Have shot some 4K H.265 MOV video with your Fujifilm X-T3 camera and wish to load the 4K footage into Vegas Pro for some professional post editing workflow. The following article will show you how to get a smooth workflow of Fujifilm X-T3 MOV with Vegas Pro.
Can Vegas Pro handle all Fujifilm X-T3 4K MOV video?
“I’m importing a mov file using Vegas Pro 14 on a my laptop running Windows 8.1. However, it doesn’t appear to import, though a blank thumbnail appears in organizer. When I attempt to open the file, I get a missing codec error message. Help?”
From Vegas Pro supported file formats, we can see this professional editing software lacks the ability to direct handle 4K H.265 video shot with Fujifilm X-T3 camera. What’s more, as Vegas Pro’s system requirements for 4K editing at quite high. You should have a dual 10 core Xeon system as an “entry level” 4K editing suite and ideally a faster computer for more 4K editing. It would be much ideal for you to compress 4K to 1080p for smooth editing on low computer.
