Cannot Import iPhone 7 4K video to Sony Vegas Pro? – Solved!
When you took some fantastic 4K videos with your iPhone 7/iPhone 7 Plus, sure you want to share with your friends and families or uploading to the online websites. Before sharing, you may want to edit iPhone 7 4K videos. However, you may find it a painful experience to put 7 iPhone 4K videos on Sony Vegas Pro (Vegas 13 included). What’s matter? How to fix the issue? Read on to find it out.
iPhone 7/7 Plus records 4K .MOV videos in H.264 codec. While, Sony Vegas Pro is pretty picky with the codecs of what it’ll accept; it doesn’t like H.264. To solve the issue, a common practical way is to convert iPhone 7 video to Sony Vegas most compatible video like MPEG-2.
Of course, working with 4K files can be taxing on your computer, especially if you don’t have the most powerful machine to edit on. From our tests it looks like Sony Vegas Pro 12/13 has to create a lower resolution proxy file to display in the NLE while you edit, so you have to wait for the proxy file to be created before you can edit any iPhone 7 4K footage. In this process, it will cost some time.
Well, if you don’t like the way, or have the old version of Sony Vegas Pro that doesn’t support 4K video, an alternative way is to convert iPhone 7 4K video with Pavtube Video Converter and then import to Sony Vegas Pro directly.
