i was using Canon XF300 and I got videos in mxf format. i recently installed sony vegas onto my computer and was wondering if there are any certain video types i should convert my footage to before editing on sony vegas i.e. mpeg, avi, etc or does it not matter? thanks.
yes, Sony vegas don’t spports Canon XF300 MXF file, you should convert them to WMV formats which support with Vegas the best. Some freeware supports to convert MXF to WMV, such as Handbrake, but the output wmv video seems don’t supports withe Vegas; I tried a MXF Converter for Mac seems works well for converting MXF video to Sony Vegas, here is the guide: http://www.abettersoft.com/how-to/import-mxf-to-sony-vegas.html
