Thread: Can't do anything with MOV files in Vegas

    Default Can't do anything with MOV files in Vegas

    Hi all, this is my first post so be gentle.

    I have Kodak Zi8 HD camera that saves files in .MOV format. Unfortunatley not much I can do with those in Vegas Pro. I can import the file but no audio. Even if there was an audio Vegas just chokes on .MOV It's unworkable.

    What do you all do with MOV files in Vegas pro? How can I edit MOV in Vegas Pro or at least convert them with no quality loss.

    I have tried few converters but they all have their own problems. Some of them mangle the audio while others

    Kodak camera came with it's own editing software but it's a joke.

    If Vegas cannot do it, is there any other video editing software that will work with MOV files?

    Thanks in advance

    Default

    Same problem here. Pinnacle reads them properly, but I hate Pinnacle...one video track, lame.

    I have used Quicktime Pro to convert the file, but the quality suffers.

    It seems overwhelmingly disastrous for Kodak to make the files MOV natively, and Vegas Pro, at its price, should do what it's supposed to do.

    Default Quicktime Version

    So, the problem stems from the most recent update from Apple. If you revert to Quicktime version 7.6.2, you can import the MOV files into the media bin and drag them to the timeline and you'll see the audio track.

    Prior to importing the file, make sure you rename the *.MOV file to *.MP4. If you can't see the extensions in Windows, make sure you view your folder properties and unhide extensions in windows explorer.

    There are additional problems with Vegas that I need to ask about in another post...
