Just got Panasonic’s new P2HD camcorder AG-HPX600 for days. I like the HD cam very much with its 4:2:2 AVC-Intra recording. It is belong to new series of memory cards called microP2 card ( Awesome! ), which have an SD card form factor to further cost-efficiencies in media pricing. But I was disappointed I couldn’t directly get PX600 AVC-Intra MXF to my Sony Vegas for further editing. So, I wanted to know is there a way to make HPX600 footages compatible for Vegas Pro?

If you are facing the situation likewise, follow the steps below I share with you.
