Video Import to Vegas Pro 9

I'm trying to import a MP4 or MOV file that was done on Final Cut Pro into Vegas Pro 9, it imports but only the audio plays.  On the screen the video is black. Both files play fine when just clicked; they ope in Quick Time and play with video as designed. I'm able to import other MP4 files that I've rendered in Vegas just fine.

Sony Vegas only supports certain formats, MP4 or MOV  some are supported but it depends on what codec is used.
You'll need to identify which codec the video uses please download Gspot and run an analyses on these video.

 Otherwise please convert them to a suitable format for Vegas
This is a very helpful blog for everyone with this problem using Vegas version 9, their solution was to uninstall Quicktime, you can try this if wish to.

the answer was correct but did not want to uninstall Quick Time as is use it for other things and overall seemed to be a hassle. i really am disappointed with Sony Vegas 9. Have done a work around by having the MOV file rendered as a AVI which was readable by Vegas.

Thanks,
