I had been doing an edit in CL Pro, and saved as an AVI
I watched it via windows media player after i saved it and it was fine

I go to add it into my movie in Pinnacle and when i do, the file itself on the timeline is blue? Like nothing i just did, just blue footage for 5 seconds

Any ideas?

Does Pinnacle support the codec you used to render the video?

Edit: Please do not post multiple topics about the same thing.

AVI isn't a codec in and of itself. You have options in avi such as Mpg, mp4,cineform (if you spent enough money), xvid, and uncompressed.

I have also ran tino issues within interlacing when you start on the wrong field (even or odd).

Pinnacle OFFICIALLY supports only a few codecs from import (but for multiple edits, I'd use uncompressed if you have the space)
