Needed to convert Canon EOS Rebel SL1 MOV for editing with iMovie
“Hi, all, hoping for your suggestion! My daughter filmed with a Canon EOS Rebel SL1 (also known as EOS 100D) camera in school and needed to edit Rebel SL1 H.264 MOV files in iMovie for a presentation (her home work). The thing is that iMovie seems not to recognize Rebel SL1 MOV well, so we think we need to convert the Canon H.264 MOV to iMovie’s native AIC MOV and hope for the best…However, we don’t have such a converter installed on our iMac. Does anyone have any recommendation on this? Thanks a lot.”
