Summary: Facing problems when importing VOB video files into iMovie for further editing? If so, follow the easy workaround here.


If you have got some VOB videos, you will be disappointed when you want to import VOB files to iMovie for further editing and find the program can’t support the format. Fortunately, there is an easy way to solve the issue. Find it out here.

The main reason why you can not transfer VOB video files from to iMovie, incuding iMovie 8/9/11 is that iMovie still can’t recognize VOB format. As far as I know VOB is basically a MPEG-2 video file which is stored in Video_TS folder in a DVD. As this kind of video file usually contains one or several audio tracks and subtitle tracks that are multiplexed together into one stream form, it is not so easy to playback or edit.

If you’re in such a situation, there is an easy way to fix the issue. Since Apple InterMediate Codec(AIC) is the most compatible codec introduced by Apple which ensures maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with iMovie, the common practice for VOB to iMovie workflow is, get a VOB to AIC Converter and transcode the .vob files to AIC MOV, which will save you both time and trouble, and all you need is to drag the result videos for prompt editing. For this purpose, this article will show you how to transcode VOB to AIC MOV in detail.

How to Convert VOB for Editing in iMovie smoothly

Step 1: Download, install and run Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac, and then click the “Add” button to load the .vob videos. You can also use the drag-and-drop method to load the media files to the application UI.

The program is an easy-to-use yet professional app which can be used as a VOB video converter under Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.7 Lion, Snow Leopard 10.6, Leopard 10.5. It is free, clean and safe to install and use. With it, you can effortlessly transcode VOB to AIC MOV for iMovie 08/09/11/FCE, Apple ProRes MOV for Final Cut Pro X/7/6, DNxHD for Avid MC, etc. and it works well and converts flawlessly.


Step 2: Click the Format box and select iMovie —> Apple InterMediate Codec(AIC) (*.mov) as output format.


Tip: Click the Settings icon to adjust video and audio parameters on the Profile Setting as you need to get the best quality video.


Step 3: Click the “Convert” icon under the preview window, and the Mac iMovie AIC Converter will start transcode VOB to AIC MOV for iMovie 08/09/11 on Mac.

After the conversion, click “Open” to locate the result videos and then launch iMovie, choose File > Import > Movies…, to import the converted VOB video into iMovie; prepare for editing. You will find that it’s just a piece of cake to edit VOB files in iMovie.
