"I am interested in converting the .mov h .264 files my Nikon D7000 takes, to something that will run smoothly in Sony Vegas Platinum 10, such as a clean .avi, .wmv. It would be nice to know how to set the setting to achieve this. Do you have any idea about it?" I was asked by a friend the other day. If you're getting caught by the editing issues of Nikon D7000 footage, I definitely recommend you a solution - converting the H.264 MOV files to AVI or WMV with Pavtube HD Video Converter, just like my friend had done. Why Pavtube HD Video Converter? Basically, it does a good job in converting H.264 .mov files to AVI, WMV formats for editing in sync and not loose much quality. And it allows you to join the Nikon D7000 clips together, and add audio track to the video as background music. Does it convert MOV to AVI fast? I should say it's much faster than Handbrake.
