Nero Video 2014 - Vision in Preview but black in edit mode.

Hi Everyone,

First post. I have been pulling my hair out with this problem - and after extensive Googling I still havent come up with the answer.


New (3 week old) laptop with Windows 8.1 installed. 64 bit. Installed Nero 2014 platinum.

This is my fourth Windows laptop on which I have installed Nero... and I've never had this issue before.

My problem is that while I am able to load avi and mpeg videos into Nero Video 2014 - DVD - and play them on the preview player once I hit "EDIT" I lose vision completely - either a freeze frame of the first frame or just black for the whole clip. Audio is unaffected.

I have checked for and installed all Nero updates.

I have checked the box "enable Nero background rendering.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Nero completely.

I ran compatability mode on Windows 8.

And as suggested here:

I ran dxdiag.exe - but nothing showed up as amiss.

Nothing has fixed this. And I'm not sure what to try next....

And unfortunately this is the one part of Nero I use constantly!!

Any ideas?
