I am really surprised to realize that Vegas is not natively able to open .mov files created with contemporary cameras (Panasonic Lumix GF2). I was told that is was a powerful software, hence I took a license. Good grief!
It's not quite that simple. MOV is an Apple format. Vegas is a Windows competitor. I don't believe Vegas had a full set of it's own in-house codecs at that time. Does your recently purchased software, which was discontinued four years ago, have a Deprecated Features tab in its Preferences? If so, you might try there. Where did you purchase your software?
@LoicLeTersec, I downloaded your file and it can not play in Vegas Movie Studio and not in Vegas Pro, the latest. Because I don't want to install the old and not wanted Quicktime software, I think. The only possibility is the use of the free app "Handbrake" to convert that file. The coverted one plays good, even in my VMS 14. Look
Eventually, I installed Handbrake to convert the MOV to M4V files and my current problem is solved. That being said, this additionnal conversion operation is a waste of time. Just to be sure, do you mean that should I have Quicktime installed, Movie Studio would natively recognize the mov format?
MOV is just a file container. It's the codecs used inside that matter. Movie Studio will open many using its own codec(s). But MOV files where the Format ID is identified as JPEG or PNG encoded video, require Quicktime. Your files are JPEG so yes if you have QT installed your Movie Studio 15 should open them and avoid you having to do a Handbrake conversion.
