December 17 2014 , Written by sophializhu Published on #open mp4 in sony vegas, #sony vegas mp4 render, #Editing H.264 AVI video in Sony Vegas, #h.264 avi to sony vegas pro, #avi to vegas pro 11, #Convert H.264 AVI clips to MPEG-2, #Import H.264 AVI into Sony Vegas Pro, #mov to sony vegas pro, #sony vegas mov converter

Here you will find the best solution to make MOV/AVI/MP4 files compatible with Vegas Pro 10/11/12/13 perfectly.

Sometimes you probably would meet the issue like below:

"My issue is that video simply wont load into SV12. I have videos in mp4, mov and avi formats and none of them work (I need to be able to load all of these). I've read that this is down to the codecs *shrug*.

MP4, MOV and AVI are containers for video, audio and other data; it is the data that determines if Vegas can import the files. Try importing other supported file formats like MPEG2 and DV AVI to see if they work.

Step 1. Download, install and run the MOV/AVI/MP4 to Sony Vegas Pro Converter to load your source MOV, AVI, MP4 video or videos.

Tip: This Flash converter supports batch conversion, so you are allowed to add multiple files to convert at a time. Meanwhile, if you wanna combine multiple video clips into a single file, you can check the “Merge into one file” box.

Step 2. Click on the dropdown menu of “Format”, and then follow Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas” and select “MPEG-2(*.mpg)” as the output format

Convert MKV to Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC) *.mov For iMovie Importing/Editing Smoothly

December 14 2014 , Written by sophializhu Published on #mkv to imovie 10.0.6, #import mkv files to imovie, #edit mkv in imovie in mac os yosemite, #convert mkv to aic mov, #rewrap mkv to Apple InterMediate Codec aic mov, #mac Apple InterMediate Codec converter

You may want to import 1080P/720P HD MKV to iMovie to edit the MKV movies in OS X Yosemite 10.10. However, iMovie does not support MKV importing. Fortunately, there is an easy way to fix this issue. Let's find it out here. Learn to use MKV on iMovie.

We usually saw iMovie users encounter importing issues when attempting to edit 1080p/720p HD MKV files with iMovie 8/9/10. Let's see some frequently asked questions on this.

Q1: Can iMovie edit MKV movie files in OS X Yosemite 10.10?

“I have a 1080p MKV file I want to get into mac for edting in OS X Yosemite 10.10 . I know MKV won't work in iMove and that it needs to be converted to something friendlier like Apple InterMediate Codec(AIC). Right now I'm converting the MKV using Perian in Quicktime but it's taking an extremely long time: it's been 15 hours and it's only halfway through. I was wondering if there was something like that available for MKV files so I don't have to re-encode. Any suggestions?”

Q2: how I can use mkv video in iMovie 10 ?

I've some videos in .mkv extension and i'd like to edit some scene in iMovie studio.
Is it possible? How to?

As we all know, MKV (Matroska Video), as an open and free container format is not so compatible with NLEs including iMovie, though it is able to keep diverse video, audio, and subtitle components in just one file and has ability to let users enjoy high definition videos at home easily. Since MKV is not supported by iMovie natively, we need to convert MKV to iMovie friendly codec, like AIC (Apple InterMediate Codec) with a powerful third party program.

According to other users' experience and my own testing, Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is highly recommended here which can achieve your goal for transcoding MKV to AIC MOV for iMovie editing without quality loss. Besides iMovie, this ideal tool offers some professional codecs for other NLEs on Mac, like Apple ProRes for FCP, DNxHD for Avid, MPEG-2 for Premiere and so on. With it, you will never be worried about the incompatibility problems between common videos and NLEs. Now, download the software on Mac, and follow the guide below to start conversion.

How to Import MKV files into iMovie without any issue

Step 1. Drag MKV files to the program directly. Or go to the "File" menu, choose "Add Video" to locate the MKV files you want to add. You can add several files to do batch conversion.

Step 2. You can choose iMovie/FCE --> Apple InterMediate Codec(AIC) (*.mov) as the output format. The output format is designed for iMovie 11/iMovie 09/iMovie 08 specially.

Tip: You are provided to adjust parameters including audio& video bitrate, frame rate, channel, codec .ect in "Settings" profile before conversion.

Step 3. Tap "Convert" button to start MKV to AIC MOV conversion on Mac.

After the conversion, you can get the encoded videos via "Open" panel and then launch iMovie,choose File > Import > Movies…, to import the converted MKV video into iMovie.

Adobe Premiere ProCS5 doesn't import native Sony PMW-EX3 XDCAM MP4 files properly

December 11 2014 , Written by sophializhu Published on #CS5 doesn't like XDCAM EX mp4 format, #Sony PMW-EX3 XDCAM EX footage to cs4, #Sony EX3 MP4 to cs5, #import raw EX3 MP4 to PPro, #XDCAM EX3 files to Adobe, #convert EX3 MP4 files to MPEG-2, #CS5 doesn't import native XDCAM files, #sony pmw-EX3 to adobe premiere pro

Read this article to solve your Sony XDCAM EX3 MP4 files to Adobe Premiere Pro CS6/CS5/CS4 importing issue.

