Importing to Vegas Pro 365 from Adobe Premiere Pro was created by Vidchick

Have any of you had issues importing a video you started editing in Adobe Premiere Pro (I think mine was started in CS6 I was using the Creative Cloud) into Vegas Pro 16? I was thinking about subscribing to the Vegas Pro 365 for 3 months to import a video from Adobe and save/render in Vegas Pro so I can then import it into Movie Studio 16 Suite to finish it.

I would be doing this in a pretty souped up machine so I don't anticipate processor or video card issues.

Just wondering if there are any helpful hints. I did not see any other questions like this out there.

Windows 10 Pro, 64bit
32GB Ram
12 core, Intel I7-8700k, 3.7GHz
1TB hard drive, plus a 512GB SSD for editing
GeForce GTX 1080Ti graphics card, Intel UHD graphics 630
NVidia High Def Audio, Realtek audio

Thanks!

Why not import your video from Adobe directly into Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 16 ?
Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.
Unplugging is the best way to find solutions to your problems.

Derek,

I would love to import directly into Movie Studio 16 Suite. (I have MS16 Suite not Platinum if there is a difference in function. I thought Suite was Platinum with added stuff) Guess I missed that as an option. I thought you had to buy Vegas Pro to get that capability.

Do you just select the project file as you would any other media and import it to the media bin? I’m guessing it reads and converts everything seamlessly? Are there any special tricks? I haven’t seen a tutorial on that on Magix or MSZ so I’d be guessing.

Thanks!

Platinum is part of the Suite version. The same identical version of Platinum comes with the Platinum and Suite versions.
"The Suite" is Platinum plus bonus Video FX from NewBlueFX.

I thought you had to buy Vegas Pro to get that capability

Which capability are you talking about ?
Are you referring to the ability to open Adobe Premiere Pro .prproj project files with Vegas Pro ?

When I read your original message, I thought you were talking about normal everyday video files, like yourvideo.mp4 ?
I didn't realize you were talking about project files, which is completely different.

If you mean Premiere Pro project files, then yes only Vegas Pro can open them.
If you are talking about regular .mp4 videos, Vegas Movie Studio can open them.
The only thing to be careful of, is even though Vegas Pro is meant to have the ability to open PP project files, in reality this function does not always work as expected. It all depends on what is in the PP project.

It might be simpler to just render out your existing PP project as a Cineform video file and import it into Vegas Movie Studio.
The Cineform format is basically uncompressed, so you want loose any quality.
It will import into VMS just as a video. This might be simpler than subscribing to Vegas Pro 365 and then finding it doesn't do what you want.
Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.

Yes, the file says .prproj so it is a PP file. Thanks, I’ll look into rendering as Cineform as an option. I think I saw where you had a tutorial on that. Is that better than or about the same as getting Adobe CC back for 1 month, rendering the project file, and just importing that video file into Movie Studio 16 to finish it out. At this point, I’m ok with paying a little money if it makes the process quicker. I have a backlog of things to get done quickly.

Thanks so much! You are amazing!

Hi Vidchick,

Just wanted to comment a bit about your initial workflow as you describe.....

This part "I was thinking about subscribing to the Vegas Pro 365 for 3 months to import a video from Adobe and save/render in Vegas Pro so I can then import it into Movie Studio 16 Suite"

Just wanted to confirm the understanding of terms. If you are using 'save' in the same context as 'render', yes this would work, you could render the project to something like Cineform intermediate out of Vegas Pro, then simply add that source media into Movie Studio. However you cannot open a Vegas Pro project in Movie Studio (it will work the other way around Vegas Pro will open a Movie Studio project).

Also, because of the expected complexity that Derek mentions previously, I would download the free Vegas Pro 16 trial and try your work flow in it. If it works in the Vegas Pro 16 trial it will work in the Vegas Pro 365. The only limitation in the trial, that I am aware of, is the limit in how much it render. I think it is set to render about 2 minutes, no longer, of which will have no effect on you testing your workflow. These are just some thoughts I had.
Best Regards......George

After looking into this further..... Adobe suggested that I just get a trial version of Adobe Premiere Pro, save and render out my project, then start with that video file to edit in whatever program I wanted. Sounded reasonable but.... their interface has changed so much from when I was using it a couple of years ago it was simpler to just start my edits over in MSP13 or go to MSP16 than to bone up on the different functionality. I had a thought that maybe my owned copy of Adobe Premiere Elements might open, save and render the project but it saves/reads different file extension so that didn't work.

Nutshell...... if I'd had the time the free trial Adobe would have been the answer and would be my suggestion to anyone else trying to salvage prior work from Adobe Premiere Pro to move into Movie Studio for edits.

Instead of getting Movie Studio Pro I ended up with an upgrade from my Movie Studio Platinum 13 Suite to 16 Suite. MSPSuite16 has all the upgrades like multi camera editing and video stabilization I needed at a great price without all the pro level cost and extra fluff.

Thanks again!

I am not looking at the files right now but I seem to remember different file extensions. Longer reply about my eventual fix in another comment in this thread.
Thanks,

Hi Vidchick,

I'm not sure I follow you about the file name extensions, but I will comment about what I think I know.....

Project files: Movie Studio 13 file extension for project files is '.vf' the same as Movie Studio 16 Platinum. Vegas Pro file extension for project files is '.veg' and that is for all Vegas Pro version that I am familiar with back to version 12 and probably in all previous versions.

Project Compatibility: Movie Studio 16 will open projects from previous versions of Movie Studio. Vegas Pro 16 will open projects from previous version of Vegas Pro and Movie Studio. The only incompatibility would be if you used an FX or plugin in Movie Studio 13, that was not included in Movie Studio 16, then that part of the project would not be present in Movie Studio 16, but the rest of the project would be.

Addition Information You Probably Don't Need: Adobe '.prproj' projects will not open in Movie Studio or Vegas Pro. There is a import feature in Vegas Pro for ingesting .prproj files but it has always been problematic and I have never heard of anyone who is happy with it. If you are going to use Vegas Pro, it would be better to export from Adobe in .xml and import that into Vegas Pro. I do not have Adobe or Final Cut, but I have successfully imported .xml from DaVinci Resolve and the round robbin between Resolve and Vegas Pro works well, but of course there are limitation.

So, if what you are now doing is using Movie Studio 16 Platinum/Suite to open your old Movie Studio 13 project, that should work well. If you are going to use Movie Studio 16 Platinum/Suite to start a new project and use the old source media you used in either Adobe or Movie Studio 13 Platinum, that should work well.

Hope some of this is useful.
Best Regards......George
