Hello there amarylis_la_.
Here's your GEEK-steer ...
== INTERPRETATION ==
What I'm hearing is:
- It's not well enough that you are able to view the output of your Nikon (or at least not with Quick Time and VLC player only), but you wish to edit it as well?
- Your Sony Vegas Movie Studio 8d cannot open/import your Nikon's produced files?
- Your Nikon produced output files are extension .MOV?
== ANALYSIS ==
If all the above is accurate, then I'm a bit perplexed. Here's why:
- Per the publisher's own webpage, version 9 accommodates import of "AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MOV, WMV".
- Mmmm, so then maybe Sony Vegas Movie Studio only added .MOV format import capability sometime after your version 8d?
- However, although I couldn't easily find a specific import spec list for version 8d, this publisher description states version 8d can "edit video in nearly any format". Given the fact that version 9 does accept .MOV, and .MOV certainly being common standard enough to reasonable be expected to apply as "nearly ANY format", it seems strange that you're unable to open/import it.
== QUESTIONS ==
- Are you receiving an error message of any kind upon attempting to import/open the file?
- Is .MOV listed in "Sony Vegas Movie Studio"'s open/import "Files of type:" drop-down list?
- When analyzed with G-Spot, what video codec info (upper right) is reported on your Nikon output files?
== CONCLUSION ==
- If indeed your Sony Vegas Movie Studio cannot import your Nikon produced video, AND you require being able to edit it, your only option is to get another video editor/converter that will.
- If you post back describing what your specific objectives are (set-top DVD Player/portable-device playback, clean-up editing, more comprehensive creative editing, etc.), I'd be happy to recommend capable freeware/trialware software choices that will "FixYa" up (pardon the pun).
Thanks in advance for posting back ...
- to let me (and others) know how things worked out,
- if you have any further questions,
- to provide clarification or feedback.
