    x264vfw Problems

    I recently installed DXtory and Vegas Pro, I had a look around on Google to find a good encoder to use, I eventually found x264, and chose to use it because of the the small file size(10 mins under 1gb) and high quality. I have recorded a few videos and I just tried to edit them in Vegas Pro, but after importing them, the preview showed very broken looking video (Low FPS, wrong colors, other strange stuff). I watched the in Media player and the looked perfect. I tried rendering them to see if they would render correctly, but I couldn't find x264 in the list. I have installed x264vfw 32 and 64 bit (32 dxtory and 64 Vegas). Is x264 incompatible with Vegas? If it is, are there any other good encoders that I could use?

    Most likely Vegas came with a H264/x264 codec preinstalled, so the problem might be lying there. Uninstall the other x264 codec and reboot the system. Try in Vegas whether it is solved now.

    I need to have it installed to record with dxtory, but I can uninstall the 64x version.
    [Edit] Just uninstalled the x264vfw64 codec and the video still runs but will not open in Vegas at all.

    Because Vegas is a bit picky when it comes to codecs, I suppose.
    What other codecs do show up in DXtory?

    There is the DXTory codec, Cinepak codec, Fraps codec, Intel IYUV (In the list twice), Microsoft RLE, Microsoft Video 1 and x264vfw - H.264/MPEG-4 AVC Codec (The one I am using)
    [Edit] I am using the x264 settings from the post http://www.thecgl.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=178

    I would try a short video recorded with the DXtory Codec, and see whether you can open it in Vegas. If that works, you can encode your videos in x264 with it after editing them. If storage space is eaten too much, the original records could be thrown away.

    Vegas opens DXTory codec, but I don't have the option to render it as x264...

    Because you removed one of the x264 codecs I assume. I advise to reinstall Vegas and not to mess with codecs if you have several video recording/editing programs installed.
