Problems when editing iPhone MOV with Cyberlink PowerDirector? Fortunately, there is an easy way to fix the issue. Let’s find it out here.
Collected some MOV recording files from my iPhone, but I found these MOV files do not work with my video editor PowerDirector. I’m looking for a video converter to transcode my iPhone MOV to PowerDirector more edit-friendly format.
I saw Brorsoft mentioned in the related forum as a good way to convert iPhone video files to any format including MPEG-2 for PowerDirector, so I decided to try it.
First, download and install Brorsoft Video Converter. It enables you to transcode iPhone MOV(H.264 or H.265 encoded) to MPEG-2, ProRes, DNxHD and more. It enables users to preview and convert iPhone recordings to your wanted video and audio formats, so as to smoothly add them into PowerDirector/Vegas/Premiere, Davinci Resolve, Avid Media Composer to do further editing. The conversion speed seems fine and the videos look good.
Steps to Convert iPhone Video to Cyberlink PowerDirector
Step 1. Import source files
Run the iPhone video converter; click the Add button to load .mov files to the program from your computer. You can also directly drag the video files into the program directly.
Step 2. Select the output format
Click “Format” menu firstly and then follow “Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas” > ” MPEG-2 (*.mpg)” as the output format. MPEG-4, WMV are also the proper choices.
Step 3. Start conversion
Simply click the “Convert” button to start encoding iPhone MOV to Cyberlink PowerDirector friendly MPEG-2. Everything else will be automated. If you have added quite a bunch of video files, it would take some time to convert. In such case, you can click Option and tick the box “Shut down the computer after conversion”.
After the conversion, click “Open” to locate the result videos and then you can import the converted iPhone .MOV files to for editing Cyberlink PowerDirector via its “Import Media Files” option.
