Hi everyone!

 

So I've been running a blog for my pets, and to take pictures/videos for it, I use my Nikon D3300.

 

The D3300 saves video as .MOV, and Vegas Pro doesn't support that file type. Vegas is my only editing software, so I don't really have any other choices.  Does anybody know any programs that convert video files? I can't find anything that doesn't look suspicious. Preferably free, but I can spend a little bit of money on it I guess.

a very simple free program is freemake

it will put a "water mark" at the beginning of the video if using the free version, however you can easily edit that out with your vegas software after

 

or you can use lightworks free edition.....its a bit more complicated, but it will not have any "water marks"

hi to all,

 

good dslr and good video editor

 

you have to upgrade to sony vegas 10 in order to be able to import your .mov videos into vegas for editing and rendering

 

you can convert your .mov video files even with the cheaper magix video editor (ex sony vegas studio)

alternative you can find and buy through ebay or amazon a used sony vagas pro 10 or pro 11 

 

certainly you can convert your .mov video files with any video converter but i am afraid to say that sony's vega engine and the newer magix video studio is far superior 

 

if your planning to upload your videos to your blog or youtube as well then even a freeware converter can do the job perfectly

Actually, I have Vegas Pro 14, which I did buy used. I don't know if something has changed between versions? .MOV files don't work with my Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 11 (that I bought new) either...

 

Thank you for the links. I don't know why its so hard to find a legitimate program for such a simple task lmao

Thanks for the links, but the first program was blocked by my antivirus software. Might want to be careful.
