7 for 24f capture because Vegas 8.0c seems broken.

If anyone has any insight PLEASE...fill me in...

It's a FEATURE of the new trimmer window. If you look in the read-me file you'll find the answer. You either need to undock the trimmer (or put it in a separate docking area) or you need to turn off the preview option in the trimmer so it will show properly.


"When the Show Video Monitor button in the Trimmer window is selected, video that you preview from the Vegas Explorer and Media Manager windows is played back in the Trimmer. Because the Trimmer is placed in the same window dock as the Explorer and Media Manager, you will not see your video preview. To preview Explorer and Media Manager video, you can drag the Trimmer to a new dock group, or you can turn off the Show Video Monitor button to preview in the Video Preview window."

Thanks Ed, saved my butt...I thought I had messed something up fiddling with the trimmer "which I've never used in 5 years of Vegas Use, for whatever reason."

Scary 10 minutes of panic typing there....
