Why Sony Vegas Pro 12 Won't Import Any Videos Such as MTS/MP4?

As someone reflect that they are often refused when importing some recordings to Sony Vegas Pro for editing. In most cases, MTS and MP4 are typical common ones that not suitable for Sony Vegas Pro according to some errors or screen conflicts appeared there just like the example below:

‘I used Sony Vegas before yesterday, everything was fine. Today, I import a MP4, M2TS, and TS and they didn't want to open. I have QuickTime; Latest version. When I tried to import m2ts, it says that could not be found. I tried converting the files to avi and still the same. Help me!’

Sony claims that Vegas Pro 10/11/12/13 supports most commonly-used video codecs, including the MP4 (MPEG-4). However, problems like "Sony Vegas won't Open MP4 files" come up from time to time. In fact, the native import of some flavors of MP4 wasn't supported in Sony Vegas Pro 12. In addition, based on our testing, some MP4 files will import into Sony Vegas Pro without QuickTime perfectly. Of course some HD video formats are not available for Vegas pro, such like MOVXAVC or even the latest codec H.265 videos, etc.

Solutions: Install the Pavtube Video Converter for Windows (For Mac version?), which is designed for converting almost all videos to various NLEs or media players, including transcoding MTS or MP4 to MPG as the best one for Sony Vegas Pro 12. It is much easier and more effective than any other third-party converting plug-ins.
