A thing i found verry usefull once :
In short muxing is a process where separate parts of the video or "streams" are joined together into one file.

Muxing VS Converting
With muxing you can remove subtitles
It only works with .mkv and .mka files
You won't lose any quality
It takes only 2-5 minutes
Smaller output file size

Downloading
1.1 It is very easy and you will save a lot of time, you just have to download latest mkvtoolnix and Install it.
http://www.videohelp.com/tools/MKVtoolnix

1.2 Next download and extract to mkvtoolnix's directory MKVExtractGUI
http://www.videohelp.com/tools/MKVExtractGUI-2

1.3 And finally download and install My MP4Box-GUI

http://www.videohelp.com/tools/My-MP4Box-GUI
Muxing
2.1 Now open MKVExtractGUI2, click input file, select your footage and click open. Now just select for example, if you want only video and you don't need the audio or subtitles, select only the Video Track which is usually Track1 and click extract. Now you will have a file with extension .h264
2.2 Open My MP4Box GUI, click add, select yourfilename.h264 and click mux. Now you have yourself an .mp4 file which you can import to vegas and start editing.

Extra


3.2 Make sure before downloading your footage to check if it's a 10bit or 8bit file, because for some reason sony vegas doesn't like 10bit files and you will have green screen after muxing, if you don't know how to check if it's a 10bit file download MediaInfo
( http://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo/Download ), right click on the file and look for "Bit Depth" it will tell you if the file is 10bit or 8bit. But if you can't find 8 bit footage or have other problems you can convert 10BIT to 8BIT but it will take more time. Download the following BATCH ( mediafire.com ?96lylrzxxbyuuk5 ), extract it to a new folder, move a 10bit file you want to encode into the same folder, click and drag the 10bit file onto encode.bat, a cmd window will appear, wait until the encoding window disappears. Open mkvmerge GUI. Drag the original video into the input files. There should be a list of checkboxes underneath. You want to uncheck the V_MPEG4 (this is the 10bit video you want to throw out), now drag in the ENCODED VIDEO. It should be the same name as the ORIGINAL VIDEO except it has a .8bit.mkv at the end. Name your muxed file at the bottom and hit mux (don’t forget a .mkv) And that's it, now you can start muxing, but if you feel like you lost some quality after 10bit to 8bit converting, you can try editing the encode.bat file with notepad and change the number "crf 18" to let's say "crf 16", the smaller the number the higher the quality, but I recommend to stick with 18 because you won't notice the difference if you change it to 16 and I don't recommend going any lower because it's pointless and will take more time to encode, for anime 16-18 is perfect. Don't mess with other setting unless you know what you are doing. But for the sake of this tutorial I will tell you more. You can change the preset to ultrafast, veryfast, fast, slow, slower, very slow, placebo, etc. and tune you can change it to film, animation, fastdecode, grain, etc. But like I said, you shouldn't mess with them unless you know what you are doing.
Hope it might be as usefull to some as it was to me.. kuddos to zero4real also

This doesn't work for some reason in my vegas.
It makes the vegas crash or just show a amount of GREEN SCREENS on the timeline. :|
I use Vegas 10.0 64 Bits btw.


There is always sleep between part and meet. With our usual words on the usual street. So let us part like we always do. And in a world without you, I'll dream of you. When I come to, let us meet. With our usual words on the usual street.

did u look to see if the mkv was a 10bit one or an 8 bit one...?the green screen kind off makes me think of that...also..the ONLY things i did not manage to convert through this were horrible subs encodes...for some unknown reason yet...i still say check the last part and see if its 10bit...if it is....u must first convert to 8 bit then do all the thing to the 8 bit file

Ever tried using Xvid4PSP for muxing? It's a lot easier cause you don't have to extract the video track and all that.

And that 10bit to 8bit tutorial is from Commie, no? blink

Weird... the procedure is very identical... http://commiesubs.com/how-to-convert-10bit-to-8bit/

I'll give a bit of input if you don't mind. When converting to 8bit, you can just change the file extension from mkv to mp4 in the notepad. That way, you can import the output file directly into vegas.

Nowadays, most fansub groups encode in 10bit so you can't really avoid converting at some points. With the exception of HorribleSubs of course cause their encodes are always in 8bit.

>cries each time she hears about 10 bit
>every single time

Seriously though, the popularity of 10bit amongst subbers nowadays makes me want to crawl in a hole and die.
Y U NO CARE ABOUT EDITORZ AND THEIR COMPATIBILITY ISSUES

According to my experience, MPEG-2 is the best codec for Vegas. Besides remuxing and installing codecs, I've success using easefab video converter to change my videos (mostly in MKV and MOV) format to MPEG-2, which seamlessly fit my Vegas 12 without least quality loss. Anyone else can take a try. http://download.cnet.com/EaseFab-Video-Converter/3000-2194_4-76199236.html

Here is the list of Sony Vegas supported input formats:

MOV, WMV, H.264, AA3, AAF, AIF, ASF, AU, AVC, AVI, BMP, BWF, CDA, DIG, DLX, DPX, DV, EXR, FLAC, GIF, HDP, IVC, JPEG, AVCHD, M2T, M2TS, MVC, Sony MXF (XDCAM and HDCAM SR), MP3, MP4, M4A, MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 video, OGG, MPO, OMA, Panasonic MXF (DVCPRO, AVC-Intra) PCA, PSD, QT, R3D, PNG, SFA, SND, TIFF, TGA, XAVC S, W64, WAV, VOX, WDP, WMA, XAVC Intra MXF

Sony Vegas doesn't support MKV as an input format so it is impossible to import MKV files into Sony Vegas directly.

To open MKV in Sony Vegas, the common method is converting MKV to Sony Vegas supported formats.

Here is a guide to complete the above task at: http://www.faasoft.com/articles/open-mkv-in-sony-vegas.html

Hope it can solve your issue.
