Read this post to learn an easiest way of converting Canon Rebel T6s/T6i (760D/750D) MP4 video to AIC .mov for editing in Apple iMovie with lossless quality.
“Can anyone tell me if Canon EOS Rebel T6s/T6i (760D/750D) movies will work well with iMovie? Thanks in advance.”
If you are planning on buying a new Canon EOS 760D (EOS Rebel T6s / EOS 8000D) or Canon EOS 750D (EOS Rebel T6i / Kiss X8i) camera, you may want to know the answer to this question. The EOS 760D (Rebel T6s) and EOS 750D (Rebel T6i )cameras both feature a movie mode which captures 1080p video up to 30 fps in MP4 format, which allows for great quality footage and easy movie distribution.
Actually, iMovie can recognize Rebel T6s/T6i (760D/750D) as input, but the editing process maybe unstable and unreliable. That’s mainly because MP4 is not an editing format best suited for working with iMovie. To make Rebel T6s/T6i (760D/750D) MP4 full compatible with iMovie, we would recommend transcoding Rebel T6s/T6i (760D/750D) footage to Apple InterMediate Codec, iMovie’s favorite editing codec in advance. This requires third party software like HD Video Converter for Mac.
Read on to learn the steps required to convert EOS 760D/750D MP4 to AIC .mov for iMovie editing by using HD Video Converter for Mac.
