Looking around i think AVI has different codecs. the video im trying to import is using the XviD 1.1.0 Final codec according to GSpot.
I just got it to work exporting it into uncompressed TGA pics using Vdub so i think it's the codec
Xvid is not designed to edit. Its a delivery CODEC.
What should i use for editing then? and do i just use VDUB do convert it?
Edit DV AVI type 2 with 16bit 48khz sound
I have NOT used these products, I only forward due to other mentions

Welcome to the forum.
This ARTICLE will give you some background on file formats, which are but wrappers, and can contain all sorts of things, as you have found out, with the Xvid CODEC.
This ARTICLE will give you some background on CODEC's in AV files.
This entry from the PrPro-Wiki will give you some tips on handling certain CODEC's. BTW - the PrPro-Wiki is worth bookmarking, as the FAQ section has so much useful info, and the tutorial section will be useful too.

>John T. beat me to the punch
I shall now go punchless for awhile... Wife's son & grandson are due "any minute now" for breakfast, then it's outside to work on the never ending yard project
MY task for the day is to complete building a "rack" where we are going to hang 5 gallon cat scoop buckets for upside down gardening with tomato plants
Since my CS5 order is due soon, and it is supposed to be dry, I may even wash my hands and get my Vixia out for some filming to play around with next weekend
I hope that those are "un-used" cat
poop(oops, I see that you typed "cat scoop" - my bad) buckets. Um-m-m, think of those flavorful tomatoes...
Enjoy and have a great weekend,
[Edit] correction to just what John T. is using for those tomato plants.
Short break... and I had to sneek away from SheWhoMustBeObeyed
5 gallon plastic buckets from Costco (a "big box" store if you don't have one in your area) that should work just right for upside down gardening
Drill about a 2" hole in the bottom/center... thread a started tomato plant through the hole... use newspaper to make a ring around the base of the plant so it doesn't fall through before the roots grow... hang the bucket and fill with planting soil
Water once in awhile (lot's of 1/8 inch holes in the bottom so the "water baby" otherwise known as my wife doesn't drown the roots) and we'll see if the idea works
If it does, we'll find more places to put more plant racks... if it works, should make harvesting very easy
