iMovie is a simple yet versatile video-editing program made by Apple. If you own a Mac, then iMovie may be the video editor for you. According to Apple, QuickTime movie is compatible with iMovie 11.
At one time or another, most of us have occasional problems with importing QuickTime movies to iMovie. That’s because your QuickTime movie s encoded with codecs that iMovie can’t recognize.
To overcome this problem, you must use a converter to turn your QuickTime videos into a format that iMovie can use. With QuickTime to iMovie Converter, you’re just a few taps away from importing your QuickTime videos to iMovie for editing. Here is how:
Convert QuickTime to iMovie 11 format
Step 1: Download Video Converter for Mac. Follow the installation wizard to install it on your computer.
Step 2: Launch Video Converter and Click the Add Video button or simply drag the MOV files to the program window to start importing the files. Imported MOV videos will appear in the left of the main window.
Step 3: From the bottom of the program window, click the down arrow to Profile and choose MP4 as output format. You can tweak the format settings: resolution, codec, bit-rate and so on.
Step 4: Set output path and click the convert button to start conversion. How long the conversion will last depends on the speed of your computer, the length of the MOV files and the output file settings (bit rate, resolution, etc.).
When finished, you can import the videos to iMovie and start your movie editing project.
