As far as I know, many folks find it is not convenient for them to import MXF footages from Canon EOS C500 PL to Sony Vegas Pro 12 for editing. In fact, Sony Vegas announces that it can work with MXF on its official site, but some users still have troubles when transferring MXF files to Sony Vegas. Then what should we do to successfully load Canon EOS C500 PL MXF recordings to Sony Vegas Pro 12?

It's quite easy, the best way to let Vegas Pro work with MXF files is to convert these files to Vegas compatible formats like WMV and MOV previously. Actually, you just need a Canon MXF Converter which makes it possible to smoothly import EOS C500 PL MXF recordings to Sony Vegas Pro 12 for editing.

If you are interested in doing this, I recommend Pavtube Video Converter, which offers various output formats, and you can select the most suitable one for your Vegas Pro 12.
