About Vegas Pro 19

Vegas Pro is one of the best premium video editor tools. Vegas comes with lots of preloaded features. The Vegas editor has long been my choice for editing videos on my Windows PC. Recently, editing software brand VEGAS announced it’s reworking its entire Vegas Pro product line to better align with the audience the company wants to reach.VEGAS has broken the Vegas Pro 19 into three packages: Vegas Edit, Vegas Pro and Vegas Post. All three, while all seemingly capable of quality video edits, are intended for different users.

Vegas Pro no longer allows me to import MP4 files?

I have a lot of 4K clips which is converted to .mp4 files, for editing in Vegas Pro. My backup files are also .mp4, and I have deleted the native 4K RAW files. Recently I bought Vegas Pro for editing in Vegas Pro, and I am not going to use Final Cut Pro (actually, I don't have it anymore). But it looks like Vegas Pro don't handle my .mp4 files very well. It looks like bad streaming, like its something wrong with the frame rate. When I import native 4K files everything works perfectly fine. But the problem is all my old files, which is converted to .mp4. I have to find a way I can use them in Vegas Pro.

The Vegas Pro can't recognize UHD 4K MP4 footage

I recorded some UHD 4K footage with the Canon EOS R5 C. But I can't load the AVC-LongG/MP4 files into Vegas Pro on Windows 10. Who can tell me how to load the MP4 into Vegas Pro for smoothly editing?

About my video: UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) at 23.98p, 4:2:2 10-Bit, .mp4.

Sometimes when you drag the MP4 video into Vegas Pro, it works but with no audio. Many folks are facing the MP4 importing issues with Vegas Pro even with the latest Vegas Pro 19. As far as I know, MP4 is a container format which can contain data encoded using various compression and encoding schemes. If your MP4 files are not accepted by Vegas Pro 19, 18, 17, 16, etc, it's probably because of the video or audio codec incompatibility. On this occasion, you need to transcode MP4 to the Vegas Pro editing-friendly formats and then transfer the converted MP4 files to your Vegas Pro for editing. Well, according to Magix, Vegas Pro only accepts H.264 MOV, MP4, AVC, AVCHD files. So, if you plan to edit your H.265/HEVC, XAVC S, XAVC HS, MPEG-4 MP4 in Vegas Pro smoothly, you'd better transcode your MP4 to Vegas Pro native supported video format and codec.

To solve the incompatible trouble you’d better wrap MP4 a native format for importing to Vegas Pro. To get the best quality with 5.1 sound, you can transcode your recorded or downloaded MP4 to H.264 encoded MOV files, which maintains maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with Vegas Pro.