Question here:

"I posted a little while ago that Premiere Pro CS4 doesn't read/import native Sony XDCAM EX PMW-EX3 files properly - no audio is imported.

I was hoping CS5 would change this but after some testing, it's (almost) as bad - audio is imported this time but only 2 of the 4 channels. Audio playback is very weird - a very high pitch playback just like the footage has been significantly sped up. Maybe there's a problem setting the sample rate etc on conforming.

If I convert the files to MXF, they seem to play and edit OK - so far.

Anyone else got a PMW-EX3?"

Best Answer:

The main reason is that the XDCAM EX MP4 is not the best editing format for Premiere Pro. Well, here we’d like to offer two solutions for you to resolve the issues.

Solution 1: Transfer the PMW-EX3 XDCAM EX MP4 back into MXF

You could transfer the XDCAM EX MP4 footage back into usable MXF files using the Sony XDCAM Browser. It seems to work OK as far as we’ve got with the projects. Trouble is, storage for bigger projects (like the 300GB footage project we’ve just shot) can be a problem. And we have to note that Adobe PP can’t handle the MXF files well all the time, especially the older versions.

Solution 2: Convert Sony PMW-EX3 MP4 into a Premiere Pro highly friendly format

To solve the tough question, we’ve found out a workaround, although it may take a little while to convert. You will need a decent Sony XDCAM EX MP4 to Premiere Pro Converter to re-format files to MPEG-2, the most compatible format for Adobe Premiere Pro. It is ideal for you to experience a high quality and high efficiency post-production workflow of XDCAM EX MP4 clips into Premiere Pro.

Step 1: Download, install and launch the best Video Converter to load your raw MP4 videos to it.

Step 2: Move your mouse pointer to Format icon and tap it; select Adobe Premiere Pro/Sony Vegas >> MPEG-2(*.mpg) as the target format.

Step 3: For editing MPEG-2 in Adobe Premiere smoothly, we recommend you set 1920*1080 as video size and 30fps (or 29.97fps for original 59.94fps files) as Frame Rate on the Profile Settings panel.

Step 4: Start converting Sony EX3 raw MP4 to MPEG-2 for Premiere Pro CS4/CS5.

When the conversion process shows in 100%, you can tap the Open button on the main interface to locate the output MPEG-2 video. Now, just transfer and edit Sony PMW-EX3 XDCAM EX footage in Adobe PPro CS4/CS5 as you want.

December 9 2014 , Written by sophializhu Published on #wmv to itunes, #import wmv to itunes, #convert wmv to itunes, #add wmv files to itunes, #play wmv in itunes, #wmv to itunes converter, #encode wmv to mov, #Rapid Method for Importing WMV to iTunes, #iTunes How to import the WMV video files

Q: "iTunes how to add the WMV file format?"

File type: WMV file

Size: 30 MB (31559349 bytes)

It used the space: 30 MB (31559680 bytes)

I put this WMV file into the iTunes database and open, but iTunes does not have any reaction (i.e., did not show any thing, also did not say this file cannot be used and so on), repeatedly tried several times still can not, who can tell me how to use this file and then convert into iTunes?

Through the search it is not difficult to find that iTunes does not support the WMV format, then, what formats are supported by iTunes? Here I make a list of:

a. H.264 video, up to 30 frames per second, High 1080p, Profile level 4.1 and AAC-LC audio, as high as 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio, the file format of .M4v,.Mp4 and.Mov;

b. MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 x 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile and AAC-LC audio, each channel reaches as high as 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio, the file format of .M4v,.Mp4 and.Mov;

c. Motion JPEG (M-JPEG), up to 35 Mbps, 1280 x 720 pixels at 30 frames per second, ulaw audio and PCM stereo audio file format for .Avi

So we need do some preparation to fix the incompatibility issues. Here I would like to recommend a smart WMV to iTunes Converter for Mac (Yosemite and Mavericks included) that not only converts WMV file to iTunes readable video formats(.mp4, .mov, .m4v), but also changes WMV to iMovie, Final Cut Pro, QuickTime and Mac-friendly format so you can play, edit and share WMV files on Mac without any hassle. For those who are working WMV videos with iTunes on Windows PC, please turn to Brorsoft WMV Converter.

Now the following article just aims to introduce a step by step guide on how to convert WMV files to iTunes(12) supported format.

2) Click the "Format" drop-down button to set desired iTunes compatible video or audio format. You can set MOV, MP4, M4V from Common Video profile as the output format for iTunes.

Tips: To transfer WMV from iTunes to iPad, select an optimal format from the "iPad" category; To sync WMV to iPhone via iTunes, you’d better directly select a format from the "iPhone" category; To transfer WMV from iTunes to Apple TV, select a profile from the "Apple TV" category.

3) Click the "Convert" button to finish the WMV to iMovie converting.

After conversion, click "Open" to get the converted WMV files. Then start your iTunes, and choose “File – > Add File to Library or freely drag the converted WMV files to iTunes.

Editor’s Note: For iTunes 12 users, it would be a bit different as the old version. When you add movies to iTunes 12, you can check the Home Videos Tab under Movies. Your movies should be there.
