Nikon D7100, D700, two outstanding DSLR cameras, are very popular among professional photographers or the amateurs. It supports full HD 1080p 60i/30p H.264 MOV video recording. However, users find it’s difficult to import Nikon MOV clips to Adobe Premiere Pro or other NLE system.

As far as I know, Nikon footage is highly compressed with H.264 codec, which is unacceptable by various non-linear editing systems (NLE), like Avid Media Composer(5/5.5/6/6.5), Pinnacle Studio, Final Cut Pro (FCP 6/7/X), Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere Pro(CS3/CS4/CS5/CS6), etc. In order to import the MOV files from Nikon camera to Premiere Pro for editing, the easy workaround is to transcode Nikon MOV files to Premiere Pro compatible video formats. Along with some help from a top H.264 MOV Converter, it can be done.
