Finalcut MOV into Vegas

I have two Finalcut XDCam EX Quicktime MOVs that I would like to use in Sony Vegas.. Will Vegas import the files correctly, or do I need to get a codec or something?

CalibratedSoftware has a EX MOV decoder for Windows.
http://www.calibratedsoftware.com/QXD.asp
The app must support Quicktime though (that's what MOV is after all).
Read the page carefully and download the trial version.

If this doesn't work then you'd need to get the original BPAV (contains original MP4 files).
If the video was edited in Final Cut Pro, FCP can export EX MP4 and ClipBrowser can create a BPAV for it.

Another option is to export the sequence or clips as ProRes. Win QT now reads ProRes and therefore so does Vegas.

Yes, that might work and if you don't have ProRes decoder on your Windows box, Apple makes the decoder freely available. Keep in mind that the NLE has to be aware of Quicktime Components though so I'd certainly test before committing to a massive encode (and at much larger file sizes).
