Cannot open AVI files on Vegas Pro 12

(Im new to Sony Vegas just saying) When i drag my avi file (which came from the ingame recorder) it comes up with a message of *none of the files dropped on vegas pro could be opened*. the only way i can open the file is by converting it into a WMV or a MP4. Also when i do convert it into a WMV file the quality looks bad compared to the original AVI file. Either way.. its a lose lose if i do anything to it. Im completed confused Plz help .. and no trolls plz!

1. Is it just me or do i always have to convert the video in order to open it on Vegas?
2. I've also tried to record via Bandicam but when i upload the vid it seems to look bad and not in full screen. Does this depend on my screen resolution and my monitor?
3. When converting the file, why does the file look worse than the original file?

Download a video converter that puts the vid in mp4 format.

Handbrake or AppGeeker do the trick well. >> .avi to .mp4

solution for successfully importing avi to sony vegas pro

The quick and easy solution to solve avi and vegas pro 12 importing issues.
AVI is listed as one of the supported formats by Sony Vegas Pro, why Vegas canít import and open AVI files correctly? Well, the problem is mainly due to that Windows didn't come with the codecs that were used for those particular .AVI files(AVI is just a wrapper for a large variety of codecs.)... Thatís why Sony Vegas Pro won't open it. So, you can try to download the codec packs to solve the issue.

And here we recommend you a better solution- transcoding AVI to Sony Vegas Pro more friendly video format like MPG. Brorsoft video converter is the right tool for you besides handbrake.
