XAVC-L & Vegas Pro- Load Sony XAVC-L to Sony Vegas

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to ingest XAVC-L into Sony Vegas Pro 13? As of now I have not been able to edit this format. I know Sony recently released an update to Vegas Pro 13 but unfortunately a XAVC-L plugin was not included. I did not have paid for vegas to convert all my files before use it in Vegas.
So maybe somebody can help me here.
I trow my last bottle in the ocean.
Thank you for the time you spend.

Many guys included you guys above have been complaining about the lack of XAVC-L support in Sony Vegas Pro even the latest version Vegas Pro 13. Although Sony offers some trial software to convert/transcode, we have tried and find it’s still hard to import these professional XAVC L files or even read.

Although there are several third-party software that promise to transcode professional XAVC L files, most of them I have tried either crash upon opening or don’t read. The only piece of transcoding software I currently have tried that has been able to read and transcode professional XAVC L files so far is Pavtube Video Converter for Mac (Best Three XAVC Video Converter for Mac Review), which can easily transcode XAVC L to Sony Vegas Pro friendly format-MPEG-2 without quality loss. If you are a Mac user, please turn to Windows Version here.

Free download, it is 100% clean and safe:


Download and install Pavtube Video Converter on Mac (compatible with Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.7 Lion, 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.5 Leopard and lower versions). Run this program immediately. We choose the Mac version as the guide, Windows version as the same in the steps.
