studio 9 won't play video captured in studio 8

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Ronald O. Christian, Apr 2, 2005.

  1. This is strange. I recently upgraded to Studio 9. When I open an avi
    clip previously captured in Studio 8, it shows up in the top edit
    window but refuses to play it. When I drag a clip to the storyboard,
    sometimes it lets me (but still won't play it) and sometimes it gives
    me the error "nonstandard frame rate". Are all of my previously
    captured clips useless now? Do I need to dump this and go back to
    studio 8?

    I have clips captured via a digital 8 camcorder, and older clips
    captured via DC10+. Studio 9 won't play either of them. Windows
    Media Player plays them fine.

  2. Upgrading to Studio 9.4.2 did not fix the problem. Windows Media
    Player will play the clips, but Studio 9 will not. I've tried with
    hardware acceleration enabled and disabled. Anything else I should
    try?

    Windows XP Pro on Athlon 2000+, 512 megs memory. At one time I had a
    working Studio 8 installation.

    Ron,

    Sorry you're frustrated, and I don't have an answer for you, but I noticed
    some strange things happen regarding codecs. For example, I have Commotion
    Pro 3.1.1 and saved to a Microsoft AVI (uncompressed). Studio 9 couldn't
    open it. Media Player could open it but couldn't really play it. I went back
    to Commotion and rerendered to MS AVI using an MJPEG codec and that fixed
    the problem for me in both Studio 9 and Media Player. Virtual Dub had no
    issues with the clip either way.

    My system is an Athlon XP2500+ running Windows 2000 Pro with 1.5GB DDR.

    Maybe somewhere in there is a clue to your situation - I hope so. BTW, have
    you tried Pinnacle's forums
    (http://webboard.pinnaclesys.com/read_forums.asp?WebboardID=13&SectionID=228
