    Afterburner recording irregularities breaks Sony Vegas import - now with more images

    Hi all,

    So up until today I've been importing MJPG encoded .AVI files from Afterburner into Sony Vegas just fine. All is well. I did some recording today and suddenly was met with an error in Sony Vegas that read the following whenever I tried to import:
    This is extremely strange because I do not remember changing any settings in Afterburner. The supposedly broken .AVI file also plays fine in VLC and VirtualDub. The headers are there so it isn't a case of "closing the game before stopping the recording".

    I personally cannot tell the difference between a 'working' .AVI file and a non-working one. Below are some mediainfos grabs:

    As you can see aside from the obvious differences relating to video length, etc., they seem to be identical.

    Here are screenshots from Sony Vegas. Take note of the file info at the bottom of the dialog box:

    So what seems to be the issue here? If I can recall the only difference that may have had an effect would be the fact that I updated from 2.3.0 to 2.3.1. Could that have been it?
