Summary:If you want to edit Nikon D5200 MOV clips natively in Avid, Premiere, Sony Vegas, Windows Movie Maker, you can follow the article and you will get best solution.

The D5200 is physically almost identical to its predecessor, and almost all of the changes are internal, including key systems borrowed from the enthusiast-oriented D7000. The D5200 offers a higher extended ISO range compared to it's little brother - 25600 vs 12800 - and faster continuous shooting (5 fps vs 4). For video shooters the D5200 can record Full HD 1920 x 1080 movies at up to 60i or 50i (when set to NTSC and PAL respectively), although this uses a central crop of the sensor area (~1.25x). More conventional 30p, 25p and 24p modes use the full width of the sensor.

Cut/Export Nikon D5200 MOV for Avid, Premiere, Sony Vegas, Windows Movie Maker

The Nikon D5200 takes footage in H.264 MOV format, which is not an editing codec in Sony Vegas and other common editing applications like Avid Media Composer, and Pinnacle Studio. The reason these cameras use H.264 is that they're still cameras with a video function, so their focus isn't on giving you the best possible editing codec. Furthermore, camera manufactories are in the business of selling camcorders, and not so much selling editing systems, the camcorder makers at this level don't really care all that much about the editing problems this creates. To use H.264 MOV shootings in your editing software, you will have to transcode the footage. Depending on your editorial systems, WMV (VC-1) is the preferred format for Premiere, Sony Vegas and Windows Movie Maker, DNxHD is the preferred codec for Avid.
