So I’ve seen this happen before here and I have fixed it before but don’t know where to start. I’m using a Sony video camera which creates Sony made mts or m2ts files (it labels them as mts). When I drag and drop them into Vegas, all I can see are the audio tracks but not the video. And it’s not as if Vegas is the only app that has this problem. When Vegas has a problem so do other video converters, such as Xilisoft, etc. Oddly enough, Handbrake has no problem converting the mts file into something else.
I saw advice here or on the Sony site to remove the codec pack that you may have installed from k-lite or other places. At the time that’s exactly what was the fix. But I’m once again plagued by this problem and not sure how to get myself back to the point where only the codec for mts files that Vegas uses is in effect or installed with any other impediment uninstalled or inactive. Hoping others here can lead this horse to the water. Thanks in advance.
Thanks Dave – no, I haven’t done anything that I could surmise which would cause that to happen. I just recall Windows updates and unrelated software. If reinstalling is the only solution, I’ll get to it. But like all software which requires activation, I get nervous reinstalling software, not being sure when and if my installs will be used up. In the past Sony has been very good (which Adobe has been the most brutal to deal with for me, by far.) I’ll let you know how it goes.
