20% off- Get Canon 5D mov footage editing with Sony Vegas smoothly

Summary: This article will show the best way to get Sony Vegas to work with Canon 5D HD MOV footage by converting Canon h.264 MOV to MPEG-2/WMV for Sony Vegas editing.


The Canon EOS 5D is a digital sngle lens reflex (DSLR) camera that can capture high definition stills and movie clips. It saves movie clips in-camera using a Compact Flash (CF) memory card. Canon bundles a simple free software package with the camera. Canon's supplied software applications are named ZoomBrowser for Windows and ImageBrowser for Mac which can play movie clips, and also perform rudimentary movie editing, but it not for windows, and some people have been asking importing issues about Canon 5D into Sony Vegas on Windows.

I'm new to DSLR editing and have a bunch of 5D footage for a music video I just shot, and now need to edit it. I use Sony Vegas and have a relatively not that high performance laptop (about 4 years old) that has seen me through other editing projects, but I always feel theres a bit of a loss in quality in the finished product. I thought I'd ask, or if anyone can point me in the direction of places to find information, on 5D workflow for editing in Sony Vegas. If theres no hope for Vegas and my slow computer I will look into other options such as getting new editing software or borrowing someones mac or something.

I've been annoyed that sony vegas and most other apps on my PC can't play the 5D full HD .mov files smooth. I was so excited about not having to transcode any files from shooting to editing. I have settled to transcode. But failed many times. Hope this helps anyone out there. I guess PC doesn't like handling the h.264 codec very well.

How to edit 5D H.264 MOV files in Sony Vegas smoothly? The best way is to convert 5D H.264 MOV to Sony Vegas supported format, like MEPG-2/WMV format, which is best for Sony Vegas, and then you can edit the converted videos in Sony Vegas without problems.
