iMovie is an apple video format, usually iMovie did work with it. However sometimes you may meet problems with MOV files when you importing MOV to iMovie for editing, such as can’t imported, and playback issue. And next I will explain you why we often failed to import MOV to iMovie and how to deal with that trouble.
If MOV compressed in codec DV, MPEG-2, AIC, H.264, etc, it can worked well with iMovie on Mac. But if MOV video contains a complex or incompatible video codec, iMovie may reject to accept it. Sometimes if MOV had been edited with some other software, the codec may change either, that can cause problems like can’t importing MOV to iMovie. To solve your trouble, I advise you to use MOV to iMovie Converter for Mac- a professional video converter to convert video formats.
