ProRes to Vegas Pro Errors:

I have got some 4K ProRes 422 HQ files from the Nikon Z9, but when I import it to Vegas Pro 19 for edition, the ProRes audio always shows up later and can not sync with the ProRes video. Why this problem happens and how I can successfully import the Nikon Z9 4K ProRes to Vegas Pro 19 for edition?

Every time when I try to import Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera Apple ProRes file to Vegas Pro for edition, the ProRes file audio not playing at the beginning. I am using the Vegas Pro 18, by the way. How can I fix this problem? It really troubles me very much.

I bought Acrok MXF Converter with a discount code last month. I upgraded the software to the ultimate version yesterday, and I ripped my Blu-ray discs to my Fire HD tablet supported format with it. Everything is ok.
