Last week I recorded the Rhine Falls with my new DJI Mini 3 Pro. I want to edit these 4K MP4 materials in Vegas Pro 19 using my brother’s Windows PC, mainly adding background music and some subtitles. But I can’t preview the material in the editing software. So what is the solution? – Young, Timothy
