So I'm a noob to video editing and such so I'll try to explain what's wrong.
So when I import this MP4 file into Sony vegas it looks like this (http://i.imgur.com/vfWmczZ.jpg)
It also looks grey when I import it into AE. I installed Xvid, Quicktime, K lite MP4 codecs, ffdshow, and something with x264 both 32 and 64bit.
Here's a program I found with stats on the video (http://i.imgur.com/MWpOTdB.jpg)
So what I used to record the video was a mod for a video game. I saw something with x264 I don't know if that's useful info though.
Mentioned in thread for recorder mod:
''It is highly recommended to also install a video encoder to heavily speed up recording and save disk space:
Windows: Download the latest x264.exe (32bit/64bit 8bit-depth) from x264.nl and move it inside "bin" in your Minecraft directory.''
I had a movie on my PC, which was a mp4 file, and it imported fine into vegas.
So this is all I know and I hope someone can help me fix this problem because I've been trying to fix it way too long.

Thread: File not opening in Sony Vegas.
vegas or AE. You need to change the settings from qp 0 or crf 0 to something non zero when recording. Or you can re-encode it with non lossless settings and it should import into vegas
I don't play minecraft.
If there is something labelled CRF or QP in the recording options, set it something to something other than zero. If you post a screenshot of the recording options screen someone might be able to give you more instructions
Only sign of the mod in game is the actual recording and a start and stop button. No settings or anything.
AND I had to download a file called x264.exe and drag that in too.
Is the x264.exe file somehow editable?
If that's all you know though, thanks for the help!
I'm sorry if I sound like a noob.
x264.exe is the executable for the encoder
Upload the rar file, if it contains a configuration file, or something to input into x264 then you might be able to modify it
I'll post the link to the thread.
It's under download and then Minema v2.0-beta3
I'm not a programmer
But looking at x264.class in the folder : info\ata4\minecraft\minema\client\video\encoder with a hex editor, there is a qp setting and it's set to "0"
I don't know if you can edit .class files with a hex editor. But I tried anyways and I put it as "1" and saved it in the same directory structure, and zipped it up
So backup your own files, and use at your own risk - I have no idea if it will work, but that "qp 0" definitely relates to whether or not lossless mode is being used or not
If they figure it out and get it working (how to edit .class files properly), post back because I'm curious
EDIT: apparently its JAVA
There is a post there saying to use notepad++, so I tried same thing using notepad++ instead of hex editor. No idea if it will work, it sounds like you have to decompile it, edit, then recompile it
