M2TS files WON'T recognized in Sony Vegas Pro Solved!

“I included an M2TS file from my Sony camcorder that caused Vegas to crash (others here in the forum confirmed the problem).”

If you drag and drop M2TS files to Sony Vegas, Vegas says it’s an unknown format or incompatible, even Vegas crashes or freezes.

Although Sony Vegas Claims it can work with M2TS format, some users still have troubles when importing M2TS files to Sony Vegas (including Vegas Pro 13). And the following problems often complain in the forum:
  • Choppy frames at the end of the MTS footage;
  • Sony Vegas is not able to import the MTS video clip;
  • Sony Vegas crashes after the file is imported;
  • It takes much time to render the MTS videos for Sony Vegas editing.
