I have many MP4 clips, but they won't open in Sony Movie Studio 13. Is there a way to get them in and work with these MP4 files in Sony Movie Studio Platinum
in a quick and lossless way? I've research almost everywhere and finally found a decent solution.
Although Sony Movie Studio can support MPEG-4 format, it might not work with all MP4 files due to the codec issue. You need to find another way to perform the task. As we all know, the most compatible video codec for Sony Movie Studio is MPEG-2, then transocoding MP4 files to MPEG-2 with a third party program is an easy way to edit MP4 videos in Sony Movie Studio
