can't open .AVI in Vegas ? HELP!

Hello,

I have this .AVI file that won't open in Vegas 10. It gives me an error of unsupported format.
But if I load the same .AVI in Sound Forge, it opens just fine and I can even watch the movie in the preview window.
I don't get it, why vegas can't open a file that sound forge opens?

I need to edit this film for a montage. Can anyone help?

Kind regards,
joni

It looks like you have the appropriate 32-bit video codec used Soundforge but not 64-bit codec to work with 64-bit Vegas.

Never use a codec pack with video editing software, unless you know exactly all the codecs you need. Check your AVI with MediaInfo and select the required codec.

Thank you.
And is there a good source to get the codex in case I identify a needed one? Or should I get it from the developer's website directly?

Ideally you get it from the developer's site.
If you're not sure, post the results of what you get from MediaInfo and I'm positive that we can help with a specific site recommendation.

Please do not install a "Codec Pack".
