  1. 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)

  3. 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:

    Code:
    Video
    ID                             : 0
    Format                         : AVC
    Format/Info                    : Advanced Video Codec
    Format profile                 : Baseline@L3.1
    Format settings, CABAC         : No
    Codec ID                       : H264

    Height                         : 720 pixels
    Display aspect ratio           : 16:9
    Frame rate                     : 30.000 fps
    Original frame rate            : 25.000 fps
    Color space                    : YUV
    Chroma subsampling             : 4:2:0
    Bit depth                      : 8 bits
    Scan type                      : Progressive
    Bits/(Pixel*Frame)             : 0.125
    Writing library                : x264 core 130 r2274bm c832fe9
    After I converted using VirtualDub:
    Code:
    Video
    ID                             : 0
    Format                         : x264
    Codec ID                       : x264
    Bit rate                       : 23.5 Mbps
    Width                          : 1 280 pixels
    Height                         : 720 pixels
    Display aspect ratio           : 16:9
    Frame rate                     : 30.000 fps
    Bits/(Pixel*Frame)             : 0.849

    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.

    To correct video frame rate, use --fps XX (XX = 25,30,60...)
