About those AVI can’t import problem, how to solve it? Here are two ways for you to take.

1.Use Bandicam MPEG-1 decoder

Because this AVI format is called “Container” formats, you should first figure out what the inner codec in it. That codec was used to encode your video and audio. How to identify the inner codec? Here is a simple app which can help you, it’s called Mediainfo. That small app is free and when you drag your source video into it, clearly inner info will show up.

After figured out what the inner codec in this “Container” then download the Bandicam MPEG-1 decoder to fix your shortage or disorder problem about your codec. This way is simple and easy to tackle the problem if your inner codec is MPEG. But sometimes the codec which used to compress your videos is not MPEG, maybe it’s XviD or other codec. What should you do to solve it? If your inner codec is XviD, then you can go for this configure app named ffdshowwhich can help you decode/encode many video and audio formats, including DivX and XviD . After install and run it your problem will be solved.

2. Powerful third-party all-in-one converter app
After all those steps , if your problem still can’t be solved then I recommend you to go for some third-party converter apps. Most third-party converters have numerous codec in it. So you don’t have to look for the corresponding codec your video used. Here strongly recommend this Pavtube Video Converter, which is an all-in-one converter app with powerful inner decoder. It also has Mac version, Pavtube Video Converter for Mac, which can run on Yosemite system smoothly.

The detailed workflow of using Video Converter to convert AVI files then import into Sony Movie studio.

You can load them by click the “Folder” or “Video” icon on this program’s main UI. Or click “File” > “Add Video/Audio”. Directly drag your video into this software is also very convenient if they are on your desktop.



Step 2: After loading your AVI files successfully, click the format bar to choose the output format you want. In this case, the Sony Movie Studio is our target format, which you can type “Sony Vegas” in the search box on the right-down corner of the format bar UI. Then choose “Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas” > “MOV (AVC) (*.mov)” as your output format.



Step 3: Then you can go to “Settings” UI to adjust your Bit rate or Frame rate if you want. Some previous simple edits can be done with the build-in editor. Click this “Pencil” icon in main UI, it will bring you to a interface, in this place, you can trim your clip by moving tow red arrows easily.

Or select brand name your device on the format list, such as Samsung, iPhone. Then you can enjoy the video without any quality drop or lagging.
