Convert iPhone Video .MOV to Premiere Pro for Further Editing


As it claimed Adobe Premiere Pro can support MOV format although, you may have a painful experience when using iPhone MOV in Premiere Pro like no picture, video preview lag, render slow or even won’t work. Don’t worry. This article just talks about how to import and edit iPhone video in Premiere Pro CC/CS6 smoothly.

The basic reason why iPhone videos not working in Premiere Pro is that the output videos from iPhone is encoded with H.264 codec. While, Adobe Premiere Pro is pretty picky with the codecs of what it’ll accept; it doesn’t like H.264. To make iPhone videos compatible with Adobe PP, the easy option is to convert your iPhone videos to MPEG-2, an edit-friendly format for Premiere. I use Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac to complete my task.

With this professional video converter, you can encode iPhone video into a Adobe Premiere Pro compatible format like MPEG-2 with least quality loss. You should then be able to import the new file into Adobe with smooth editing without any trouble. What’s more, it can convert AVI, WMV, FLV, MPG, VOB, MKV, etc files for importing and editing in various non-linear editing systems (NLE), including Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Elements, After Effects, iMovie, Final Cut Pro and more. If you are a PC user, pls turn to Brorsoft Video Converter Windows version.
