I am recording a gameplay with DXTory and I feel no lag at all when recording from the game. The videos are saved as .avi and play fine in VLC. But when I’m trying to get DXTory AVI to Sony Vegas Pro for further editing, it seems to crash Vegas almost every time! I tried to include as much info as I can and finally got some clues.

So DXTory has 2 file types, .avi or just raw. I basically prefer the AVI format. Searching the DXTory AVI to Sony Vegas issues, some guys give their suggestions. One is to install codec packs as Sony Vegas Pro lacks the support for DXTory .avi files. But I don't believe uninstalling it will help as Sony's codecs have already been over written. So I didn’t adopt the way.

Another common solution is to convert DXTory .avi to something more Vegas friendly like MPEG-2, which ensures the best results when using in Vegas Pro. I tired the method with the help of a third-party video converter. It works perfectly. I now can work my DXTory AVI videos in Sony Vegas Pro flawlessly. Here are the details.

First download Brorsoft Video Converter, an easy-to-use yet powerful high-quality video converter, player and editor.
