MP4 to iMovie: Import Canon PowerShot G7 X MP4 to iMovie

Summary: To edit Canon G7 X MP4 in iMovie on Mac Yosemite, you'd better convert PowerShot G7 X MP4 to iMovie best supported format first. For it's a painful experience while importing G7 X MP4 to iMovie, this article will discuss MP4 and iMovie importing issues and offering an effective solution. Or editing G7 X files in other NLEs? Just follow the guide below.

*******************************************

Some people experience no problem editing Canon G7 X MP4 in iMovie, while others are not so fortunate. Following is a question I found in the MP4 to iMovie forum:'Hi, I got a lot of G7 X MP4 videos from my friend and he asked me to edit those Canon G7 X MP4 videos for him. However, I was failed on the very first step. I even could not import G7 X MP4 files into iMovie. What's the problem? Thank you for any tip!'

Why sometimes can't import G7 X MP4 to iMovie? There are two reasons. First, iMovie only supports importing MP4 formats with MPEG4/AAC or H.264/AAC data, not all kinds of MP4 formats. Some MP4 files from like Sony, Hybrid camcorders and other devices cannot be accepted by iMovie. Second, iMovie contains all the essential codecs to read MP4 files. Any different codecs included in audio and subtitle will cause the issue. In the circumstances, we still cannot successfully import MP4 files to iMovie.

All in all, to smoothly import G7 X MP4 to iMovie, you'd better to convert G7 X MP4 to iMovie compatible format. Here, I highly recommend Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac to successfully convert Canon G7 X MP4 to iMovie for further editing. By running it, there's no need to set the codec by yourself; the Mac program has an optimized preset for iMovie (iMovie 11 included).


*******************************************

Step by step guide to convert G7 X MP4 to iMovie on Mac:

Step 1: Drag Canon G7 X MP4 clips to the program directly. Or click'Add video' button to locate G7 X MP4 files you want to add.

Step 2: You can choose "iMovie and Final Cut Express - > Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC) (*.mov)" as the output format. The output format is designed for iMovie 11/09/08 specially.


Tips: You are provided to adjust parameters including audio& video bitrate, frame rate, channel, codec and ect. in "Settings" profile before conversion.

Step 3: Tap "Convert" button to start Canon PowerShot G7 X MP4 to iMovie AIC MOV conversion on Mac Yosemite.

*******************************************

Conclusion: Once the conversion completes, you can get the generated videos via "Open" panel. After that, launch iMovie, choose "File>>Import>>Movies…" to import the converted G7 X MP4 video to iMovie. Now, it's time for you to start editing journey.

Good News: Never miss to get Saving up to $44.1, MXF/MTS/M2TS/MKV/FLV/MOV Converter.etc at Pavtube Bundles Deals, such as: HD Video Converter for Mac($35) + DVD Creator for Mac($35) = $39.9, Save $30.1
