Although Sony Vegas announced that it can deal with a wide variety of video files including MOV, people still encounter many problems when importing MOV to Sony Vegas Pro for further video editing. You may say: since MOV is said to be supported, why Sony Vegas doesn't accept my MOV files? Well, that's because MOV is a container instead of a codec. If the MOV contains a video codec that Sony Vegas can't recognize, for instance, DivX, Sony Vegas Pro (including Vegas 13) won't accept it.
Luckily, you can get the MOV recognized by Sony Vegas Pro easily. What you need is only a common video converter that can convert MOV to Sony Vegas compatible WMV or MPG files. Here EaseFab Video Converter is highly recommended to help you convert MOV videos to Sony Vegas even if you're a newbie. It supports creating high quality WMV or MPEG-2 codec to seamlessly fit Sony Vegas Pro, no matter what's the format of your source video files. With the user-friendly software you can achieve your aim in only three steps. After the conversion, all you need to do is to drag the result videos for prompt editing.
How to convert MOV files to Sony Vegas
Step 1. Add MOV videos
Click "Add Video" button on the main interface to load your MOV files once you set up the professional MOV Converter on your PC. (Drag&Drop function is another way to import the videos.)
Step 2. Set output format
Select "Editing Software" - "Vegas/Premiere (MPEG-2)" from the format drop-down menu. The output video seamlessly fits Sony Vegas Pro 13/12/11/10, etc. and the original quality of YouTube video will be kept.

When all settings are ready, click the Convert button to start converting your videos. The progress bar will show how much time is needed. When the conversion completes, get the videos and run Sony Vegas to import them for editing.
