Hi, I’m no expert, so sorry in advance if this is trivial. This is my very first video import into Cubase.
I took a short video capture with Fraps (well known Windows video capture software: http://www.fraps.com) - the resulting file that it saved out is an .avi, about 8 seconds long, roughly 25MB, half my screen resolution so maybe 640x480.
In Cubase 6.5 I try File->Import->Video File…, Cubase recognizes the file and imports it to a track (no errors), but the result is basically no video (see screenshot).
I’m assuming that maybe Fraps is encoding it in something Cubase doesn’t have a codec for? If so, does anyone know what I need? Or is there something basic about video importing that I’m missing?
I’m also more than willing to use some other video capture software… as long as it’s free I only need short video segments of gameplay to help me align my sfx to the animations.
