webcam .wmv (asf) files won't load in Vegas

A basic new Logitech webcam's .wmv (asf) files won't load in Vegas 10
pro. They just make a zero length bar on the timeline, which I can
right-click properties for, but nothing to look at in the video
department. Virtualdub says it doesn't support asf files when I try
that. I'm just trying to shrink the size for web upload.

Vegas has never supported .asf files so you're SOL

AVC (Any Video Converter) works hard trying but the resulting file
cannot be read. Uninstall.

Is it just impossible?

Can I run a different generic driver on the webcam which produces usable
files? I only paid $30 for the webcam. Win7 64 bit.

I can capture video through Vegas using the logitech driver and that
works. I really wanted that older clip but at least I can capture usable
video now.

Have you tried Windows Movie Maker ? It's available in WinXP.
If you're lucky, maybe there's some output format from WMM
that you can use to get back to Vegas.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Systems_Format

There is some kind of equivalent of WMM for Vista/Win7 here.

http://explore.live.com/windows-live...er-get-started

Microsoft also has a package that is supposed to add formats on
output, but there's nothing useful in there (i.e. to aid escaping
the Microsoft zoo).

That a look at the site www.videohelp.com you might find useful information
and a suitable converter program to convert the files.

Good thought but no dice.

Alright, there was a lot of relevant discussion and offhand mention of
SUPER, which I forgot I had and that worked!
