EX1 clips to Vegas 8.0a?

While trying out different NLEs with EX1 I simply keep running into problems. How do I import EX1 clips to Vegas Pro 8.0a? I understood that Vegas should have native support for EX1 but it says that MP4s are in unknown format.

EDIT: I'm speaking about HQ clips which clip browser can not convert to MFX.
EDIT2: Added "Pro 8.0a"

Have you tried using the Sony Clip Browser to re-wrap to MXF?

The workflow most of us use is not with the mp4 clips.

From the Sony website you can download a small program called "Clip Browser". Either via Camera-USB-cable or a seperate SxS card reader you have to emtpy the memory cards with this software.

What the Clip Browser does is quickly unwrapping the mp4 container, in which true MXF-files are archived, and copy them to your PC hard-drive. These MXF files are 100% compatible with Sony Vegas.

regards,
Erwin

Only SQ clips can be rewrapped. I bought EX1 for HQ use only.

Since SQ is HDV compatible and HQ is XDCAM, it sounds as if your system is missing something. Check Sony for Vegas updates. It looks like Vegas should be at 8.0c and you said you had 8.0a.

and once more.... I CAN'T rewrap 720P HQ files to MFX. Clip browser says "unsuported format is specified"

So apparently Vegas is not compatible with HQ clips of EX1? Even if i could rewrap HQ MP4 to MFX what would be the sense in that since MFX is 1440 vertical while MP4 of EX1 is 1920 vertical

Are you using Vegas Pro 8 ? That's what you need,you haven't said which Vegas you're using. If so it should work.

When you go to import and select MP4 file from EX1 does it show all the infos below? Mine simply says "Unknown".

That's correct,vegas won't import files unless they're first changed to mxf.
Did you read the link/tutorial i just sent,a few post's up ? That's exactly what i'm doing,and it goes with no problems,fast.
