Never mind .. after I enabled the QuickTime plugin Vegas did not crash, however it did not read all QuickTime videos on my timeline but problem was solved after I installed Apple QuickTime player.

 

I am just wondering why I still need Apple QuickTime player if Vegas Pro 19 already support it?

All media are QuickTime

 

Why Vegas can read some QuickTime files without QuickTime player installed and can't read other QuickTime fills unless QuickTime player is installed?

What does QuickTime media mean? MOV container?

Here's how to answer what is in the mov: https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/faq-how-to-post-mediainfo-and-vegas-pro-file-properties--104561/

Vegas uses its own decoders for AVC, HEVC, ProRes and other formats that can come in a mov container. It needs Quicktime to decode motionjpeg, DNxHR and other codecs. So it depends what media we are talking about.

Yes all QuickTime files have the extension of MOV

 

So clearly we still need QuickTime player to be installed in order for Vegas to be able to read all codecs in QuickTime files.

I uninstalled QuickTime player years ago. I mainly work in AVC or ProRes and don't want to deal with QT's serious limitations in Vegas. I'd rather transcode before importing.
