I use x264vfw codec for Dxtory recording with command line "--keyint 1" to be able open this recording in Sony Vegas Pro without artifacts for editing.
Everything works perfect until I try to cut recorder video into parts in Sony Vegas. I split video to three parts, delete middle fragment I don't need. And after that the same issue always occurs: at the beginning of third part Sony Vegas shows last frame of first part video for just one second.
It could not be a problem, because usually I put fragments next to each other, but sometimes I put blank screen between, and this issue is very visible - it looks like frame that should not be here, appears at the start of splitted clip.
Is there a way to fix this issue without converting whole video to other format before editing in Vegas (so far I found this is only way to fix)?

I wonder if you commandline is being passed ? In theory, you shouldn't see those issues with intra encoding (--keyint 1) even with AVI container . What does mediainfo (view=>text) say about dxtory recording ?
1) You can try to cut the segment in vdub before importing into vegas (using direct stream copy mode)
2) You can try re-wrapping into a different container , more suitable for h.264 (e.g. .mp4 , or a transport stream .m2ts, or .ts)
Thank you for answer, it made me think that it can be issue with Dxtory. I decided to use VirtualDub to convert video from Dxtory using the same settings I use in Dxtory from x264 video into x264 video again. I used this file in Vegas now, and this issue doesn't appear at all.
MediaInfo (from MPHC) shows info about file recorded by Dxtory:

While I wrote this post I realized about something. And I think finally I found issue, and probably now I fixed it (tested just few minutes before). I changed in x264vfw option called "VFW FourCC" from H264 into x264 and it works now without this repeat frame issue in Vegas. I recorded test video with this setting changed and now it shows the same info I converted using VirtualDub.
