My friend filmed some videos on his Fujifilm X-T4 and shared the files on YouTube, but now I’m seeing that Vegas Pro won’t accept the file codecs from X-T4.”
“I’ve spent a solid 3-4 hours trying to convert some .MOV Fujifilm X-T4 video to .MP4 to edit in Vegas Pro 18. I put the video in a free video converter, changed the settings to .MP4, and it took 3 hours to change a 24 minute video – once it finished it just looped a 5 second section of it with the audio playing as normal. YouTube tutorials have all failed me. I’m really struggling here. Thank you.”
