    I use Vegas Pro 15 to edit videos for youtube. Last year I spent about a week sitting down and using the inbuilt Vegas trimmer to essentially mark out sections of every episode of a show and saved it into my file (MP4 format). Everything worked well and each project I opened before would also show me all the regions I had already marked before.

    I have since switched laptops, and I transferred my files over to my new ssd drive and got Vegas back onto this new laptop. However, when I open my files on Vegas, it says that the files have no metadata. However, when I open those exact same files on my older laptop, the regions are still enabled then.

    I tried disabling the options in preferences where it automatically saves marker/region information to the file but my older laptop doesn’t create the .sfl file and continues saving it in the media file itself. Is there any way I can import my region data from the trimmer over to my new laptop or am I out of luck?

    Thanks in advance!

    Did you copy the .sfl file over with the original file? The marker information is typically stored in a separate file.

    <div>I copied everything together but nothing ever worked.</div><div>

    I used an external drive to transfer everything over from my old laptop to the new one. In that drive contains all the media files, .sfk and the .sfl file I was able to create on my new laptop. The .sfl file was generated from a file from that drive itself, so there’s no question about accidentally separating the .sfl file from its media counterpart.
