Workaround for Nikon D5600 to Sony Vegas Pro Incompatible Issues
I have several video files from Nikon D5600 that I have placed on an external hard drive. The files are .mov. I found the files are playable through QuickTime, but won't go into Sony Vegas Pro on my PC. How do I import these Nikon D5600 MOV files into Sony Vegas Pro? I have researched the web and tried to follow these instructions and finally figured out a quick fix to solve the Nikon D5600 and Sony Vegas Pro incompatible issue. Learn how to.

According to the Sony's official website, Sony Vegas Pro does support MOV format. Whereas, the H.264 encoded MOV footage from Nikon D5600 is beyond the comparability of Sony Vegas. In other words, you are unable to locate your Nikon MOV files into Sony Vegas Pro directly. You need to find another way to perform the task. As we all know, the most compatible video codec for Sony Vegas is MPEG-2, then transocoding Nikon D5600 MOV to MPEG-2 with a third party program is an easy way to fix the issue.

To have an easy and fast conversion process, you're highly recommended to get Brorsoft Video Converter, a powerful video converter, editor and player. It offers an optimized preset for Sony Vegas for easy access. Besides transcoding Nikon MOV to Vegas Pro supported videos with optimized settings while keeping the video quality, the easy-to-use toolkit can convert other camera footages like GoPro MP4, Canon MOV, Sony XDCAM EX, Sony XAVC (S) to Sony Vegas Pro as well as Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, Premiere Elements, Windows Movie Maker natively supported video formats on with fast encoding speed.

How to Transcode Nikon D5600 MOV for Editing in Sony Vegas smoothly

Step 1: Run the top Nikon MOV Converter, and then click the "Add" button to load the .mov videos.

Step 2: Click "Format" bar and choose "Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas > MPEG-2 (*.mpg)" as output format on the drop-down menu.

Tip: Click the Settings icon to adjust video and audio parameters on the Profile Setting as you need to get the best quality video.

Step 3: Simply click the "Convert" button to start converting and everything else will be automated. If you have added quite a bunch of video files, it would take some time to convert. In such case, you can click Option and tick the box "Shut down the computer after conversion".

You're done. Now your Nikon D5600 MOV files will be converted into MPG files ready to be imported to Sony Vegas Pro 14/13/12/11 beautifully.
