The Vegas Pro is more powerful then before, but its compatibility still needs to be improved. Especially we can't load the latest H.265/HEVC coding formats into Vegas Pro. Don't worry about this. We'll share the some solutions with you. Magix claim the Vegas Pro supports HEVC/H.265 import and export now. But it can't handle 4K H.265/HEVC well. While many camera users still have troubles when importing H.265/HEVC recordings with .mp4, .mkv, .mov or .mxf file extension to the latest Vegas Pro 19 for editing.
