Summary: If for some reason iMovie/FCE refused accepting your Nikon D610 H.264 MOV files, the best workaround is transcoding Nikon D610 footage to Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC), iMovie/FCE’s favorite editing codec, which iMovie/FCE recognizes and handles quite well.
I couldn’t open Nikon D610 MOV video in iMovie’11, please help!
“I had a couple of files that I shot on my Nikon D610 that wouldn’t open using Apple iMovie’11. There were H.264 MOV but got screwed up somehow in the transfer and wouldn’t open. The video was a memorial for a dear friend who died suddenly in a traffic accident. I was recording it to send to his friends who couldn’t come to Paris. Before this, I need to do some basic editing on the D610 files in Apple iMovie. Can anyone tell me what should I do to make iMovie recognize Nikon D610 MOV files as import? Many thanks for your help.”
