Summary: Want to import and edit Nikon D3S/D7100 recorded 1080p MOV footage in Adobe Premiere Pro without problems? Here you will find the best solution.


When the Nikon D3 was launched, it had an immediate impact on the DSLR market, and not only in the professional sector. As you know the D3 was Nikon's first DSLR with an FX (full frame) CMOS sensor. Of course, there are some other hot models like D7100 in Nikon’s DSLR series. Both of them are wonderful to be taken to record full HD videos(H.264 MOV) when travelling. Whereas, when users wanna edit those MOV footage in Adobe Premiere Pro before sharing with friends, problems occurred: the Premiere can’t handle the 1080p H.264 files perfectly, the editing work seems so slow.

Q: .h264 .mov files importing only audio

“Does anyone know how to resolve this, pulling my hair out and had to revert to CS5 to get my work done. No video is loading on .h264 .mov files from my Nikon D7100… It's like the codec is missing and PPro is just importing the audio track. Is there some setting or something I can do?”

Well, I’ve found out the solution to fix the Nikon MOV in Adobe Premiere Pro issues. If you are also the Nikon D3S or D7100 owner and had the similar trouble with Premiere Pro, go through the article to check out the solution.

So how to import/load video clips from Nikon D3S/D7100 into Adobe Premiere for editing smoothly with no problems? The reason behind that you can’t edit Nikon DSLR recordings in Premiere smoothly is due to the format and codec. H.264 MOV is a long GOP format highly compressed that is not a good editing format for some common editors. The best method to solve those problems is to transcode Nikon MOV to Adobe Premiere Pro most compatible format, for instance, the MPEG-2 with Brorsoft H.264 MOV to Premiere Pro Converter.
