Vegas Pro & M2TS files: How to Import M2TS to Vegas Pro 10/11/12

Summary: Having issues when importing and editing M2TS files in Sony Vegas? Get the quick solution below by converting M2TS video into Sony Vegas most compatible format.

You may collect a pile of M2TS videos from a capture device, for example the Roxio Game Capture HD Pro, or a Panasonic, Canon, Sony full HD AVCHD camcorder. When you import & edit the M2TS files in Sony Vegas Pro, ever met any trouble? Most guys have a painful experience. There are some frequently asked questions quoted as below.

Q1: Can’t load M2TS to Sony Vegas
Well i got a huge predicament, with my older capture card that i used to have was the "Roxio HD pro" that i recorded my first 30 or so video's, it recorded the file type into a M2TS format. Which does not load up into vegas. Any quick solution?

Q2: Sony Vegas freezes when importing M2TS
I have been using this file type since Vegas 9. They come from 3 different Panasonic cams and are 1080 / 50p. Sometimes Vegas freezes when importing the 1st file, other times it lets me do that but freezes when I try to add a 2nd file. Happens with files from all 3 cams.

As you know M2TS files are widely used in a capture device or a full HD cam, but it seems Sony Vegas (including the recent Vegas Pro 12) does not like the way. The file type is a compressed output format, but not ideal for editing in NLE system. To solve those problems, the quick workaround is to transcode M2TS files to Sony Vegas natively supported formats (MPG/MOV are highly recommended). Along with some help from third-party software, it can be done effortlessly. Here I share a simple guide on how to convert M2TS files for Sony Vegas editing smoothly. If you’re facing the issues, read on to find the answer.

Downloading the App- Brorsoft MTS/M2TS Converter

As far as I know the program is one of the best M2TS converter on the market. With it, you can effortlessly transcode M2TS files to MPEG-2 or MOV, which will create an Sony Vegas friendly file format keeping the original quality. Besides Premiere, this software can also export DNxHD for Avid, MPEG-2 for Adobe Premiere Pro/Premiere Element, AVI for Pinnacle Studio and more NLE systems for native editing.

Convert M2TS files to Sony Vegas Pro

Step 1: Add M2TS video files

Install and launch the M2TS to Sony Vegas converter then load source .m2ts clips to it.

Step 2: Choose output format

Click “Format” pull down list to select Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas> MPEG-2(*.mpg) as the best video format for Sony Vegas. MOV, WMV are also the proper choice.

Tip - Profile Settings:
In case the default settings do not fit your requirement, you can click “Settings” button and enter “Profile Settings” panel to adjust video size, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channels.

Step 3: Start M2TS video conversion

Click “Convert” button to start encoding M2TS video to MPG/MOV for importing to Sony Vegas Pro 9/10/11/12. When the conversion task is finished, click “Open” button to get the exported files and then import the converted M2TS footage into Sony Vegas Pro to do further editing.
