Question Movie Studio 17 does not recognise .mov files

Have discovered MSP 17 does not recognise .mov files.  MSP 15 does.  Is there a setting I should alter on MSP 17?

VMSP17 will recognise some mov files but those that need QT won't work as the QT plug-in got broken in one of the builds.  So activating QT in the Deprecated Features tab doesn't help.  As VMS has been discontinued sadly it means it won't be fixed.

But to be sure post MediaInfo on one of your files.  My experience is that those that use "jpeg" codec for the video are the ones that need QT and won't open.  With others VMS17 uses "so4compoundplug".  But my experience with mov files is very limited.

Thanks.  I'll try your suggestion.

Good job I didn't delete MSP15.

I sometimes download parts of videos  from the internet which are usually .mov files,  to edit into one of my projects.

That sounds a bit strange?
I have never seen video on the Internet in .mov format.
Most video hosted on the web is .mp4, like YouTube.
If you are using a program to download video from the Internet, don't use .mov, but use .mp4 instead.

For any video files that won't open in Vegas, the first thing I always recommend is to convert them into .mp4 with Handbrake.
If you have never heard of Handbrake, read/watch this:

Hi Derek,  Yes you are quite right.  I shot off the reply without thinking.  My .mov files are created when I use my Retroscan digital scanner to copy 8mm home movies. Sorry.  I think you have mentioned Handbrake before to me.  I have found that in the depths of my computer that I have some NCH software (comes from your neck of the woods) which includes Prism video file converter.  I have tried it and it will convert .mov to MP4.
I apologise for the misinformation.

Regards

Brian
