How to edit Canon EOS R5 MOV in Vegas Pro 19/18/17?

Is there a good way to import Canon EOS R5 8K and 4K MOV files into Vegas Pro maintaining original quality? You can follow this guide to bring MOV footage into Vegas Pro in a very easy and direct way.

The Canon EOS R5 is one of the most exciting cameras of 2020 for underwater photo and video featuring 8K video, a new 45 MP CMOS sensor, in-body image-stabilization, and 12 fps burst shooting! Canon’s designers did a good job with the R5, putting the controls you want at your fingertips without making the body too big or heavy to handhold for extended periods. An essential element of mirrorless technology, the electronic viewfinder allows us to see the image the camera is going to capture with the settings in place at the time. Now the EOS R5’s 8K video produces 35.4-megapixel frame grabs at 30 fps. This is incredible if you need to capture both 8K video and still images at the same time.
