In this video tutorial I show some different ways to Import Video into your computer, ready for use in Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.

I show how to Import from an SDHC Memory Card directly into a folder on your Hard Drive.
I also show how to use the inbuilt Device Explorer for Importing Video into Vegas.

    Hi oxavet
    It sounds like you need to install Apple Quicktime.
    Quicktime is needed to decode some Apple video formats.
    There are download links in this tutorial here:
    The important bit is in the section titled "[b]Important update about Apple Quicktime[/b]"

    Hi Derek,

    I started my 4 hours project again from scratch as I was unable to understand where the clips from the two cameras fit in the vacation. So from the Sony action cam, I created three folders : Day, night discovery. I edit the 190 clips from the Sony and sort them in the different folders. I am now trying to import the folders I create in Vegas movie 12 platinum. All I can do is import each file, which takes me back from the start, where all files are mixed. How can I import one folder at a time keeping the sorted files in each folder ?
    Thank you,
    Kind Regards,

      Hi Bruno
      This tutorial is very old now. I need to up date it.
      Try this:
      Go to the Project Media Tab and press on top of [B]Media Bins[/B]
      Right-click and select [B]Create New Bin[/B]. Create your three folders this way.
      Now press on top of [B]Folder 1[/B]
      Go to Explorer Tab. First you need to find all your main folders and [B]Favourite[/B] them. Go to Computer - C or D Drive (drive that contains your media files) - Users - [I]your name[/I] - My Videos - [I]click on top and [B]Add to Favourites[/B][/I]. Repeat for Pictures, Music, etc.....
      Now using Favourites, find your 3x Sorted Folders. Open the first folder - same as the first one you selected in one of the 3x new Project Media Bin folders. Highlight all files, right-click and select [B]Add to Project Media List[/B].
      Go back to Project Media tab and you will see all files in the correct folder. Select the [B]next[/B] media bin folder and then go back to the Explorer Tab and repeat the process for each separate folder.
