Vegas Pro can not support TS video format? This article will teach you how to import TS videos to Vegas Pro 18/17/16/15. Below is the how to.
TS files are often saved as multiple files on a DVD, i.e. “moviename1.ts,” “moviename2.ts,” “moviename3.ts,” etc. They can be played back by various software DVD players and video editing tools. However, when you try to import TS files to Vegas Pro for video editing and customization, you may find that you can’t import TS files to Vegas Pro due to the incompatibility of video formats. Is there any possible ways to solve this problem?
On Vegas Pro Support page, we can find that TS is one of Vegas Pro 18 and Vegas Pro 17 supported video formats, but many users, especially the Vegas Pro 16 and 15 users, have encountered failure when editing TS in Vegas Pro. The failure may be caused by Vegas Pro version, the TS file codec, the TS file frame rate, your computer processor, etc and we can not give the exact reason for your failure without obtaining more knowledge from you. But the following solutions may help you to fix the failure.
After searching, I’ve found two possible solutions:
Solution 1. Rename the .ts file extension
As some friends suggest, .TS files are technically just MPEG2 files at a very specific resolution. We can try to rename the file extension from .ts to .mpg to allow Vegas Pro to accept the footage.
Solution 2: Convert TS files to Vegas Pro best editable format
As we know, the file formats Vegas Pro supports included MOV, WMV, MPEG-2, etc. Thus, if you desire to edit TS files in Vegas Pro, you’d better to convert TS files to Vegas Pro compatible video format first. And H.264 MOV is the optimal format.
To finish the task, you can adopt Acrok Video Converter Ultimate for help. This software converts any video format to Vegas Pro 18, 17, 16, 15 supported video format. It also allows users to configure the video and audio encoder, bitrate, frame rate, sample rate, resolution, etc to get the best and most compatible video and audio for Vegas Pro all versions.
By the way, if you’re on Windows, please get the Mac version. Now download the right version and start to convert TS file to Vegas Pro.
