Edit Nikon DL24-500 4K MP4, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video in Sony Vegas Pro 8/9/10/11/12

After digging online, I found a workaround to use the Nikon DL24-500 4K MP4, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 file in Sony Vegas Pro. If you are also in such trouble, pls read on.

Nikon DL24-500 weighs 780 g (1.72 lb / 27.51 oz) and has external dimensions of 123 x 90 x 139 mm (4.84 x 3.54 x 5.47″). Considering that the average weight of Large Sensor Compact type cameras is 404g, Nikon DL24-500 is a significantly heavy camera for its class. With a thickness of 139mm, it is not small either, 78mm thicker than the average of its class.

Main Features

*21MP - 1" BSI-CMOS Sensor
*ISO 100 - 12800
*24–500 mm F2.8 - F5.6 Zoom Lens
*Optical Image Stabilization
*3″ Fully Articulated Screen
*2359k dot Electronic viewfinder
*60.0 fps continuous shooting
*4K - 3840 x 2160 video resolution
*Built-in Wireless
*780g. 123 x 90 x 139 mm
*Movies: MP4, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264

However, to our regrettable, editing Nikon DL24-500 MP4 files in Sony Vegas Pro directly is difficult to achieve currently, because Sony Vegas Pro can’t recognize the MPEG-4 AVC/h.264 or MP4 recordings from Nikon DL24-500. So to ensure a smooth workflow, you need to transcode Nikon DL24-500 4K/1080P MPEG-4 footage to Vegas Pro natively support codec.



Now I share the guide with you how to convert Nikon 4K MP4 to Sony Vegas Pro friendly format using Brorsoft Video Converter. With it, you can effortlessly transcode Nikon DL24-500 MP4/H.264 files for smoothly importing and editing in various non-linear editing systems (NLE), including Sony Vegas, Pinnacle Studio, Adobe Premiere Pro, Cyberlink PowerDirector, Avid Studio, Magix Movie Edit Pro, Windows Movie Maker and more. Now, download the software and follow the guide below to start conversion.

But, as all we know, DNxHD.mov is usually regarded as the most compatible format for all versions of Avid Media Composer, that's to say, in order to edit H.264 files in Avid Media Composer smoothly, converting H.264 to DNxHD.mov is your optimal choice!

Pinnacle Studio is a non-linear video editing software application manufactured by Pinnacle Systems, a division of Avid Technology. It is the consumer-level counterpart to Pinnacle's former professional-level software. Although, it claims that Pinnacle Studio is compatible with the MPEG-4 files, H.264 MP4, a compressed output format is still not an ideal editing format.
