If you experience any issues importing and editing DxO One H.264 MOV video files in Apple iMovie, you may wish to read this post. It explains a workaround to transocode DxO One H.264 MOV shooting to Apple’s InterMediate Codec for use in iMovie with optimum performance.
The DxO One turns your iPhone into a high-end camera. It is possible to record full HD (1080p) video at 30fps or 720p video at 120fps, which allows for slow motion playback. Though there’s no image stabilization for stills, it does have electronic image stabilization for video. The tiny DxO One shoots video recording using H.264 codec in MOV container format, and the files are really compressed – it seems to have a fixed bitrate of roughly 15 megabits per second, which is about a third of what you’ll get in a standalone camera.
If for whatever reason you came upon issues working with DxO One H.264 MOV video in Apple iMovie, we would recommend transcoding them to a format that is best suitable for use in iMovie first, such as AIC .mov, iMovie’s favorite editing codec, which iMovie will recognize and handle well. Here’s a quick guide telling you how to convert DxO One H.264 MOV video to iMovie preferred AIC .mov format.
