Import/Convert mov files to Sony Vegas with mov to sony vegas converter

MOV is a native QuickTime file format which functions as a multimedia container file that contains one or more tracks, each of which stores a particular type of data: video, audio, effects or texts (e.g for subtitles).

Sony Vegas is a professional non-linear editing system originally published by Sonic Foundry that can be workable with Microsoft Windows XP, Vista and 7. It supports unlimited video and audio tracks, any aspect ratio, pixel aspect ratio and any frame rate etc.

Although promised to deal with a wide variety of video files, people may still face many problems when importing MOV files to Sony Vegas for editing, as to my research, there are several issues summarized below that people may commonly run across.

“My files on my Aiptek camcorder come out as HD MOV files, these aren’t compatible to Sony Vegas, what should I do these files that make them good on Sony Vegas and not download the quality.”
“Help I can’t import MOV files to my Sony Vegas 7. It says I have to download QuickTime. I already downloaded it and it still doesn’t work.”
“When I import my camera video clips (mov) to Vegas I only get video no audio, when I watch them normally in Windows Media Player I got sound. Why is this? In the file explorer built into Vegas it says ‘audio: can’t determine'”
“I’ve recently just bought a new camcorder (Toshiba Camileo H20), which export video in MOV format. On importing them into Sony Vegas 9 I have had a few problems.
1) The video starts a few seconds after the actual start.
2) The sound starts at the beginning of the clip.”


1: PC unsupported
Maybe Sony Vegas is not supported by your PC, Sony Vegas currently can only run on Windows XP, Vista and 7 and Mac versions available, so check your PC.

2: Application or codec missing
MOV is a native QuickTime file format, and QuickTime is bundled with every Mac bought which can be available for both Windows and Mac, but in order to use the MOV files, your PC must have QuickTime installed, but this can’t solve problems completely, you still have to install the proper codec.

3: File compatibility, corresponding settings or unique camcorder
Sony Vegas may not accept your MOV files from your camcorders, and there will be audio, video problems, or some other problems etc. This may result from file compatibility, improper camcorder or Sony Vegas settings or types of camcorder (for example, MOV files do not always work in Sony Vegas, the new JVC GY-HM700 records in MOV (for FCP) format and they don’t show any video but do show audio)
