Canon cameras- 5D mark III, 7D, 10D, 60D, T2i, T5i, etc are familiar with everyone whoever has passion for Canon EOS Digital DSLR. The point here, you will find it a painful experience to import and edit Canon H.264 MOV with Sony Vegas Pro software. There’re some frequently asked questions quoted as below.

Q 1: Importing .MOV files into Sony Vegas from Canon 600D

I'm planning to purchase a Canon 600D for YouTube videos, however I found out the only file format it records in is .MOV much like the iPhone recordings, previously I've had to convert these to .wmv to get them to work in Sony Vegas Pro, but it loses the video quality. Is there anything I can do to be able to import the the files into Vegas without any problems without an error message? Or is there a way of converting the file but keeping the majority of the quality?

Q 2: How to convert each separate MOV clip from 5D Mark II to Vegas Pro

Something is odd about these .MOV files from canon (my camera is 5D Mark II). The problem is documented on internet but I have not found any solution except to convert each separate clip and then I can use them with Vegas Pro editing software. How can I “batch” convert them?

As you know Canon EOS DSLR records MOV videos, but it seems Sony Vegas Pro (including the recent Vegas Pro 12) does not like the way. The file type is a compressed output format, but not ideal for editing in NLE system. To solve those problems, the quick workaround is to transcode MOV files to Vegas Pro natively supported formats (MPG/WMV are highly recommended). Along with some help from third-party software, it can be done effortlessly. Here I share a simple guide on how to convert Canon H.264 MOV files for Sony Vegas Pro editing smoothly. If you’re facing the issues, read on to find the answer.
