Workaround for Sony Veags & Action!

Tue Mar 15, 2016 5:34 am

I've figured out the best workaround for videos not working with Sony Vegas. It is very simple: you put all the videos in a folder, double click a .bat, and they become instantly remuxed into another folder and work with Sony Vegas with zero quality loss.

You want to get FFMPEG.exe and put it into a folder, in the same folder make a new folder called "remux", and then make a new .bat file and edit the .bat file and paste this in there:

for %%a in ("*.mp4") do ffmpeg -i "%%a" -c copy -map 0 "remux\%%~na.mp4"
pause

This will remux everything in the main directory into vegas-compatible .mp4 in the remux directory.

You can also download the premade .bat+ffmpeg.exe+remux folder to save time here:

Here is a video demonstrating the fix:

My god, thanks for this! I simply set Action! to save videos to that folder, and then run the .bat file afterwards. Makes life so much easier. Would be nice though if Mirillis would accept the reality that this is a problem on their end and fix it, instead of pushing the blame towards Sony Vegas.

But so far this is easily the best alternative/workaround there is currently. I may actually be able to use this program yet again. Still though *cough cough* ...

Return to “Action!”
