How to drag and drop MKV files into Sony Vegas Pro 13 Timeline for Edting?

Sony Vegas Pro importing MKV file problems
"I have some video files in Matroska format (MKV). They don't seem to drag/drop onto the Vegas 13 timeline. Any workaround or will I have to convert them to another format first? Which one/how?"

"I tried converting mkv to mp4 with handbrake, but I found the output video quality was lowered quite a lot. The I read that MKVExtractGUI might be good, so I used that and I get the file that ends in H.264 that can't be used with Vegas Pro or any video players I have. I have no idea where to go from here."
